      Newmar recalls Dutch Star motorhomes

      The brakes on a towed device may not deactivate properly

      Newmar Corporation is recalling seven model year 2015 Dutch Star motorhomes manufactured July 24, 2014, to September 10, 2014 and built on a Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) XCM, XCR, or XCL motorhome chassis.

      In these vehicles with a heavier, adjustable, straight foot pedal, the brake activation signal to certain towed devices may not deactivate when the motorhome service brakes are released.

      If the brake activation signal to a towed device remains active, the brakes on a towed device may remain engaged depending on brake configuration of the trailer. As a result, the brakes would drag and possibly overheat potentially resulting in a fire. Additionally, following drivers may be confused by the motorhome's actions, increasing the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      Newmar will notify owners, and Freightliner dealers will modify the affected pedal assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 5, 2016.

      Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar's number for this recall is 16V 654.
