Defect SummaryNewmar is recalling 409 my 2007-2008 all star, dutch star, ventana, and kountry star diesel pushers motor home chassis. there may be a loose connection between the bus bar and a grid pad due to the pins being slightly smaller diameters after assembly. electrical power may be lost to components of the major chassis operating systems (engine, transmission, starting, cooling) causing the vehicle to shut down and/or not be capable of powering up.
Consequence SummaryEach vehicle could potentially experience a unique circumstance where one or a combination of the following conditions could occur: loss of electrical power to the engine, transmission, starting and engine cooling systems, operation of the right chassis stop/turn signal and right trailer stop/turn signal, the anti-lock brake system, auxiliary brake system, the heater elements in the air dryer, and the heater element in the water-in- fuel separator.
Corrective SummaryNewmar is working with spartan to repair these motor homes (please see 07v363). the dvec bussmann box will be replaced. owners may contact spartan at 1-517-543-6400 or newmar at 574-773-7791.
