Reporting a problem with your RV
If you believe there is a serious safety issue with your RV, first contact the manufacturer. If you believe it’s especially critical and requires immediate action, contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA). If the agency receives similar reports from a number of people about the same product, this could further indicate that a safety-related defect may exist that would warrant the opening of an investigation.
