      The low beam headlights do not illuminate as intended in some cases

      Newmar Corporation is recalling 11 model year 2018 Essex motorhomes built on a Freightliner chassis.

      The low beam headlights do not also illuminate as intended when the high beam headlights are activated, reducing the driver's visibility.

      Reduced visibility can increase the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      Newmar will notify owners, and Daimler Trucks North America authorized service facilities will reprogram the Freightliner chassis module, free of charge.

      The recall began on February 9, 2018.
