Heartland RV (Heartland) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Elkridge and model year 2012-2013 Bighorn Silverado fifth wheel vehicles. Certain vehicles manufactured with liquid propane (LP) generators may have the LP supply line connected incorrectly to the generator.
If the LP supply line is connected incorrectly, the generator may vent liquid propane into the generator compartment. In the presence of an ignition source, the vented propane can result in an explosion.
Heartland will notify owners and dealers will inspect and correct the LP supply line fitting as necessary, free of charge. Heartland has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Heartland at 1-888-262-5992.
