Summary:

The throttle pedal position sensor on the affected vehicles may not return to zero, causing the engine brake to suddenly not activate as expected, reducing the vehicle's deceleration ability.
Consequence:
      A sudden loss of an engine brake without warning on a motorhome may lead to a reduced brake ability, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the throttle pedal, free of charge. An interim notice was mailed out to owners on July 5, 2016. The recall began on August 18, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-711.
