Component: SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 1881
Summary:
      Daimler Trucks North America "DTNA" is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation "FCCC" XCM, XCR, and XCL motorhome chassis manufactured December 21, 2012, to December 22, 2015. On certain motorhome chassis built with a heavier, adjustable, straight foot pedal, the brake activation signal to certain towed devices may not deactivate when the motorhome service brakes are released.
Consequence:
      If the brake activation signal to a towed device remains active when the motorhome chassis service brakes are released, the brakes on a towed device may remain engaged depending on brake configuration of the trailer. As a result, the brakes would drag and possibly overheat potentially resulting in a fire. Additionally, following drivers may be confused by the motorhome's actions, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will modify the affected brake assemblies, free of charge. The recall began on November 7, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-723.
