Dometic RV Awnings Recalled Due to Risk of Sudden Opening

About 27,098 power awnings designed for RV’s are being recalled because they could open while the vehicle is in motion, posing a potential risk of accidents.  

A 9100 Power awnings recall was announced by the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) on May 9, after the manufacturer Dometic USA confirmed there had been a mistake in the assembly process, which may cause the awnings motor to fail, resulting in the potential for random openings.

Dometic began investigating reports of the awnings opening in early April and were able to diagnose the problem by rearranging the assembly sequence. Dometic notified their OEM and dealer base to recreate proper assembly instructions for consumers. The company is still contacting consumers with instructions on how to repair the product.

The recall consists of the 9100 Power Awning models with serial numbers ranging from 306XXXXX through 314XXXXX that can be located on the fabric of the awning on near the right roller tube. The awnings were sold in lengths ranging from 10’ to 21’ and weigh approximately 43 to 69 pounds.

The company recommends that consumers with the recalled RV awnings should stop driving their vehicles if the awnings have been installed and contact Dometic USA at 1-888-943-4905 for specific instructions to repair the product.
