Daimler Trucks North America Chassis Frame Recall

Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 FCCC XBR, XCL, XCM, and XCR recreational vehicle chassis manufactured January 1, 2016, to October 12, 2016, equipped with Cummins ISL engines. The power steering hose on the affected vehicles 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.


DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will reroute the power steering hose to provide proper clearance, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 30, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 . DTNA’s number for this recall is FL-727.


Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
