Monaco is recalling 202 model year 2006 Monarch SE, 2009 Riptide, MY
2006 Holiday Rambler Admiral SE, 2007-2009 Arista, 2007-2009 Safari
Passage, 2006 Simba, Trek Gas, and 2006-2007 R-Vision Trail-Lite and
Trail-Aire motorhomes built on Workhorse chassis. The castle nut that
retains the steering drag link to the pitman arm may have been
improperly torqued during assembly. The improper torque may have damaged
the castle nut and compromised the integrity of the connection. If the
drag link were to separate from the pitman arm, the driver would not
have directional control of the vehicle possibly causing a crash. Monaco
is working with Workhorse to replace and properly tighten the castle
nut that retains the steering drag link to the pitman arm. Owners may
contact Workhorse at 1-877-946-7731 or Monaco at 1-800-685-6545. 08V-578

Newmar is recalling 913 model year 2007-2009 All Star ME, Dutch
Star DP, 2007-2008 Kountry Star DP, 2007 Mountain Aire DP, and 2009
Dutch Aire DP and Ventana DP motorhomes built on Spartan chassis and
equipped with Putnam hitches. After some period of use, certain trailer
hitches may develop stress fractures due to sharp radii and/or tool
marking. Fractures in the suspect hitches may result in hitch
separation, potentially resulting in injury and/or property damage.
Newmar is working with Spartan who will replace the trailer hitch free
of charge. Owners may contact Spartan at 1-517-543-6400 or Newmar at
1-574-773-7791. 08V-596

Winnebago is recalling 68 model year 2008 Adventurer Limited
motorhomes. The windshield wipers may fail to operate properly.
Inoperative wipers under inclement weather conditions could cause
impaired visibility, which has the potential to result in personal
injury and/or vehicle and property damage. Dealers will inspect the
windshield wiper system and, if required, will install new wiper linkage
from the wiper motor to the pivot assemblies. The recall is expected to
begin during December 2008. Owners may contact Winnebago at
1-641-585-3535. 08V-606

Fleetwood is recalling 106 model year 2009 Icon and Pulse 24A
motorhomes. The propane hose connections may be installed in a position
that causes them to become pinched against the propane tank. This may
result in damage to the propane hose or fittings and could lead to a
propane gas leak and the potential for an explosion and/or fire. Dealers
will inspect and, if necessary, reposition the connections for the
propane hoses. Propane hoses will be inspected and replaced if damaged.
The recall is expected to begin during December 2008. Owners may contact
Fleetwood at 1-800-322-8216. 08V-620
