OTHER EQUIPMENT AND TIRES

Nothing significant to report this month.


Please note: This is only a list of recalls we feel may be of interest to the RVing community. There may be other recalls which may affect you — please make it a point to visit appropriate government sources for more information.


What is a recall?
When a manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a car or item of motor vehicle equipment creates an unreasonable risk to safety or fails to meet minimum safety standards, the manufacturer is required to fix that car or equipment at no cost to the consumer. That can be done by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund (for equipment) or, in rare cases, repurchasing the car.

What should I do if my vehicle is included in this recall?
If your vehicle is included in this recall, it is very important that you get it fixed as soon as possible given the potential danger to you and your passengers if it is not addressed. You should receive a separate letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, notifying you of the recall and explaining when the remedy will be available, whom to contact to repair your vehicle or equipment, and to remind you that the repair will be done at no charge to you. If you believe your vehicle is included in the recall, but you do not receive a letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, please call NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or contact your vehicle manufacturer or dealership.

Thank you for your attention to this important safety matter and for your commitment to helping save lives on America’s roadways.

Here are some useful websites regarding recalls:
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is the agency which handles vehicle recalls.
• Here is a link to the main NHTSA website, which covers everything they do.
• Here’s a link to where you can enter your vehicle’s VIN to see if it has ever been involved in a recall.
• Here is the link if you ever want to file a vehicle safety complaint.

The recall of Ford F53 chassis with 22.5 wheels is noted . Why is this not on Thor’s recall for all their coaches with F53 chassis. ie, Challenger, Outlaw and others?

I don’t normally read the recalls because my motor home is a 2007, and all the recalls are for newer models. But I bought it used, and suppose the first owner didn’t get a recall fixed. How can I find out if there were any recalls of that year and model???

How do they keep on getting away from screwing us? I have a Forest River 2017 class A 34 qs & got my share of it. What a bunch of crap to find out that the weight is MUCH more that the name plate indicated. I see that a lot, especially from Forest River, looks like they have it their way & we have to suffer the consequences!

The ONLY way we can FORCE the RV industry to change their ways is to stop buying their Junk! When the information gets out about how these companies operate and how they treat their customers, PEOPLE might just start to wake up! Instead, the SHEEPLE in America will continue Fattening the Bank Accounts of the RV Industry.

Mfrs. should offer an upgraded replacement as an option (“at cost” ….no markups). These units were purchased based on misleading (false) information.

I like the Subaru solution: “vehicle will be replaced free of charge”.

Love the recalls involving incorrect weight capacities from various manufacturers. Amazing how the “fix” is to slap a new sticker on the trailer reducing the customers cargo capacity from several hundred pounds and in one recall reported above, over a thousand pounds. The result being a significant reducution in the ability to even pack an extra pair of socks without being overweight. Talk about a bait and switch!

The recall should be to correct the weight capacity to what the customer expected when they bought the trailer

The best one is the slide in truck camper that actually weighs over 800 lbs more than the sticker says. A customer buys that for their truck because of the sticker then finds out they have to buy a new truck because the RV dealer isn’t going to refund the money.
