    Forest River recalls motorhomes with possible electrical issue

    The rear marker lights, brake lights, or turn signals may not function

    Forest River is recalling 1,104 model year 2017-2018 Charleston, model year 2017-2019 Legacy, model year 2017-2020 Berkshire, model year 2017 Coachmen Cross Country, and model year 2017-2020 Sportscoach motorhomes built on certain FCCC XB and XC chassis.

    The vehicles had previously received an inspection-only remedy for an earlier recall.

    The rear mounted Power Distribution Module (PDM) may have been damaged during manufacturing, possibly resulting in the rear marker lights, brake lights, or turn signals not functioning.

    Non-functioning exterior marker lights can increase the risk of a crash.

    What to do

    Forest Rivers will notify owners, and Daimler Trucks dealers will replace the old PDM with a new one free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin September 27, 2020.

    Owners may contact DTNA customer service at (800) 745-8000. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-1203.

      Duralast brake master cylinders recalled

      Vehicles with the master cylinders may suffer braking malfunctions

      Motor Parts of America (MPA) is recalling Duralast NM4222 and NM55381 brake master cylinders.

      The parts were sold as aftermarket replacement parts for model year 2012-2017 Volkswagen Beetles, model year 2005-2018 Volkswagen Jettas and model year 2007-2010 Volkswagen Jetta GLIs.

      The crimping of the aluminum housing may be insufficient, allowing the master cylinder piston to pop out of the housing.

      If the piston pops out of the master cylinder housing, a complete loss of braking or unintended brake application can occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Owners may initially notice brake fluid leaking onto the vacuum booster, or a change in brake pedal travel and feel.

      What to do

      MPA will notify owners directing them to take the component to an AutoZone store to return the recalled master cylinder for a full refund. Exchanges for replacement master cylinders can occur after October 1, 2020.

      The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

      Owners may contact MPA customer service at (833) 758-0239 or by email at recall@motorcarparts.com.
