Newmar Corporation is recalling 24 model year 2017 Ventana, Ventana VL and Dutch Star motorhomes manufactured November 1, 2015, to June 24, 2016 and built on a Freightliner Custom Chassis.
When the windshield wipers are turned off, the headlights may also turn off. Additionally, the wiper arms may stop in an incorrect location blocking the driver's view, and the wiper motor may stall when under load.
If the headlights go out or the wiper system does not operate properly, the driver's visibility may be adversely affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Newmar will notify owners, and Freightliner dealers will update the wiper software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 23, 2016.
Owners may contact Newmar Customer Service Department at 1-800-731-8300.
