Another prominent recreational vehicle manufacturer is taking a line of its vehicles off the road.

Winnebago Industries, Inc., of Forest City, IA, is recalling certain model year 2012-2016 Winnebago Era recreational vehicles, manufactured between Nov. 11, 2010, and July 20, 2015. The certification label affixed to the vehicles provide an incorrect front tire inflation pressure. Accordingly, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

Incorrect tire pressure information could cause an owner or operator to under or over inflate the tires, increasing the risk of a tire failure and a crash. About 1,700 recreational vehicles are included in this recall.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will provide new certification labels with the correct tire inflation pressure specifications, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at (641) 585-3535 for additional information.
