Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Tuscany XTE motorhomes and 2016 Axis and Vegas recreational vehicles after the discovery of two different safety issues.

In the affected Tuscany XTE models, the dinette convertible table top insert may slide out of position allowing the insert to flip up if it is sat on. This can result in injury to the occupant. The potentially dangerous vehicles were manufactured from March 28, 2013, to Feb. 27, 2015.

Thor is including almost 100 motorhomes in this recall. The company has notified owners, and dealers will install an additional support bracket to slide the table insert into, preventing the insert from flipping up, free of charge.

Thor is also recalling almost 300 2016 Axis and Vegas recreational vehicles manufactured March 26, 2015, to July 6, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning control may lock on one setting, preventing the operator from changing the air flow, thereby eliminating the ability to defrost the windshield. The resultant decreased visibility could increase the risk of a crash.

Thor has notified owners, and dealers will install a jumper harness to prevent the condition, free of charge.

Both recalls began on Sept. 1, 2015.
