Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling certain 2010-2011 Four Winds Montecito 38D, 38E, 40J, 42B, 42C motorhomes equipped with an Iota ITS-50R transfer switch. The transfer switch may experience a heat-related failure due to being exposed to high electrical loads when used in higher ambient temperatures.
If the transfer switch continues to be used, it can increase the risk of a fire, which can lead to injury or worse.
Thor Motor Coach will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Iota ITS-50R transfer switch with a different brand of switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 3, 2021. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1-877-855-2867. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000205.
