|Tire Labeling Error Creates Recall for Starcraft Launch Rv's|
Manufacturer: Starcraft RV, Inc.
SUMMARY:Starcraft RV, Inc. (Starcraft) is recalling certain model year 2014 Launch 17FB and 17SB travel trailers manufactured May 5, 2013, through December 9, 2013, and equipped with the extreme package option. There is incorrect tire size information printed on the federal labels. The tire information on the label states the tire size as 14C when it should be tire size 15C. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and Motorcycles."
CONSEQUENCE:Installing a tire of incorrect size could result in excessive tire wear and may cause instability in towing of the travel trailer which could increase the risk of a crash.
