Latest RV Recalls

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued recall
notices
for the following products related to the recreation vehicle industry:

 

  • Certain (2009-2010) Coachmen RV Prism and Freelander recreational
    vehicles built on 2008 Sprinter chassis. The engine control module may not actuate the
    EGR valve sufficiently to prevent soot accumulation, resulting in improper valve
    operation or sticking.
  • Certain (2008-2009) Forest River Inc. Charleston motorhomes
    manufactured between Aug. 16, 2007, and Sept. 23, 2008, equipped with Kongsberg
    automotive adjustable brake pedals. The adjustable brake pedal arm may loosen, allowing
    the arm to rotate around its shaft and swing in front of the accelerator pedal,
    reducing braking function.
  • Certain (2010) Winnebago Industries Inc. Sightseer D33C, Vista E30W and
    Itasca Sunova D33C and Sunstar E30W
    motorhomes manufactured from July 16,
    2009, through Jan. 14, 2010. These vehicles may have wiring from an incomplete 120-volt
    circuit that may become energized.
  • Certain (2010) Triple E Regency GT 29DB and GT28DB motorhomes
    equipped with Flexsteel easy-bed sofa for failing to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle
    Safety Standard No. 207, “Seating System.” The easy bed sofa was manufactured without a
    rollover safety locking latch.
  • Certain (2009-2010) Entegra Coach Anthem and Cornerstone
    motorhomes manufactured from March 24, 2009, through Feb. 16, 2010, built on Spartan
    chassis and equipped with pneumatic and hydraulic adjustable brake pedal assemblies
    supplied by Kongsberg Automotive. The drive pin, which secures the brake pedal arm to
    the balance assembly, may become disengaged, this may cause a reduction in vehicle
    braking and/or cause the brake pedal to move out of position and interfere with
    throttle pedal function.
  • Certain (2008-2010) Prevost motorcoaches fitted with Ricon public
    use lifts. The restraint belt on these lifts was designed to prevent the lift from
    moving, unless the tongue of the belt is fully engaged and latched in the buckle. Ricon
    has discovered, however, that it is possible for the operator to insert the belt tongue
    into the buckle without fully engaging the latching mechanism.
  • Certain (2008-2009) Winnebago Industries Inc. motorhomes fitted
    with Ricon public use lifts. The restraint belt on these lifts was designed to prevent
    the lift from moving, unless the tongue of the belt is fully engaged and latched in the
    buckle. Ricon has discovered, however, that it is possible for the operator to insert
    the belt tongue into the buckle without fully engaging the latching mechanism.
