What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began on Dec. 21, 2020, and affects Winnebago Era 170X vehicles from model years 2012-2021.
“The weld nut was installed on the wrong side of the bracket where the shoulder belt attaches, reducing the retention strength of the seat belt,” NHTSA said. “In the event of a crash, the shoulder belt upper anchorage may not provide adequate protection to the passenger, increasing the risk of injury.”
If you purchased a recreational vehicle that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact your Winnebago dealer to schedule a free repair. Dealers will coordinate the inspection of affected units and the installation of a serrated flange nut in the intended weld nut location, free of charge.
