Engine Air Water Separator Recall

Anyone else receive a recall on this from Winnebago? Did you get it addressed yet? How long did it take?

I got one, called my dealer and he had no knowledge of the recall. Winnebago told me that I couldn't do the repair myself and if I didn't get it done I might experience engine damage.

Don't blame you for staying away from Camping World. I actually bought my rig from them at a show, not knowing what kind of dealer they were, and have come to the same conclusion, but, that's another story. On this water separator "Campaign" of recall, I believe it is something simple than can be taken care of by us owners, rather than taking the rig, in some cases, hundreds of miles to a shop. If anyone stumbles across an answer I would be interested in doing it myself.....

I have attached the campaign, and i don't like taking motor home in for service.
Winnebago wont sell you campaign kit, but the Rubber Vacuator, i found on 2017 Journey parts list, and found the part number, 191468-01-000 or Donaldson part # P522958, cost about 20 with shipping from Litchinn. You will also need a hose clamp.

Is this a chassis issue?

Our mail service has our notice but I haven't had them send me a scan yet.
Thank you for the PDF but it doesn't clear much up for me.
Is this for Freightliner chassis?
I'm going to FCCC (Gafeney) Tuesday for annual service might add this if it is.
Is this part of the fuel tank or tank fill, it sure doesn't look like part of the engine.

Not sure if freight-liner part, but it on the bottom of the air intake hose. On ours, if you follow the large hose that comes down from driver side air intake, and look under the coach at that point, and you will see a plastic box that it goes into, and on the bottom of that box there is a about 3 inch round piece of round plastic that drops down from the center of the box, if the bottom of that round part is solid, that is where you would cut off the plastic and add the rubber vacuator.

I was able to order the part from my local Freightliner dealer, less than $5. I'll install it myself once I get it.

Take an 1 and 1/4 inch drill bit center it in the 6mm hole and drill out the opening. Buy a bypass vent and attach it to the drain line you just drilled. All you want to do is enlarge the opening so debris can easily drain out. The bypass vent is closed like holding your index finger and thumb closed. When water and debris goes down the drain tube the end of the bypass opens (yes gravity works) drains and then closes-it is just a rubber hose with a closed end that is opened when draining and closes when empty. I am sure if you look around the underside of your MH you will see bypasses that I have tried to explain. Beats the heck out of warranty scheduling and work.

I got the notice (2016 Journey) and crawled under to see what I had. I have the correct part and I indicated so on the return request. If you can remove / install a SS clamp you can change this simple but important part in less than a minute.

cheers,
Joopy

I was at Freightliner for my annual service. They would not do it.

Did they say why they wouldn't do it?

It's nothing more than a common duckbill valve, and could be purchased at any boat parts supply.
