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

  • Alliance RV is recalling certain 2022 Valor (36V11, 37V13, 40V13, 41V15, 42V13, 43V13); Avenue (30RLS, 31BHS, 32RLS, 33RKS, 36BRM) and Paradigm (295MK, 310RL, 340RL, 370FB, 372RK, 382RK, 385FL, 390MP, 365RD) recreational trailers. The quick disconnect fittings in the LP gas system may be cracked, causing a gas leak. A gas leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 4,224 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Autocar is recalling certain 2019-2021 Xpeditor vehicles. The hazard lights will not function when the ignition is off. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." Inoperable hazard lights increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 908 units are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2019-2023 Thomas Built Bus HDX school buses. The positive battery cable may be routed improperly, allowing it to chafe against the transmission oil cooler hoses, which can cause an electrical short circuit. An electrical short circuit can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 2,943 units are affected by the recall.
  • DTNA is recalling certain 2019-2023 Thomas Built Bus HDX commercial buses. The positive battery cable may be routed improperly, allowing it to chafe against the transmission oil cooler hoses, which can cause an electrical short circuit. An electrical short circuit can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 138 units are affected by the recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2020 Super Duty F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 vehicles equipped with 6.7L diesel engines. A washer within the vehicle's transmission can disintegrate, causing metallic debris to become lodged in the 'Park' mechanism. Debris lodged within the 'Park' mechanism may prevent the vehicle from achieving or holding 'Park,' increasing the risk of a vehicle rollaway and a crash. NHTSA says potentially 23,165 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2021-2022 Allegro motorhomes. The slide-room may extend out 6 to 8 in., while parked or possibly while moving, due to defective seals in the hydraulic cylinders. A slide-room that were to extend unintentionally during transit can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 656 units are affected by the recall.
  • Triple E Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2021-2022 Wonder W24RL recreational vehicles. The weight decal installed on the front driver-side baggage compartment door states an incorrect weight of 500 lb., which exceeds the weight limit for the storage compartment. Overloading the storage compartment can allow items to fall onto the roadway, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 119 units are affected by the recall.
