ShowHauler Trucks, Inc. "ShowHauler" is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Motorhomes, Garage units, and Toterhomes manufactured June 1, 2007, to April 13, 2011. The affected vehicles are equipped with certain Lippert-brand Coachstep Double and Triple Electric Steps. These steps use a bolt to attach the fan gear assembly to the steps. This bolt may fracture allowing the fan gear to disengage from the steps. As a result, the steps may not remain in the expected position and may be unstable.
Unstable entry and exit steps increase the risk of injury.
ShowHauler will notify owners and dealers will install a retainer bracket to reinforce the operating mechanism, free of charge. The recall began on February 23, 2016. Owners may contact ShowHauler customer service at 1-574-825-6764.
