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

  • Braun Ambulances is recalling certain 2023-2024 Chief XL I, Chief XL III, Express Plus I, Express III, and Liberty I vehicles. In the event of a short circuit or wiring failure, the firmware in the node may fail to shut off the output pin, resulting in overloaded electrical circuits. Overloaded electrical circuits can overheat, increasing the risk of fire. NHTSA says potentially 29 units are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2024 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter vehicles. Due to a software error in the electronic stability program (ESP), the force required to stop the vehicle may increase, possibly requiring an extended distance to stop. Extended stopping distance can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 184 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2011, 2016-2019, 2021-2024 Rockport Work Trucks. The rear liftgate may have been installed without a U-bolt on the driver and passenger side, which can allow the liftgate to fall to the ground when loaded. A liftgate that falls unexpectedly increases the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 54 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Jayco is recalling certain 2023-2025 Entegra Aspire Class A motorhomes. The camera control module may have been installed upside down and flush to the floor, which can allow it to overheat and prevent the camera image from displaying. A camera image that does not display decreases the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 137 units are affected by the recall.
  • Jayco is recalling certain Jayco Swift, Swift LI, Entegra Coach Ethos, and Ethos LI motorhomes. The driver seat belt warning light and audible chime may not activate as intended. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS)  number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." A malfunctioning seat belt warning system can result in improper seat belt use, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says potentially 33 units are affected by the recall.
  • Winnebago Industries is recalling certain 2017-2025 Revel, 2020-2025 Navion, Porto, View, Vita, 2022-2023 Adventure Van, and 2024-2025 Ekko motorhomes. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) wires can be caught in the seat mechanism when the driver or passenger seats are adjusted. Damaged wires can prevent air bags from deploying in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 15,572 units are affected by the recall.
