According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
Tiffin is recalling certain recreational vehicles equipped with Norcold refrigerators. A fatigue failure in the section of the cooling unit which contains the refrigerant could allow the liquid solution to slowly leak. Extended operation of a leaking cooling unit could lead to a fire from gas which might escape. Tiffin is working with Norcold to repair these refrigerators. Norcold will provide thermal switch kits to owners along with the necessary forms and instructions. Owners may contact Norcold at 1-800-767-9101 or Tiffin at 1-256-356-8661.
But that’s not all….
Gulf Stream is recalling 99 MY 2006-2007 Crescendo, Yellowstone, Friendship and Tourmaster motor home chassis, and Newmar is recalling 274 MY 2005 Kountry Star Diesel Pusher, Northern Star Diesel Pusher, and MY 2006 Ventana Diesel Pusher motor homes built on Freightliner chassis. Specific inline power steering filters may become plugged, resulting in hose separation from the filter or steering gear fitting. This hose separation would result in loss of steering fluid and loss of power steering assist. Loss of power steering assist would effectively increase the steering effort required and could lead to loss of vehicle control. Newmar is working with Daimler Trucks to have the filters replaced with a larger filter. Owners may contact Daimler Trucks at 1-800-547-0712, Gulf Stream at 1-574-773-7761, or Newmar at 1-574-773-7791.
And there’s more…
Cavalier, Conquest, Crescendo, Emerald Bay, Endura, Friendship, Gulf Breeze, G-Force, Independence, Innsbruck, Kahuna Bay, Kingsport, Mako, Mini, Palm Breeze, Prairie Schooner, Scenic Cruiser, Seahawk, Sedona, Side Kick, Side Track, Stream-Lite, Sun Sport, Sun Voyager, Tourmaster, Track & Trail, Trailmaster, Ultra, Wide Open, and Yellowstone motor homes, fifth wheel and travel trailers equipped with a two-door refrigerator manufactured by the Dometic Corporation. The refrigerator may have a defect in the boiler tube. Pressurized coolant solution could be released into an area where an ignition source (gas flame) is present. Release of coolant under certain conditions could ignite and result in a fire. Gulf Stream is working with Dometic in order to repair these refrigerators (please see 08E032). Dometic will repair these refrigerators by installing a secondary burn housing, a thermal fuse, and a melt fuse free of charge. Dometic has retained Stericycle Inc. to manage this campaign. Stericycle will assist the owner in locating dealerships or service centers and will provide assistance with scheduling of appointments. Owners may contact Dometic/Stericycle at 1-888-446-5157 or Gulf Stream at 1-574-773-7761.
