Summary:
      Newmar Corporation "Newmar" is recalling certain model year 2016 Ventana, and Dutch Star vehicles manufactured March 19, 2015, to January 21, 2016 on Freightliner chassis. The affected vehicles have an "Incomplete Vehicle Label" that incorrectly lists the maximum front tire inflation level to be 130 pounds per square inch "psi", when the correct level is 120 psi.
Consequence:
      If the tire is overinflated due to the incorrect label, the tire may unexpectedly fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Newmar will notify owners, and Freightliner will provide a corrected label, free of charge. The recall began on February 29, 2016. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-574-773-7791.
