Jayco, Inc. is recalling 322 model year 2016 Octane Super Lite travel trailers because they may have been built without a necessary 30 amp circuit breaker. If there is an electrical short on an unprotected circuit, the trailers will have an increased risk of a fire.
An engineer accidentally discovered this production error. While researching vendor denial of claims for bad converters that were actually okay, the Jayco engineer found that after a design change to add a side battery box to certain Octane Super Lite Travel trailers, the required 30amp circuit breaker was omitted. Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will install a 30 amp circuit breaker, free of charge.
