Newmar Corporation is recalling nearly 60 model year 2015-2017 Canyon Star recreational vehicles. These vehicles have a wheelchair access door with a power door lock that may open while the vehicle is in motion if the key fob button is pressed.

If the wheelchair access door opens while the vehicle is being driven, it could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin November 26, 2016.

Newmar will notify owners, and dealers will add a relay harness to prevent the key fob button from opening the door while the vehicle is in motion.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Newmar customer service at (800) 731-8300.
