How to Handle RV Recalls
Chances are you’ve experienced a vehicle recall, but did you know that RVs can have safety recalls, as well? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as well as manufacturers, monitor rigs and equipment for safe operations. You should be contacted if your RV has any recalls; however, you can also check by putting your VIN into the NHTSA database—or use the Togo RV app, which automatically tracks recalls. If you plan to purchase a used RV, it’s especially important to do a search. Head to Togo RV to learn more about how to read an RV recall notice and what actions to take next.
