Forest River is recalling 138 model year 2014-2016 Charleston vehicles manufactured September 16, 2013, to December 10, 2015 and assembled on a Freightliner chassis built by Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA).
The throttle pedal position sensor on the vehicles may not return to zero, causing the engine brake to suddenly not activate as expected, reducing the vehicle's deceleration ability.
A sudden loss of an engine brake without warning on a motorhome may lead to a reduced brake capacity, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River will notify owners, and Daimler Trucks North America dealers will replace the pedal, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 19, 2016.
Owners may contact Daimler Trucks Customer Service Department at 1-800-547-0712 or by E-mail at DTNA.Warranty.Campaigns@Daimler.com. Forest River's number for this recall is 40-06202016-0214.
