Thousands of Winnebago, Itasca motorhomes recalled

Thousands of Winnebago, Itasca motorhomes recalled

 

The Axxess module.

The Axxess radio volume control module on more than 5,000 model year 2014-2017 Winnebago and Itasca motorhomes may affect electrical system functions, possibly causing an engine shutdown, power loss, illumination of malfunction indicator warning lights, and interfere with the restraint system. These scenarios could increase the risk of crash or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will remove the Axxess radio volume control module, free of charge. The module is no longer being installed in new models of the motorhomes.

The manufacturer has not provided a recall notification schedule. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 1-800-537-1885.

A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. Most decisions to conduct a recall and remedy a safety defect are made voluntarily by manufacturers prior to any involvement by NHTSA.

Manufacturers are required to fix the problem by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund, or in rare cases repurchasing the vehicle.

    Just brought my 2015 winnebago in for the recall on the volume control recall. What they did was remove the control for the steering wheel volume control from the steering wheel!!!
    Now the steering wheel controls no longer work!!!
    Winnebago told me they have no intention to repair it,only remove it!!!
    How is that possible that now I have a new vehicle with an option that I paid for no longer working.
    Disgraceful!!! My winnebago days are over

      Jim, I have forwarded your comment to Winnebago and requested that they comment. They may reply directly to you, if not me. If so, let us know what happens.

    Winnebago needs to make this right! You don’t just unplug something and remove basic features found for decades in cheap cars and call it fixed.
