Dutchmen Manufacturing Co. and Monaco Coach Corp. recently issued recall notices for some products, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports.
The Dutchmen recall potentially involves certain Ultralite trailers manufactured at the company’s Syracuse, Ind., Aero plant by Dutchmen Mfg. Inc. Aero dealers should be making the repairs.
On certain 2000 to 2004 units equipped with Suburban furnaces, the exhaust vent may not be present, according to NHTSA. Dutchmen dealers will install vents on those units that don’t have them.
The Monaco recall potentially involves 2,099 Holiday Rambler Ambassador, Holiday Rambler Neptune, Monaco Knight, Safari Cheetah, Monaco Socialite and Safari Sahara motorhomes.
The recall involves 2002 through 2004 Ambassador and Knight units, 2002 and 2003 Neptune units, 2003 and 2004 Cheetah units, 2002 Socialite and 2004 Sahara units.
On certain recalled units, the I-beam leaf imitator in the front axle suspension could crack or break because of inadequate welding, the NHTSA reports. I-beams on the front axle and the bracket on the rear axle could also crack and break.
Dealers will replace the original I-beam and weld stiffeners from the bracket to the center differential of the real axle housing, according to NHTSA.
