Two new recalls on our 2018 Impact

We got a phone call today from our dealer about two new recalls on our 2018 Impact 330. One concerns the brakes and one concerns the furnace. No emails, nothing on the Keystone site yet. They said we could bring it in on 10/19/18 and they will do the repairs while we wait.
I hope it is not a long wait, we are heading out again on 10/21

I got the furnace recall from Keystone in a letter last week. Seems the exhaust tube gets too hot so the fix is to put a fiberglass tube around it. Takes about 15 minutes to fix it. I called my dealer to see if I could do it myself and he told me they had to do it and if it was not done Keystone would flag the DMV and I would not be able to get new license plate tags when they are due. I've never heard of a dealer being able to do that even with automobiles and I don't believe it.

I had a good chuckle over that statement!

As for the "flagging the DMV" thing..I've not heard of that either, and I've had a LOT of dealings with the DMV on a LOT of vehicles. Not sure I'm buying it, particularly over a furnace that has nothing at all to do with vehicle operation. I don't think the DMV cares if our heaters work correctly.

I seriously doubt Keystone can even know for sure where anyone has their RV registered at any given time, so which state or country would they "flag"?

It would be interesting to hear if anyone has had that experience.

I'm in the car business. The only registration renewal issues I've encountered with recalls in CA relate to emissions recalls, other wise, at least CA, could care less.

I believe the recall is for wiring getting to close. Any recall has to be performed by an authorized service center as there is forms that have to be filled out, and often times photos.

Never heard of any RV maker “flagging” the DMV.

Call it "postulation", "speculation" or maybe even "WAGGING" (Wild A** Guessing), but I'd suspect that if there is a "governmental mandated recall" then the manufacturer would have a requirement to report the progress of the recall to that governmental agency. That's probably in percent complete, percent remaining, percent notified, etc. As for my Cougar, Keystone wouldn't have a clue whether it's registered in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin or even Utah ??? So there's no earthly way they could "flag the DMV" not to renew my registration because they haven't "fixed my heater"..... Orwellian rumor at its best.....
