NHTSA RECALLS FOR JANUARY 2012
Crossroads RV is recalling certain model year 2012 Rushmore and Elevation recreational vehicles manufactured from June 1, 2011, through January 12, 2012, with panther style 16" 8-lug aluminum wheels. These vehicles have been manufactured with an incorrect wheel center cap. The center cap that was assembled with the trailer did not provide adequate clearance to allow the wheel to fully seat on the hub face of the axle. This can result in a wheel becoming loose and potentially coming off of the trailer. A wheel separation can lead to loss of control of the trailer increasing the risk of a crash, serious injuries, or damage to others. Crossroads RV will notify owners, and replace the center caps free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during February 2012. Owners may contact Crossroads RV at 1-888-226-7496.
DRV Suites (DRV), formerly Doubletree RV, is recalling certain model year 2008 and 2010-2011 Select, Mobile, and Elite Suite recreational vehicles manufactured from June 12, 2007, through October 27, 2010 and equipped with disc brakes. Due to the paint applied to the aluminum wheel and hub face, the wheel may become loose. This situation can result in the wheel/rim moving, shearing of the wheel studs and the wheel coming off of vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. DRV will notify owners, and dealers will remove the paint from the hub face and the back of the wheels free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during February or early March 2012. Owners may contact DRV at 1-574-457-6472.
