I'll update the non-rv recalls as needed, and I'll post some newer RV recalls.
To check past RV recalls on a searchable database, go to RV RECALLS and enter your RV information.
Keep in mind, this list grows all the time, so it is a good idea to check periodically.

For RV specific recalls, visit RV RECALLS

Here's some of the newer recalls on RV and camping related items.

-Industry supplier Dometic USA announced that it has identified a potential condition related to its 9100 Power Awnings, Weatherpro Awnings and Motor Service Kits and has initiated a recall and replacement of all the affected power awning units.
According to a press release, in April 2013 the company had determined that if an important step was bypassed in the installation of the power awnings, this could potentially damage the awning’s motor. As a result, if damage does occur to the motor, the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, while the coach or vehicle is at rest or in transit.
This potential condition affects only the power awning products manufactured between February 13, 2013, (306XXXXX serial #) through April 9, 2013, (314XXXXX serial #). The serial number appears on a label on the right underside of the fabric and on the roller tube. On the power awning field Motor Service Kit the serial number appears on the end cap of the shipping tube.

- Columbus Camping Chairs Due to Presence of Mold; Sold Exclusively at Big 5 Sporting Goods
Chairs were found to contain a variety of molds that could cause respiratory or other infections in individuals with chronic health problems or who have impaired immune systems.
Rec-Out; toll-free at (888) 885-9129, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for more information. Consumers can also email the firm at customerservice@rec-out.com

-On May 24, 2013, The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration issued Emergency Order Number 2013-002 mandating a recall of all cylinders manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company, Inc. (Lite Cylinder), Franklin, Tennessee, and marked as authorized under DOT-SP 14562 (and DOT-SP-13957 as authorized therein), DOT-SP 13105; any cylinder requalified under H706, and any cylinders manufactured under M5729. This recall order also applies to any person who is in possession of an affected packaging that is subject to this order.
The emergency order is based on an investigation of Lite Cylinder's operations and production history that revealed probable violations and unsafe conditions and practices that PHMSA determined present an imminent hazard to the public safety. In effect, this action immediately orders the removal from service of more than 55,000 two-piece fully wrapped fiber composite cylinders. These cylinders are used largely in liquefied petroleum gas service.

Keystone RV Company is recalling 2,336 model year 2013 Bullet and Passport trailers manufactured Oct. 1, 2012, through March 5, 2013. The mounting fasteners for the stabilizer jacks may fail causing the jack to become loose and separate from the vehicle.

If the fasteners fail and the jack separates from the vehicle, it would become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will replace the mounting fasteners. The recall is expected to begin in Aug. 2013. Owners may contact Keystone Customer Service by calling 1.866.425.4369. Keystone's recall number is 13-196.

It seems we won't have to worry about any new recalls any time soon. The NHTSA is closed due to the government shutdown.
