safety recalls-min

The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2017-2020 AT200A, AT235, AT37-G, AT40-G, AT41/48M Aerial Devices mounted on a Ford F-350, F-450 or F-550 chassis equipped with a gas engine and Chelsea 249 Power Take-Off (PTO). The PTO may leak oil onto the exhaust heat shield thermal blanket. Oil absorbed by the exhaust heat shield thermal blanket has an increased risk of a fire from being exposed to hot engine components. NHTSA says potentially 2,550 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Daimler Coaches North America is recalling certain 2018-2019 Setra S407 and 2019-2020 S417 passenger coaches. The engine compartment flap may not have sufficient welding seams on the hinges, allowing the hinge connection to fail and the engine compartment flap to detach from the coach. If the engine compartment flap detaches from the coach while it is in motion, it can become a projectile, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 55 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2021 Riverstone trailers, models RSF37MRE, RSF381FB, RSF383MB, SF383MB-W, RSF39FK, RSF38FKTH, RSF39FKTH-W, RSF39FK-W, RSF39RBFL, RSF39KFB and RSF39RKFB-W, equipped with an optional generator prep package. Incorrect transfer switch wiring may allow a voltage back feed to the power cord when plugged into shore power. A back feed to the power cord may increase the risk of property damage and/or personal injury. NHTSA says potentially 62 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2019-2020 Keystone Carbon, Cougar, Fuzion, Impact and Raptor fifth-wheel trailers equipped with a Furrion over the air (OTA) wing-style television antenna. The antenna may separate from the mounting base during transit, becoming a road hazard. If the antenna detaches from the trailer while moving it may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 8,313 vehicles are affected by this recall.
