I called on mine today. It is part of the recall. I really think I'm going to change mine out with braided lines with a bleeder for the inboard caliper half....so I am not sure how to refuse the recall and get it off the "books".

BTW, they WON'T send out parts for a recall (understandably) so don't even ask....I did, just for the heck of it. ONLY dealer repairs.

Thanks Andy. It is better to hear about a recall in the forms than find out the hard way, with a failure.
This would make a great thread so we could keep up with any recalls, etc. that effect Airstreams.

You can sign up with the government NHTSA to receive any and all recalls via email for any specific company, including Airstream. Here is the notice I got a couple days ago about this recall. They provided the link to get you the details of the recall.

Please click on the following NHTSA Campaign ID links to view the recall information.
NHTSA Campaign ID Number : 12V532 Recall Results | Safercar.gov | NHTSA

Manufacturer : AIRSTREAM, INC.
Make / Model Years : AIRSTREAM / 2006-2009
Subject : The Hydraulic Brake Hose may Fail due to Flexing

Our 2006 is on the 'recall' list. We are in Tucson for several months volunteering. Any suggestions on where to take our trailer to have this fixed?

I had the same problem with the Ford recall a few years back. I finally gave up and had the dealer do the work to get the recall cleared. They are pretty serious about safety issues, even if you fix the problem yourself. They won't quit badgering you until a dealer does the fix.

Also know that many times a recall is announced because an issue is discovered and there is limited avilability of repair parts. Call the nearest dealership and find out availability.

I worked for Ford Parts and Service division during the time of the Pinto fuel tank recall. There was lots of pressure to get every vehicle identified and handled becuase this was a high visability concern. Even cars in wrecking yards were repaired. Let the dealer do their job and then if you want to modify your vehicle after that feel free to do so. It is your vehicle and you are responsible for it.

Nice of them to finally get around to this.
I already spent considerable time and money repairing it.

Here's one of the posts here, @ #6:

I may be one of the AS owners that precipitated this recall. Do a search on the NHTSA site for ODI ID number10327321, which is my report to NHTSA on this brake system problem. The following link may also take you there http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/complaints/results.cfm.

My 91 Classic 34' had the disc brake conversion installed at the factory a few years ago. I wonder if these conversions are in this recall? I have Dexter axles Kodiak hubs and discs and the Carlisle actuator. Wouldn't hose routing be just like the production units? I was just at the factory... trust work there over a dealer.

Andy what do you think?

Check out the hoses to be sure.

Unfortunately, Oasis RV is no longer neither a dealer nor an authorized repair center. Haven't been for some times. They are good for non-warranty work, but can not do warranty. However, Lazydays RV in Tucson recently announced that they are now doing sales, parts & service for Airstreams, and are listed on the Airstream website as a dealer...I'd check with them about this recall.
