Newmar Corporation "Newmar" is recalling certain model year 2015 Essex motorhomes manufactured March 13, 2014, to November 13, 2014, built on Spartan chassis. Due to the steering column having inadequate spline engagement at the steering gear, the steering shaft may disconnect or slip.
If the steering shaft disconnects or slips there would be a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Spartan will notify owners on behalf of Newmar, and dealers will replace the steering shaft, free of charge. The recall began on February 26, 2015. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300.
