Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc. (Tiffin) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Breeze motorhomes manufactured July 7, 2015, to June 14, 2016. The affected vehicles have air compressors attached to the engine that may fail due to debris from manufacturing being left in the air intake tube.
Failure of the air compressor may result in the inability to maintain air pressure while driving which would cause the parking brake to set unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
Tiffin will notify owners, and Cummins certified technicians will inspect the air compressor for debris. Engines with no damage will have a new air intake tube installed. Engines with foreign material damage will be repaired by a Cummins certified technician, and have the air intake tube, charge air cooler, and air filter replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661. Tiffin’s number for this recall is TIF-101.
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.
