This Recall May Lead To Low Visibility

There are a potential 13 affected units, which may lead you to believe that it will not hinder you, but do you know how safe the bus you are riding on is?

With only a potential 38 affected units, this recall may also go undetected, fly under the radar, and leave you injured, before you even realize what is going on. Starcraft RV issued recall number 9902356. However, a notification schedule has yet to be provided. Involved models include...
- Certain Launch Outfitter 24RLS (UT) travel trailers equipped with the sleeper/tri-fold sofa or theater seating
These vehicles have an electrical outlet, between the sleeper and sofa, that does not provide Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Protection. The sink, also located in the same vicinity, poses an increased risk of electric shock hazard to you, or anyone else in the RV. People may receive minor or severe burns, other types of injuries, or death is even a possibility.
