NHTSA Recalls: December 4, 2017

The following recalls have been issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

Entegra Coach is recalling certain 2016-2018 Aspire, Anthem, Cornerstone and Insignia motorhomes. The vehicles have lights that do not include reflectors and the vehicle does not have separate reflectors. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” Without the required reflectors, the motorhome may be less visible to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. Entegra will notify owners, and dealers will install compliant reflectors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2017. Owners may contact Entegra customer service at 800-945-4787. Entegra’s number for this recall is 9903363.

These water pumps may leak coolant. The leaking water pump can increase the risk of a fire. Forest River will notify owners and Chrysler/RAM dealers will replace the water pumps, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 574-262-3474 extension 212, or Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403.

If the circuit breaker trips there is an increased risk of a crash. Newell will notify owners and will replace the 100-amp breaker with a 120-amp breaker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 5, 2017. Owners may contact Newell customer service at 888-363-9355.

REV Recreation Group is recalling certain 2017-2018 Fleetwood Jamboree and Holiday Rambler Vesta motorhomes. The hydraulic leveling system lines may not be properly secured, allowing them to contact the axle or the chassis drive train components, possibly resulting in a hydraulic fluid leak.

REV will notify owners, and dealers will secure the hydraulic lines with insulated clamps as necessary, replacing any damaged hydraulic lines, free of charge.

Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2018 Ace, Axis, Hurricane, Windsport and Vegas motorhomes. The wiring for the trailer lights may have been inserted into the wrong locations of the trailer lighting socket causing the trailer lights to not function properly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” If the trailer lights do not function as intended, it can increase the risk of a crash.
