Newmar Corporation is recalling 510 model year 2014-2016 Dutch Star motorhomes manufactured from June 5, 2014, through October 16, 2015, and built on a Freightliner chassis.
The vehicle's steering box may have been manufactured with an incorrect spacer with insufficient height that can cause too much play, causing the connection to wear between the steering wheel and the front axle.
The steering wheel's connection to the front axle could fail resulting in a sudden loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Owners are urged not to drive their vehicles until they have been inspected.
Newmar will notify owners, and Freightliner dealers will inspect and replace the steering box if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 5, 2016.
Owners may contact Freightliner customer service at 1-800-547-0712 or Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar's number for this recall is 16V 366.
