Newmar Corporation is recalling 114 model year 2012-2017 Canyon Star motor homes manufactured September 7, 2011, to September 6, 2016, and equipped with wheelchair lifts.
Incorrect bolts may have been used to install the wheelchair lift base and may break unexpectedly, allowing the lift to move. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 404, "Platform Lift Installations."
Unintentional movement of the wheelchair lift can cause injury to the lift occupant and/or the lift operator.
What to do
Newmar will notify owners, and Newmar service facilities will replace the wheelchair lift base mounting bolts, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 12, 2016. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300.
