Winnebago Industries, Inc. (Winnebago) is recalling certain 2021 Revel motorhomes. These motorhomes have an auxiliary alternator belt that may wear and detach. If the auxiliary alternator belt disengages, the engine serpentine belt may also disengage causing an immediate loss of power steering control increasing the risk of crash.
Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will coordinate the inspection and proper alignment of the belt pulleys, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 9, 2020. Winnebago’s number for this recall is 162.
