well that was confusing. Of course I have one affected, but the 800 number is only on one page of the site.

If anyone gets the chance, copy the 800 number and post it on here.

Thanks.

I filled out the online survey and called the 800 number but only got a recording. Has anyone actually received new deadbolt cylinders? Were they difficult to install? How long did it take to receive the replacements?

I filled out the survey and called the 800# and talked to a very nice polite lady. She asked me a couple of questions, I gave her the number that's on my key and she said new lock cyls and the tool to install them will be sent to me along with a return envelope for the old cyls. and the tool.

I haven't received them yet, takes a while to get to Canada.

Well I cheked the my keys for my fifth wheel and it is on the recall. will be making the call.

By the way, if your RV is a year or so off the date, I would suggest you check anyway. Locks may have been used from a previouse years purchase.

Update: I made the call and have new cylinders and keys being sent, along with the HF-347 key to remove the cylinders. Less than 3 minutes on the phone.

Thank you for posting the recall. Also this is for all RV's not just Travel Trailers!
