Tire Wear, Compromised Steering Trigger Motorhome Recall from REV
The affected vehicles have a section of framework that may rub against the front passenger-side tire
An RV manufacturer has announced a recall for motorhomes due to an issue impacting the tires.
REV Recreation Group is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Holiday Rambler Endeavor (models 40DP, 40G, 40E, 40G, and 40X) and Holiday Rambler Endeavor XE (model 37PE) motorhomes. The affected vehicles have a section of framework that may rub, or cause the mud flap to rub, against the front passenger-side tire, resulting in excessive tire wear. In addition, steering capability may be adversely affected.
Excessive tire wear may result in tire failure, while restricted steering affects vehicle control. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
The company believes that about 50 motorhomes are potentially affected.
REV will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tube steel skirt framing, remove the diagonal section if present, and install additional screws to secure the mud flap. All repairs will be done free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early June 2016.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact REV customer service at (800) 509-3417.
