Newmar Corporation (Newmar) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Dutch Star and Ventana motorhomes manufactured January 22, 2016, to November 7, 2016, equipped with Cummins ISL engines. These 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 steering fluid can increase the risk of a fire.
Newmar will notify owners, and Freightliner dealers will reroute the power steering hose for proper clearance, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2017. Owners may contact Freightliner customer service at 1-800-547-0712 or Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar's number for this recall is 16V 809.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2017 XLR recreational trailers, models XLF413AMP, XLF422AMP, WZXLF422AMP and XLF380AMP, manufactured September 29, 2016, to November 8, 2016. The affected vehicles may be equipped with an incorrect Federal Placard that does not indicate that the vehicle has a third axle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.
Chrysler will notify owners, and Jeep dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace fuel tank and sending unit, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 2, 2017. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S90.
