Summary:
      Newmar Corporation "Newmar" is recalling certain model year 2015 Ventana, and 2015-2016 Ventana LE vehicles manufactured January 16, 2015, to January 13, 2016 built on Freightliner Chassis. The affected vehicles may have a front rim maximum pounds per square inch "psi" rating of 120psi which is lower than the Michelin tires maximum inflation rating of 130 psi.
Consequence:
      If the tires are inflated to their maximum pressure, the rims may suddenly fail due to being over pressurized, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Newmar will notify owners, and at the owner's choice dealers will either install a new Federal Tag Label with the correct psi rating or install 130 psi rated front rims. The recall began on March 22, 2016. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-574-773-7791.
