Here's one that I ran across late last year. It was an almost new, one owner coach. He had purchased new & I was the 1st to service it. So this poor installation had to be the factory or the dealer. He was darn lucky his wall thermostat had failed. After replacing the wall thermostat I only noticed the problem after walking by the exhaust (outside the trailer) and noticed that no hot air was coming out. The last picture shows the black spot on the wall that was left after I corrected the installation. Scary stuff. Tim

The aforementioned link wouldn't work for me, but this one did : http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/results.cfm. They mention 'park models' . . . .this kinda confuses me.

Crikeys . . . we all know of the build quality issues . .. this is beyond the pale. Did we contract FEMA to do this? Jiminy Crickets I would think we could sue the pants off for this type of stupidity. I know some FEMA folk are superb hard working types who care, I don't mean to malign. I speak of the crony laden fools initially working Katrina.

Just talked to Suburban MFG. Co. and the last recall they had on a furnace was in the late seventies, the recall that people are referring to is the trailer manufacture Thor, when installing the Suburban furnace on line at the factory they forgot to cut the hole in the side of the trailer for the furnace exhaust vent, therefore the exhaust gases which is carbon monoxide and is deadly will be dumping into the trailer. Suburban has always been a good furnace and the technicians have always been really good about taking care of their custromer's.This needs to read THOR MANUFACTURING RECALL NOTICE
