A host of RV recalls were announced Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, including two from Tiffin Motorhomes.

Tiffin is recalling certain model year 2017 Allegro Open Roads vehicles manufactured June 7, 2016, to Aug. 15, 2016. The affected vehicles have a driver-side wiper arm that may sweep off of the edge of the windshield, when trying to return, the wiper arm may break.

A broken windshield wiper may reduce the driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver-side wiper pivot shaft and extending linkage, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661. Tiffin’s number for this recall is TIF-102.

Tiffin also is recalling certain model year 2017 Allegro Bus motorhomes manufactured April 12, 2016, to June 21, 2016. Due to insufficient holding power of the mirror arm swivel mechanism, the passenger side mirror could move while the vehicle is in motion.

If the mirror does not stay in position, it can reduce the driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will install a retrofit kit to secure the passenger mirror swivel arm mechanism, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256- 356-8661. Tiffin’s number for this recall is TIF-103.

 

Forest River is recalling certain model year 2017 Coachmen Viking trailers manufactured May 31, 2016, to Aug. 23, 2016. The affected vehicles may be missing wire clip that retains the gas lift roof struts to the mounting bracket.

Without the wire retaining clip, the roof lifting strut could detach from the mounting bracket, allowing one side of the roof to drop down quickly, increasing the risk of injury.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a wire clip to secure the strut, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 31. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-269-467-8281. Forest River’s number for this recall is 120-08302016-0240.

In the event of a waste water backup, a submerged showerhead may syphon the waste water, possibly contaminating the fresh water supply, increasing the risk of injury.

Triple E will notify owners, and dealers will install two guide rings to prevent the shower head from lowering into the shower pan or sink basin, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2016. Owners may contact Triple E customer service at 1-877-992-9906. Triple E’s number for this recall is CA #8368-1.
