The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Big Tex Trailer Manufacturing is recalling certain 2003-2022 16GN trailers. The spare tire mount allows the spare tire to vibrate, which can cause the joint between the spare tire mount and the trailer to fatigue and eventually fail. Spare tire mount failure can allow the spare tire to detach from the trailer and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,724 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2014-22 Thomas Built Buses HDX and EFX school buses equipped with 39-inch S3C seat frames and 3-point flex seatbelts. The passenger seat frames may crack and rotate from fatigue. Cracked passenger seat frames may not adequately secure passengers in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 4,344 units are affected by the recall.
- Prevost Car is recalling certain 2021-2023 X3-45 commuter buses. The retention pin securing the passenger seat recline mechanism could fail, causing the mechanism to collapse, and result in a loose backrest. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages." During a crash, the loose backrest and the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of an injury. NHTSA says potentially 168 units are affected by the recall.
- Prevost Car is recalling certain 2021 X3-45 commuter buses. One bolt that secures the rear bench seat frame to the body of the vehicle was not installed during the manufacturing process. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages." During a crash, the rear seats could separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of an injury. NHTSA says potentially 30 units are affected by the recall.
- Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2021-2023 Allegro, Red 340, 2021-2022 Phaeton, Breeze, Allegro Red 360, and 2022 Bay motorhomes. The output line on the LPG tanks may not connect properly to the service valve, which can cause a propane leak. A propane leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,323 units are affected by the recall.
- Van Hool NV is recalling certain 2021 TDX25 motorcoaches. The front axle module welds may crack, possibly causing the front axle to fail and resulting in a loss of vehicle steering control. A loss of steering control can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 68 units are affected by the recall.
- Winnebago Industries is recalling certain 2021-2022 Inspire motorhomes. The support underneath the step well cover may be insufficient. An insufficient support underneath the step well cover can allow the step to collapse when stepped on, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 33 units are affected by the recall.
