Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Aria, and 2019 Palazzo motorhomes built on a Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) chassis equipped with Detroit Axle axles. The affected vehicles may have loose steering and tie rod arm bolts.
Loose steering and tie rod arm bolts can cause separation of the tie rod arm from the front wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
Thor has notified owners, and DTNA dealers will inspect the steering arm and tie rod arm bolts to make sure that they are properly tightened, installing new fasteners as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on March 15, 2019. Owners may contact Daimler Trucks North America at 1-800-547-0712 to locate a Qualified Service Center or may contact TMC customer service at 1-877-855-2867.
