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.
