    Thanks, Rob. It appears to affect travel trailers only, so I guess the regulators used on the front-mounted tanks are different than those used on fifth wheels with the LP tanks in compartments on different sides.

    I just ordered a new one from Amazon to be delivered today. We're leaving on a 3 month trip on Wednesday and figure it's one less problem to worry about. There might be a mad rush to order them now that the word is out. From what I've read, Grand Design won't notify us until pretty late in June.

    Ours started leaking about 3 months after taking delivery. Our dealer contacted GD and they authorized replacement. Our dealer put a better regulator in and we haven't had any issues since. Our dealer also told us at the time that there was a huge issue with the regulators being used by GD and they were expecting a recall at any time. Looks like it took about a year and a half.

    There was a tech bulletin out on this. It is for only center GD models. So far Reflection models do not seem to be affected. However reading the bulletin, it appears to be a supplier issue. On top of that it might be affecting more than GDRV as they have notified other manaufacturer of the issue. It will be interesting to see if this recall grows to other line ups on the GD side as well as the rest of the industry.

    I saw a list of affected units by VIN number range. All the Grand Design trailers, as far as I know, start of with "573". On mine, the next two are letters and on mne they are "FM"....and there was nothing in that list that had an FM in the VIN number.

    My (unofficial) understanding on VIN breakdown is;

    573 - World manufacture identification (Grand Design RV)
    F - 5th wheel trailer
    x - Line (S -Solitude M - Momentum?)
    xx - Length feet (group) Does not indicate the actual measured length of RV
    2 - Number of axles
    x - Check digit
    x - Model year (J - 2018)
    1 - Manufacturing plant (Middlebury, Indiana)
    1 - Plant line
    xxxxx - Production sequence number

    My 2018 (J) Solitude (S) 310GK is 573 F S 36 2 9 J 1 1 xxxxx

    So any VIN starting with 573F would be a 5th wheel and so far as Rob pointed out this looks like it only effects tag trailers.

    Chris, thanks for posting that.....it's interesting and enlightening how to break down a VIN number and the actual meaning of each character.

    Here's the blurb of affected VIN's
    https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/202...1V393-3677.PDF

    Vehicle 1 : 2016-2021 Grand Design Imagine, Transcend, Momentum
    Vehicle Type : TRAILERS
    Body Style :
    Power Train : NR
    Descriptive Information : Grand Design began receiving reports of thermal events at LP gas appliances
    beginning in September 2020. Investigations revealed a potential defect in the WinnTec LP regulator. Independent 3rd party lab testing eventually confirmed that the
    regulator was failing, resulting in high pressure LP gas being pushed to the
    appliances, creating the potential for a thermal event or fire. Recall population
    includes all vehicles that were built with a Winn-Tec LP regulator. Other products use
    LP regulators from other manufacturers/suppliers and are not affected by this recall.
