Summary:
      CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 120, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS." THESE MOTOR HOMES WERE ERRONEOUSLY ASSIGNED INADEQUATE TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES AND INADEQUATE AXLE WEIGHT RATINGS ON THE FRONT AND/OR REAR AXLES AS A RESULT OF MATHEMATICAL MISCALCULATIONS. THESE MOTOR HOMES HAVE TIRE WEIGHT RATINGS THAT ARE LESS THAN THE FRONT OR REAR AXLE WEIGHT RATINGS "FRONT AXLE WEIGHT RATING:FAWR AND REAR AXLE WEIGHT RATINGS:RAWR" AND IN SOME INSTANCES HAVE INADEQUATE FAWR AND/OR RAWR.
Consequence:
      AS A CONSEQUENCE, THE TIRES SELECTED FOR THESE MOTOR HOMES DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE STANDARD. IN SOME CASES, THIS NONCOMPLIANCE COULD CAUSE PREMATURE FRONT 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.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE FRONT AND/OR REAR TIRES AND REPLACED. FEDERAL TIRE LABELS WILL ALSO BE REPLACED. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN NOVEMBER 8, 2001. 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.
