Defect Summary: ON CERTAIN TRAVEL TRAILERS, THE ELECTRICAL WIRING INSTALLED IN THE REAR OF THE REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT COULD CONTACT THE TOP METAL FINS OF THE REFRIGERATOR CONDENSER COIL. THE HEATING COIL AND FINS COULD REACH TEMPERATURES THAT APPROACH THE TEMPERATURE RATING OF THE WIRING, AND THE METAL FINS HAVE SHARP EDGES THAT COULD CUT OR ABRADE THE SHEATHING OF THE WIRING. 
Consequence Summary: THE MOVEMENT OF THE TRAILER, COMBINED WITH THE NORMAL REFRIGERATOR MOVEMENTS AND THE EFFECT OF THE HEAT, COULD CAUSE THE WIRING TO BE ABRADED, WEAR THROUGH THE WIRE INSULATION, AND CAUSE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT. IF SUCH SHORTING OCCURRED, A FIRE COULD RESULT. 
Corrective Summary: DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE REFRIGERATOR, ADD A PROTECTIVE COVER TO THE WIRING, AND ANCHOR OR RE-ROUTE THE WIRING AWAY FROM THE REFRIGERATOR COIL. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN MARCH 24, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT AERO COACH AT 1-574-537-0700.
