The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Autocar is recalling certain 2018-2021 Xpeditor trucks with a right-hand drive cab configuration equipped with a park brake valve (button) located to the right of the steering wheel. The parking brake synchronization valve plumbing may be improperly assembled, causing the parking brake to apply unexpectedly without warning. Unexpected parking brake application can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,086 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2021 Vision and All American buses and school buses. The nut that secures the steering wheel to the steering shaft may not have been properly tightened. An improperly tightened steering wheel could detach, resulting in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 297 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2021 Saf-T-Liner C2 School Buses. The adjustable brake pedal arm may rotate from its original location due to an incorrect fit between the pedal adjustment tube and the upper brake arm casting. A brake pedal that rotates out of position increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 149 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. The affected Sprinter vehicles from platform 907 (VS30) might have an open port on the fuel delivery module (fuel pump). An open port on the fuel pump module may result in fuel leaking onto the roadway, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 46 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2020-2021 Daybreak 23DB, 2018-2021 Four Winds 23U, and 2018-2021 Chateau 23U motorhomes. Bolts of the wrong size were used to secure the barrel chair pedestals, allowing the pedestal to separate from the floor in the event of a crash. As such, these motorhomes fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 207, “Seating Systems” and number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.” If the pedestal were to separate from the floor during a crash, the seat belt anchorages may fail, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 248 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2019-2020 Tiffin Bus and 2018-2020 Zephyr motorhomes. The windshield wipers may not work due to the control module being improperly wired. The wipers may stop working during inclement weather, causing limited visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 643 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Winnebago Towable is recalling certain 2019-2020 Micro Minnie 5 travel trailers. An emergency exit window was not installed in the bedroom. If occupants do not have access to the entry door, there is no alternate means of escape provided which may result in serious injury or death. NHTSA says potentially 267 vehicles are affected by this recall.
