Faulty Lippert Electric Steps Lead to Recall of Motorhomes from Entegra
The electric steps leading into Entegra Coach motorhomes may pose a danger to consumers.
The recreational vehicle manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2008 and 2010-2011 Aspire and Anthem, 2008 and 2010 Cornerstone, 2008 Emblem and Alante, and 2009-2011 Insignia motorhomes. The affected vehicles are equipped with certain Lippert-brand Coachstep Double Electric Steps. These steps use a bolt to attach the fan gear assembly to the steps. This bolt may fracture allowing the fan gear to disengage from the steps. As a result, the steps may not remain in the expected position and may become unstable.
Unstable entry and exit steps increase the risk of injury.
Entegra is including about 270 vehicles in this recall.
Entegra will notify owners, and dealers will install a retainer bracket on the double step assemblies. On the trip step assemblies, the Coachstep Assembly will be replaced and a retainer bracket will be installed. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
