Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling more than 2,000 model year 2017-2021 Freedom Elite motorhomes. A 100-amp converter breaker was incorrectly installed at the battery tray when a 70-amp breaker is required, possibly resulting in the wiring connected to the breaker overheating.
Overheated wires can increase the risk of a fire.
TMC will notify owners, and dealers will replace the converter breaker with one of the correct amperage if needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 22, 2020. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1-855-2867. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000199.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
