Tiffin recalls motorhomes: steering could fail


Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc. (Tiffin) is recalling 154 model year 2017 Allegro Breeze motorhomes. The ball joints on the independent front suspension (IFS) modules can loosen and separate, leading to a partial loss of steering.

If loose ball joints are not detected, they may eventually separate from their mating part, which could result in a loss of steering control. This increases the possibility of a crash.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, clean and secure the ball joint free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661. Tiffin’s number for this recall is TIF-108.

    I disagree that we don’t need public campgrounds anymore. Although there are a number of folks who have rv’s equipped with bathrooms, many of them have wet baths or very small tanks. Since they like the natural settings of public parks and are small enough to be able to fit in most of the sites, why shouldn’t they be able to use public bathrooms and be able to extend their stay? Also, in my travels I still see folks who camp either in pop-ups or tents. What are they to do if public campgrounds disappear? Many of them camp this way because they want to,but many would not be able to camp at all if not in tents, pop-ups or very small trailers. I do agree that there should be more campgrounds than there are. I would also like to see more sites in public campgrounds that can accommodate larger rvs. But even though I drive a 40 ft self contained motorhome, I think we still need the public campgrounds that we do have, and would like to see more developed rather than closed down.

      My stock reply. Too many comments to write individual replies. But I will say that you missed my point:

      In my essay, I was just saying we don’t need public campgrounds because all RVs, even little 12-foot RVs have toilets, which was the reason we went to them in years past, when RVs did NOT have toilets. I wish there were more public campgrounds, but, alas, I don’t think the federal government, in particular, will be creating any new ones, just closing or shortening the season on current ones. The only new parks these days are luxury resorts. Personally, I chose the smallest “big rig” I could for full-timing, 32 feet. I would much rather be in a Forest Service Campground, but I find that as a full-timer I prefer to stay in one place for a month or more to explore an area with my car. I’ll write more later. I think I just got everybody confused about what I was saying with a headline that was misleading. My mistake.
