Grand Design recalls fifth wheels for propane leak issue

Grand Design RV is recalling certain 2018-2019 Grand Design Solitude fifth-wheel trailers. The liquid propane (LP) gas line on the optional pull-out outside kitchen may contact the underside of the hot grill.

Contact with the hot grill may result in a propane leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

Grand Design will notify owners, and dealers will re-route the LP gas line to prevent it from contacting the bottom of the grill, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 16, 2018. Owners may contact Grand Design RV customer service at 1-574-825-9679. Grand Design’s number for this recall is 900013.

    I have had many problems with my Solitude 384GK, took it into Grand Design and they didn’t want to fix the list of problems that we had. I finally convinced them to let us bring our 5th wheel in for the repairs and it still wasn’t fixed properly. You would think that if they built it they should know how to fix it. Finally took it to 1st Choice RV Repair which was Scott’s suggestion. Scott is the Regional Manager for Grand Design.
    They repaced the rear A/C unit at Grand Design now it doesn’t blow through the vents, they also replaced the black waste water dump valve and now we have septic fumes in the unit. I am very dissatisfied with the Solitude, I just wanted my 5th wheel fixed right, is that too much to ask for? I am taking my Solitude back to 1st Choice RV to get it fixed the right way. I am going to the Grand Design Rally in ElkHart, In. to share my nightmarish experiences.

    We bought a Reflection 337RLS back in October and put in storage for the winter, because winter comes early here in Vermont. Took it out April 30 and were on the road May 4th for a 7759 mile and 20 campground break in test. There were basically no problems and the ones we did have ere very minor. This our third trailer and it it the best one so far. We are very happy with it in all respects. In spite of what Booneyrat said, we have found it to be very well constructed. We had also visited the factory and we liked what we saw in their production line.

      Apparently you bought from a good dealer…I did not as mine came from Blue Dog RV in Pasco,Washington…don’t go to those people…run away as fast as you can. At any rate it took me almost six months to finally find and fix all the things the factory should have fixed…or any one of their so called “PDI’s” should have caught.It was not all the dealers fault since they hire a bunch of flunkies anyway at that particular lot,but the quality control of Grand Design has went downhill since Winnebago took over.Good for you for getting a non-lemon.We are not all that fortunate.

    Oh No… My husband and I just bought a Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. Should we be concerned? Any recalls on this model? 295RL

      Hi Cheryl,
      Here’s a link to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website where you can enter your vehicle’s VIN to see if it has ever been involved in a recall: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls
      We hope this helps, and that you don’t find any recalls for your new fifth wheel! 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

      Cheryl, call the number on the recall and they will let you know if your coach is involved in the recall.

    Grand Design needs to recall a lot more of their shabby built products to “fix” all the problems they should have “fixed” in their so called “three PDI inspections”. Then they need to go after some of their dealers who shove the junk out the gate for a fast buck.

      Hello, Booneyrat. We are on the verge of buying a Grand Designs Solitude 344GK. We have read many positive reviews, so we were surprised and dismayed to read your comments. Can you tell us more? Thank you.

      1. Booneyrat

        I highly recommend you get a very good RV technician,not from the same dealer you are buying from,and have them check the rig over well.It may cost a few bucks,but if they find many problems it will be cheaper than finding out later on that Grand Design’s quality control program is a flaming joke.

      2. Booneyrat

        Any Grand Design product…buyer beware.

      We are looking at buying a new solitude. One with buckhouse. We have a 2016 north point. Any recommendations
