A rogue engine fan is prompting a recall from one recreational vehicle manufacturer.

Newmar Corporation is recalling certain model year 2004-2007 Essex motorhomes, and 2005-2007 London Aire motorhomes, and 2007-2008 Mountain Aire motorhomes. In the affected vehicles, the engine cooling fan may separate from the fan drive while the fan is spinning.

If the engine area is open and the cooling fan is operating and detaches, an individual located nearby may be injured.

Newmar is recalling more than 450 vehicles in connection with this defect.

The company will notify owners, and Spartan Motors dealers will replace the fan and fan drive system, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Newmar service department at (800) 731-8300 or Spartan Chassis at (800) 543-4277.
