The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has recalled 6,148 Monaco and Holiday Rambler towable RVs and 1,197 Class B motorhomes built by Canada’s Pleasure-Way Industries Ltd.

The recalled units built by Monaco Coach Corp. include model year 2000 and 2001 Monaco Medallion, Monaco Grand Medallion, Monaco Lakota and Holiday Rambler Presidential fifth-wheels. Also included in the recall are model year 1999 Holiday Rambler Imperial fifth-wheels, 1999 and 2000 model year Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite travel trailers and 1999 and 2000 model year Holiday Rambler Alumascape travel trailers and fifth-wheels.

On some of the towable units, NHTSA found a wire supplying 12-volt DC to the holding tank monitoring system display panel was installed without proper circuit protection. As a remedy, dealers are to install a 6-Amp circuit breaker on the 12-volt wire.

Concerning the Pleasure-Way motorhomes, NHTSA found the rear brake line might not have been properly installed to the rear axle. As a remedy, dealers will inspect the rear axle brake lines to make sure they are properly clipped to the rear axle.

The recall covers 1995 to 2000 model year Pleasure-Way Excel and Lexor units.
