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

  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2022-2023 Western Star 49X and 47X vehicles. The u-joint pinch bolt on the steering shaft may detach, which can cause a loss of steering control. A loss of steering control can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 202 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2022-2023 Forest River Inc. Impression Fifth Wheel recreational vehicles. These vehicles were manufactured without a secondary emergency exit. A missing secondary exit could result in occupants becoming trapped inside during an emergency, increasing their risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 49 units are affected by the recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2022 F-150 Raptor Series vehicles equipped with 37-in., tires. The lug nuts on the wheels may have been incorrectly tightened. Incorrectly tightened wheel lug nuts can loosen and result in wheel separation from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,519 units are affected by the recall.
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2023 Dutchmen Aspen Trail, Coleman, and Kodiak travel trailers. The switch for the electric stabilizer jacks may not be waterproof from the back side of the switch, which can result in an electrical short. An electrical short can cause the stabilizer jacks to extend during transit, increasing the risk of crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 536 units are affected by the recall.
  • Shyft Group is recalling certain 2018-2019 Utilimaster Work Trucks. The welds may be missing or cracked on certain areas of the truck's body mount frame. Missing or cracked welds may cause the cargo body to shift, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,139 units are affected by the recall.
