Component: STRUCTURE:BODY:DOOR Potential Number of Units Affected: 18 Summary:
 NEWELL IS RECALL CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 MOTOR COACHES MANUFACTURED FROM MARCH 12, 2009 THROUGH MARCH 29, 2010. THE ENTRY DOOR MAY SUDDENLY OPEN DUE TO A WIRING SHORT. Consequence:
 IF THIS OCCURRED DURING TRAVEL IT COULD CAUSE DRIVER DISTRACTION, AND/OR ALLOWING SOMEONE WHO IS NOT SEATED TO FALL OUT OF THE COACH CAUSING INJURY OR DEATH. Remedy:
 DEALERS WILL ADD A SAFETY INTERLOCK SYSTEM THAT REMOVES ALL ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE DOOR WHEN THE PARKING BRAKE IS RELEASED.

Ya gotta be kiddin' me, folks. Since when is a "safety interlock system" that lets the entry door fly open really a "safety interlock system" at all? You might as well put a Bible next to the door for a quick prayer on your way out.

If you've got a lemon Newell motor coach, don't take a chance. Get it fixed right away. And if your dealer or the Newell factory can not or will not help you, then call us. Getting rid of lemon Rv's, and getting your money back or a new one, is what we do. Every day. Since 1978.

Because life's too short to drive a lemon Rv,
especially one whose doors fly open on you.
