Keystone/Montana Recall

Just found the following notice in the latest RVTravel Newsletter.

"Keystone RV is recalling 49 MY 2007- 2008 Montana fifth wheel recreational trailers. Excess paint may cause the lug nuts to lose torque over time and could ultimately cause wheel separation if the torque is not maintained. Wheel separation could result in poor vehicle handling increasing the risk of property damage and a vehicle crash. Dealers will remove the wheels, remove the paint from the hub face wheel mounting surface and then reinstall and torque the wheels to the proper specification. The recall is expected to begin during August 2007."

Stay tuned or call your dealer if you suspect you might be included?!

Would have to be the steel painted wheels as there is no paint on the aluminum wheels.

The paint was on the drums. The dealer removed the wheels and removed the paint from the wheel mounting area of the drums.

Still have to torque regularly anyway with the Aluminum rims, not sure of the hazards other than to those who refuse for some unknown reason to check torque on lugs?????
