Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2016-2017 Venetian and Tuscany motorhomes equipped with Cummins ISL engines. The vehicles, built on a Freightliner chassis, have a power steering hose that may be routed incorrectly, and, as a result, the hose may rub against the power stud on the starter motor, possibly causing electrical arcing and a power steering fluid leak.
Electrical arcing in the presence of leaking power fluid can increase the risk of fire.
Daimler Trucks (DTNA), the manufacturer of the Freightliner chassis, has notified the motorhome owners, and DTNA dealers will reroute the high pressure power steering hose to provide adequate clearance from the starter stud, free of charge. The recall began on December 27, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 or Thor customer service at 1-877-500-1020. Thor’s number for this recall is FL727A.
