Summary:
      CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 120, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS." THESE MOTOR HOMES WERE ERRONEOUSLY ASSIGNED INADEQUATE COLD TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES AND INADEQUATE AXLE WEIGHT RATINGS ON THE FRONT AND/OR REAR AXLES AS A RESULT OF MATHEMATICAL MISCALCULATIONS.
Consequence:
      THIS COULD CAUSE PREMATURE TIRE TREAD WEAR OR TIRE FAILURE DURING NORMAL DRIVING. THE PREMATURE TIRE TREAD WEAR OR TIRE FAILURE COULD LEAD TO A LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT AND/OR REAR TIRES. IN SOME INSTANCES, THE MOTOR HOMES MAY ONLY HAVE AN INADEQUATE FAWR AND/OR RAWR STATED ON THE FEDERAL TIRE LABEL AND ONLY THE FEDERAL TIRE LABEL WILL BE REPLACED. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN AUGUST 28, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT COUNTRY COACH AT 1-800-452-8015.
