Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling 487 model year 2014-2016 Tuscany motorhomes manufactured February 28, 2013, to August 31, 2015.
The throttle pedal position sensor on the affected 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
TMC will notify owners, and dealers for Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), manufacturer of the motorhome chassis, will replace the throttle pedal, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1-877-500-1020 or Daimler Warranty Campaign Department at 1-800-547-0712 and by email at DTNA.Warranty.Campaigns@Daimler.com. TMC's number for this recall is RC000119.
