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

  • Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2020-2021 Heartland Cyclone and 2019-2021 Road Warrior Toy Hauler recreational trailers. The transfer switch wire securement lugs may have been improperly tightened during production, causing the wires to come loose. Loose wires can cause electrical arcing, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,783 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • HME Inc. is recalling certain 2019 Ram 5500 emergency vehicles. The engine calibration software may not warn about low oil volume. Low oil can damage the engine, causing an oil leak or a punctured engine block, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA did not say how many vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • HME Inc., is recalling certain 2018 Ram 5500 emergency vehicles. The flanged wheel lug nuts may have been over-tightened during service. An over-tightened lug nut may cause the wheel stud to break, resulting in wheel separation and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA did not say how many vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Newmar Corporation is recalling certain 2020-2021 Essex, 2020-2022 King Aire and London Aire motorhomes. A machining defect may cause pressure to build in the power steering pump and break the shaft seal, resulting in a loss of power steering assist. A loss of power steering assist increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 38 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2017 Challenger, Miramar, and Outlaw motorhomes. The external compartment outer door skin may separate from the motorhome during transit. A door skin that separates during transit can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 424 vehicles are affected by the recall.
