The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Altec Industries is recalling certain 2004-2023 DL42 and DL45 Digger Derricks. The incorrect hydraulic load holding valve may have been installed, which can cause the winch to lower uncontrollably and the load to fall. An uncontrolled load falling increases the risk of injury to personnel or others nearby. NHTSA says potentially 53 units are affected by the recall.
- Forest River is recalling certain 2024 East to West Tandara and Blackthorn fifth wheels. The rear ladder may not be anchored properly in the rear wall, which can allow the ladder to detach. A ladder that detaches can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 46 units are affected by the recall.
- Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2016-2024 Allegro Bus, and 2017-2024 Zephyr motorhomes. The 240-Volt induction cooktop may not be grounded, which can create an electrical shock hazard if the wires short-circuit. An electrical shock can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 1,188 units are affected by the recall.
- Wabash National Corporation is recalling certain 2009-2024 dry van trailers equipped with a rail-style lift gate. Please see the recall report for a complete list of models. The location of the rear impact guard is too far forward from the rear of the trailer, reducing impact protection. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 224, "Rear Impact Protection." In the event of a rear impact crash, the rear impact guard may not sufficiently protect light duty vehicles, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 3,448 units are affected by the recall.
- Winnebago Industries is recalling certain 2022 Ekko, 2020-2022 Minnie Winnie, Spirit, 2020-2022 View, Navion, and 2020-2021 Vita, and Porto motorhomes. An incorrect hitch label was installed, which can lead to overloading of the vehicle. An overloaded vehicle can cause a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,369 units are affected by the recall.
