The following is a list of RV-related recalls for December 2011 compiled by the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA).

• Keystone RV Co. has revised its remedy process and is again recalling certain 2009-2011 vehicles with the “generator ready” option, or with standard generator. Some IOTA ITS-50R transfer switches are experiencing failures when exposed to high electrical loads. Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will replace the transfer switch, free of charge. The remedy for the previous recall (10V-594) was to inspect and tighten the switch connections. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. Owners may contact Keystone Customer Service at 1-866-425-4369.

• Spartan is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 K2 recreational vehicles manufactured from September 30, 2010, through November 22, 2011, rated at 52,000 lbs and equipped with 3030 brake chambers. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 121, “Air Brake Systems” because they do not meet the park brake and draw bar requirements. Spartan will notify owners and install improved brake chambers, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Spartan at 1-517-543-6400.
