Entegra Coach is recalling 30 model year 2015-2016 Aspire vehicles built on Daimler Trucks North America motorhome chassis due to a brake issue.

On the affected vehicles, which are equipped with a heavier, adjustable foot pedal, the brake activation signal to certain towed devices may not deactivate when the motorhome service brakes are released.

If the brake activation signal to a towed device remains active when the motorhome chassis service brakes are released, the brakes on a towed device may remain engaged, depending on brake configuration of the trailer. Additionally, following drivers may be confused by the motorhome's actions, increasing the risk of a crash.

Daimler Trucks will notify owners, and their dealers will modify the affected brake assemblies free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

For more information, owners may reach Entegra Customer Service at (800) 945-4787 or Daimler Trucks Customer Service at (800) 547-0712.
