Gulf Stream Coach, Inc. "GSC" is recall certain model year 2006 through 2008 Crescendo, Sun Voyager, Independence, Bounty Hunters, and Yellowstone Class A diesel pusher motor homes built on Freightliner Custom Chassis "FCCC" from March 18, 2005, through December 2009. These motorhomes chassis are equipped with Bosch hydraulic disc brakes which, when exposed to long periods of time of non-driving, may experience diametrical brake caliper piston growth and reduced piston to bore clearance potentially leading to brake drag and overheating resulting in reduced brake performance.
Reduced brake performance increases the risk of a crash.
FCCC will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles, free of charge. An interim letter was mailed by DTNA on August 6, 2012. Owners may contact GSC at 1-800-289-8787 or Daimler Trucks/FCCC at 1-800-547-0712.
