Newmar recalls motorhomes for potential steering problem

Newmar Corporation (Newmar) is recalling certain 2020-2022 Dutch Star, King Aire, Essex, London Aire, and Mountain Aire motorhomes. The steering gear mounting bolts may become loose and back out, resulting in difficulty steering.

Difficulty steering, or the inability to steer in both directions, can increase the risk of a crash.

On behalf of Newmar, Shyft Group Inc. will coordinate the recall repair and notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and washers, free of charge. The recall is expected to began April 19, 2021. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar’s number for this recall is 21V 041.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

We had this problem (steering gear mounting bolts) with our 2016 Ventana LE 4040 during 2017-2018 and it took 6 months and 7000 miles before our Newmar Dealer diagnosed it properly. Imagine how it would have been if the bolts had come out while driving or my cost if I replaced the steering tires that they thought might be the cause. Sounds like: If you own a Freightliner chassis you better check the mounting bolts on your steering box.
