Newmar recalls motorhomes for loose bolts issue

Newmar Corporation is recalling certain 2017-2019 Newmar Ventana LE and Ventana motorhomes, 2018 Mountain Aire and Essex motorhomes, and 2017-2018 London Aire motorhomes. The brake caliper mounting bolts on the vehicles may be insufficiently tightened, allowing the bolts to loosen.

If the brake caliper mounting bolts loosen, braking performance many be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash

Newmar will notify owners, and authorized Daimler Trucks service centers will inspect the caliper mounting bolts and tighten them to the proper specification, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 1, 2018. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar’s number for this recall is 18V-353

I guess the one that tickles my funny bone is KZRV and routing an LP line thru the wheel well. Yesterday, I couldn’t spell engineer, today I are an enganeer. As I post this, there is no known cure for stupid!

I own a Newmar Mountain Aire so I was interested in what David Ward had to say, but he is complaining about a 2017 Keystone Bullet. I am appalled at the problems he is reporting, and wish there was some way I could help him resolve them, but he isn’t complaining about a Newmar as the Link stated…

My wife & I own a 2017 keystone bullet, hence the roof leak, shower door won’t open, cabinet doors open for no reason at all, a water pump loud enough to wake a nieghbor.
These are just a few that we just took care of as the quality is just poor. Hard to believe ( made in America )
Very little recalls….Again when most items the manufacturer will not honor and just plane shrug it off

Just looking at the recalls above, this really hits home the lack of inspection and quality control.
Most of these items should have been discovered through inspection at the manufacturer first, and the dealer second.
There should have been no need for costly (and embarrassing) recalls.
Do they not realize it would be cheaper to do it right in the first place?
