SUMMARY:
Thor Motor Coach (Thor) is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Windsport, model year 2006-2010 Magellan, model year 2007-2013 Hurricane, model year 2009-2013 Serrano and model year 2011-2013 A.C.E motorhomes. The motorhomes are equipped with an RV Custom Products Battery Control Center (BCC) which may experience a failure while the motorhome is in motion.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the BCC fails, all power may be lost to the motorhome chassis, including all lighting, making the vehicle very difficult to operate, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Thor will notify owners, and dealers will rewire the BCC free of charge. A notification schedule has not yet been provided. Customers may contact Thor at 1-877-855-2867. Thor’s recall campaign number is RC000077.

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.

  1. I just returned frpm a trip and before leaving the campground everything was functions. During the drive home nothing in the chassis works on battery. It does work when on shore power. The light indicator center doea not show levels or battery condition. Could this be the same problen as indicated above. It is a 2012 Challenger.

  2. Rod,

    I suppose it is possible you have the same problem although your motorhome was not specifically mentioned in the recall. A Google search showed a lot of discussion of the RV forms raring the unit in other RV brands.

    Contact Thor Customer Service and explain your problem.

    You could check to see if you have a RV Custom Products Battery Control Center in your motorhome. Check your owners manual or just look at your fuse panel. You can do Google image search for a photo of the RV Custom Products Battery Control Center to compare with your charger.

    You might want to check to see if you have a blown fuse on your house battery line. If you have one, you should, it will be somewhere close to the positive battery post of your house battery. It should be a 30 or 40 amp automotive fuse.
