Reason for Recall :
Certain Jaco Highland Ridge and Starcraft RVs recalled. Models equipped with a Winntec model 6020 two-stage propane regulator installed are recalled because the regulator may supply elevated, intermittent or low propane pressure to the appliances.

Description of the Safety Risk :
An increase in propane pressure could cause the appliance’s flame to become larger, and under certain rare circumstances, may ignite adjacent materials resulting in a fire. An excessive flame can affect appliances that can be affected are the stovetop, oven, water heater, furnace, and refrigerator. Increased propane pressure would also cause the regulator to vent propane continuously through the pressure relief valve. In an enclosed area or under certain conditions, the vented propane could accumulate at the front of the recreational vehicle and, if ignited, could result in a fire or explosion.

Description of the Cause :
Certain Winntec model 6020 two-stage propane regulators contain a second-stage valve seat that cannot regulate propane flow and pressure in two different ways. First, the second stage valve seat in the regulator has an inadequate mechanical lock, resulting in seal migration. Once out of position, the valve seal will not properly regulate propane flow and pressure to the recreational vehicle appliances. Second, the rubber hoses (pigtails) that connect the onboard propane cylinders to the regulator release a plasticizer, a liquid that collects in the body of the regulator. When in contact with the plasticizer, the physical properties of the second-stage valve seal can change, making it easier to degrade during use and easier to migrate out of position. Irregular performance from the recreational vehicle appliances may indicate that the propane regulator is experiencing the safety defect. The smell of propane may be present at the regulator, which would indicate the regulator is venting due to high pressure.
