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

  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2022 DC & DM Series Digger Derrick vehicles. During production, an incorrect bolt may have been used to attach the derrick rotation bearing. An incorrect bolt in the derrick rotation bearing may cause the adjacent bolts to be overloaded during operation, which could cause separation of the rotation bearing, and increase the risk of an injury. NHTSA says potentially 45 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2022 East to West Entrada 24FM Class C Motorhomes. The certification label incorrectly states there are 6 belted seating positions, when there are only 4 belted seating positions. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 120, "Wheels and Rims-Other than Passenger Cars." Incorrect belted seating position information may result in unbelted passengers, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says potentially 36 units are affected by the recall.
  • Paccar is recalling certain 2022-2023 Peterbilt 579 and 2023 Kenworth T680 vehicles. Incorrect software in the battery electric heavy duty electronic stability control program may underestimate the mass of the vehicle. As such, these vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 136, "Electronic Stability Control Systems on Heavy Vehicles." An incorrect estimate of the vehicle mass can reduce the performance of the stability control system and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 46 units are affected by the recall.
