    SUMMARY:

    Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Hurricane and Windsport motor homes manufactured January 30, 2013, to March 6, 2015. In the affected motor homes, the vehicle exhaust is located near a storage compartment where heat may build-up, causing the compartment to melt. CONSEQUENCE:

From what I read, it is only the 34J models that are affected. Of course, they may have just used the 34J as the example but that is what I read.
