Tiffin Motorhomes Recall

Report Receipt Date: DEC 28, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V880000

Potential Number of Units Affected: 14,889

Manufacturer: Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc.

Faulty Entry Steps

Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain model year 2007-2015 motorhomes manufactured May 1, 2007, to December 31, 2014, equipped with certain Coachstep Double and Triple Electric Steps. The bolt that attaches the fan gear assembly to the steps may fracture allowing the fan gear to disengage from the steps. As a result, the steps may not remain in the expected position and may become unstable. The unstable entry and exit steps increase the risk of injury.

Dealers will install a retainer bracket on the double step assemblies and the Coachstep Linkage Assembly will be replaced and a retainer bracket will be installed on the trip step assemblies. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661, or Lippert customer service at 1-574-537-8900.

Owners may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding the Tiffin Motorhomes recall by calling their Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visiting their website: www.safercar.gov.
