Winnebago is recalling one model year 2008 Aspect motorhome manufactured on September 12, 2007. The motorhome is equipped with a Ricon manufactured wheelchair lift which has an optional armored pendant cable. The cable may have been installed such that it doesn’t clear the wheelchair lift and without a protective cover, or a misinstalled protective cover.
The cable may contact the power lug at the base of the wheel chair lift causing a short circuit that could result in a fire.
Ricon will be conducting this recall on behalf of Winnebago. Ricon will notify the affected owner and will provide a supplemental cover kit and instructions, free of charge. This recall campaign is expected to begin during December 2012. Owners may contact Winnebago at 1-641-585-3535 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
