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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017-2023 Freightliner Cascadia, 2020-2022 Freightliner Business Class M2, 2021 Freightliner 108SD, and 2022 Freightliner 114SD, and 2020-2023 Western Star 49X, 2021-2023 Western Star 47X, and 2021-2022 Western Star 57X vehicles. The brake modulator valves on the front axle may corrode and cause the vehicle to pull to the affected side during an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) braking event. Brakes that pull to one side during an ACC braking event may cause a sudden change in vehicle direction, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 218,147 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2020-2021 Shasta Phoenix, Coachmen Brookstone, and 2019-2022 Coachmen Chaparral, and Chaparral Lite fifth wheels. The floating cross-member may not be installed correctly and fail to retain the holding tanks, causing the holding tanks to become dislodged. A tank that becomes dislodged during transit increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,018 units are affected by the recall.
  • Pierce Manufacturing is recalling certain 2010-2022 Pierce Velocity, Enforcer, Arrow XT, Quantum, and Dash CF fire trucks. Stokes basket mounting brackets may be insufficiently welded. The left and/or right brackets can fail, allowing the stokes basket to fall and increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 299 units are affected by the recall.
  • Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2022-2023 Allegro Bay, Breeze, Phaeton, Red 360, 2023 Allegro and Red 340 motorhomes. The fitting on the non-leaching hose connected to the LPG regulator may leak at the swivel joint. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 295 units are affected by the recall.
