Newmar Corporation recalled 141 model year 2021 Dutch Star, New Aire and Ventana motorhomes due to potential safety risk.
The adjustable brake pedal assembly may be missing a return spring, and may cause the brake lights to stay illuminated after the brake pedal is released.
Also, in certain towed vehicles, the brakes may stay engaged after the brake pedal is released.
Malfunctioning brake lights can fail to alert other motorists of the driver’s intention, increasing the risk of a crash.
Additionally, brakes remaining unintentionally engaged on a towed vehicle can increase the risk of a crash.
Newmar will notify owners, while dealers will inspect the brake pedal assembly, and install a return spring, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 16, 2021.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
