Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling 566 model year 2020 Daybreak, Four Winds, Delano, Gemini, Quantum, Tiburon, Chateau Citation, Compass, Chateau, Siesta, Freedom Elite and Synergy motorhomes built on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis [platform 907 (VS30)]with automatic transmissions.

The owner's manual does not correctly specify the certain conditions under which the automatic parking function (Auto-P) operates.

If an operator were to rely on the Auto-P function as described in the Operator's Manual, the possibility of a vehicle rollaway or unintended vehicle movement cannot be ruled out which could increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

TMC will notify owners, and a Mercedes Benz dealer will supplement the Operator's Manual with a correct description of the Auto-P function equipped in the vehicle.

This recall is expected to begin July 26, 2020.

Owners may contact TMC customer service at (877) 855-2867. TMC's number for this recall is RC000190.
