December 20, 2011

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 11V561000 SamAlert!

Component:  Equipment: Other, Labels

Potential number of units affected: 805

Summary: Keystone is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Cougar fifth wheel trailers manufactured from May 12, 2006 through February 12, 2009 for incorrect information on the federal identification tag and tire and loading information label. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of part 567 certification. The subject vehicles were manufactured with a label that lists the maximum tire pressure of 80 PSI instead of the correct maximum pressure of 65 PSI. 

Consequence: Overinflating tires increases the risk of tire failure and property damage.

Remedy: Keystone will mail to consumers the corrected label or the customer will have the option for dealers to install the label free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during December 2011. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369.

Notes: Keystone safety recall number is 11-171. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.Safercar.Gov.
