Defect SummaryDamon is recalling 43 my 2006-2009 daybreak and my 2009 daybreak sport motor homes built on workhorse recreational vehicle chassis. the castle nut that retains the steering drag link to the pitman arm may have been improperly torqued during assembly. the improper torque may have damaged the castle nut and compromised the integrity of the connection.
Consequence SummaryIf the drag link were to separate from the pitman arm, the driver would not have directional control of the vehicle possibly causing a crash.
Corrective SummaryDamon is working with workhorse to replace and properly tighten the castle nut that retains the steering drag link to the pitman arm (please see 08v442). owners may contact workhorse at 1-877-946-7731 or damon at 1-800-860-3812.
