Propane regulator recall

I received notice from Heartland the the propane regulator on my trailer may be part of a safety recall. I have read on another rv manufactures website that only certain regulator date codes were actually part of the recall. I contacted Heartland to verify the date code information and heartland gave me a non response.
Does anyone have information on this recall beyond the Heartland mail out notice? Its a pain in the you know what to try to get an appointment at the dealership in which I bought the trailer, and if this recall doesn't apply to my trailer it would be nice to not have to deal with the dealership. Thanks

The regulator may fail, causing an increase in propane pressure.
Increased propane pressure can enlarge the flames in gas appliances, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do​

Dealers will replace the regulator and test the propane system for leaks free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed August 4, 2021.
Owners may contact Heartland customer service at (877) 262-8032.
 
My regulator came with this flaw from the beginning and hardly let the heater run at all the pressure was so high. I replaced it myself right away, it’s not worth dealing with the appointments to tow in for this, just buy and swap.
