The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes Benz Sprinter vehicles. These vehicles may have been delivered with a version of the printed and digital operator’s manual that may be inaccurate and/or incomplete. If the operator relies on the provided owner’s manual, the information about vehicle functions and other safety relevant information may be inaccurate and/or incomplete, which could lead to improper operation of the vehicle and potentially increase the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially nine units are affected by this recall.
- Forest River is recalling certain 2018-2020 RPOD travel trailers. The sewer termination bracket may fail, causing the plumbing to drag on the ground or to detach completely. If the plumbing were to detach, it can become a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,818 units are affected by this recall.
- Forest River is recalling certain 2020-2021 XLR Boost Toy Hauler recreational vehicles. The Federal Placard and Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) label may state a lower weight than the actual weight. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 120, “Wheels and Rims-Other Than Passenger Cars.” An inaccurate weight on the Federal Placard can cause the vehicle to be overloaded, possibly causing damage to the tires and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 157 units are affected by this recall.
- McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing is recalling certain 2020 Bridgemaster Mixer vehicles. These mixer trucks do not have the position at which the pusher axles should be operated listed on the information plate. If the position in which the pusher axles should be operated is not listed, the operator may not know how the pusher axle should be positioned while the vehicle is not carrying a load, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially seven units are affected by this recall.
- Spartan Fire is recalling certain 2019-2021 Gladiator and MetroStar vehicles equipped with Weldon V-Mux Vista IV Standard LCD displays used for controlling emergency vehicle lighting and HVAC functions. These displays may experience low voltage spikes, and cause the LCD display to lock up or become nonfunctional, due to varying electrical installations. Operator of vehicle may not be able to read the LCD screen and may not be able to use buttons or both unless they reset the power. If the LCD display appears blank, emergency personnel may not have immediate access to the functions and controls operated by the LCD screen which could delay emergency operations, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 193 units are affected by this recall.
