The affected trailers are equipped with the roof AC option, eliminating the roof vent. As such, since the window does not open, there is inadequate venting for the gases emanating from the range. In the event of a situation where the propane gas continues to flow, if the gas range cannot vent, an ignition source may ignite the propane gas, resulting in a fire.

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles manufactured May 5, 2014, to August 18, 2014. The affected vehicles are equipped with certain 1100W, 1500W, or 2000W inverters sold as a standalone option with both the Thermo King TriPac EVOLUTION and TriPac-e Auxiliary Power Units ("APU").

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2013 Freightliner Business Class M2 vehicles manufactured May 29, 2012, to June 11, 2012, and equipped with certain compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel tank systems manufactured by Agility Fuel Systems. In the affected fuel systems, due to a separationof the valve seat from the valve stem, the manual tank shutoff valve can get internally stuck in the closed position while being opened, although the knob may indicate that the valve is open. If the valve is stuck closed, the flow of fuel would be blocked from the fuel container to the engine. Such a condition poses a safety risk to service personnel as there is no safe way to depressurize the fuel system and service the subject valve when it is stuck in the closed position, increasing the risk of injury to the service personnel. There may also be a small fuel leak through the valve stem when the valve seat becomes detached, increasing the risk of fire. The affected fuel container may also become over-pressurized if the stuck valve goes undetected for a period of time, or is not repaired in a timely manner, and the ambient temperature increases significantly.

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner C2 school buses manufactured September 17, 2013, to August 27, 2014.

The propane fuel injectors in these fuel rails may not be properly secured by the retainer clip and a fuel delivery tube may leak. Either condition may result in a propane leak which may cause a stall. Additionally, leaking propane in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 FCCC S2G, MT45G, and MT55G truck chassis manufactured September 17, 2013, to August 27, 2014. The affected vehicles may be equipped with LPI fuel rails for 6 and 8 liter engines. The propane fuel injectors in these fuel rails may not be properly secured by the retainer clip and a fuel delivery tube may leak. Either condition may result in a propane leak which may cause a stall. Additionally, leaking propane in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
