All safety recalls per Feds must be done by a registered dealer or a designated dealer by the manufacturer. Been there done that. As for AS it's all about liability, if you do it yourself I am sure it's fine, but if anything were to happen and AS authorized you to do the work they as well as you would be liable, now it's only you, unless of course when you get in a suite because the tanks fell off (hopefully never) and you bring AS into the suite. Not quite as simple as replacing or supplementing four screws.

My last comment was meant as humour. I love going to the USA. But really, things are a bit more relaxed up here. The dealer (canadian) sent me the screws. And you are right. I will install them and get a tech to sign off on it after he inspects them (or maybe I will forget).
You know, sometime we worry too much about small stuff. I mean we go and change tires and wheels to LT tires and don't think nothing of suits and liabilities. But some tremble at the thought of 4 screws on a tray. Or installing stronger bolts and locks. But, we all have our opinions. That is what makes our two countries great.
In 2006, I dropped my 5th wheel on the back of my truck (don't ask). A bad day you think? Well not really. My wife was underneath, and she escaped without a scratch. So it was a good day. The insurance covered the $7000 worth of damages. Relax! Throw a log on the fire. I did that night.

Cheers

Al
