Newmar Corporation is recalling 38 model year 2020-2021 Essex, and model year 2020-2022 King Aire & London Aire motorhomes.
A machining defect may cause pressure to build in the power steering pump and break the shaft seal, resulting in a loss of power steering assist.
A loss of power steering assist can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Shyft Group, on behalf of Newmar Corporation, will inspect the pump serial number and replace the power steering pump -- if necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on December 18, 2021.
Owners may contact Newmar's customer service at (800) 731-8300.
