Newmar RV recalls some motorhomes. Power steering could fail

Newmar Corporation (Newmar) is recalling certain 2020-2021 Essex, and 2020-2022 King Aire and London Aire motorhomes. A machining defect may cause pressure to build in the power steering pump and break the shaft seal, resulting in a loss of power steering assist to the RV.

A loss of power steering assist increases the risk of a crash and injury.

On behalf of Newmar Corporation, Shyft Group will inspect the pump serial number, and replace the power steering pump if necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on December 18, 2021. Owners may contact Newmar’s customer service at 1-800-731-8300.

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

Seen this before! Newmar pushes the problem to their supplier instead of quickly taking care of their problem. Will these owners have to get to Shyft Group at their own expense like we other Newmar owners that have had problems with original parts of our coaches?? (We have been referred for fiberglass shower, fans, toilet, windows, entrance stairs) Newmar should stand behind what they sell and not require their customers, who have no clout with the suppliers, to, at the customers time and expense, get fixes.
