Summary:
      CERTAIN CLASS A MOTOR HOMES LACK THE REQUIRED JOUNCE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE REAR WHEELS. THE TIRES MAY RUB ON THE FLAT PANELS THAT ENCLOSE THE HOLDING TANKS AREA AND THE SCREWS WHICH SECURE THESE PANELS MAY RUB THE INNER SIDEWALL OF THE REAR DUAL TIRES.
Consequence:
      IF THE SCREWS CONTINUE TO RUB THE INNER REAR DUAL TIRE, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THERE COULD EVENTUALLY BE A TIRE FAILURE. A TIRE BLOW OUT COULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH. IN ADDITION, IF THE VEHICLE IS RUN ON A FLAT TIRE, THIS COULD LEAD TO A POTENTIAL FIRE IN THE WHEEL WELL AREA.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE REAR DUAL TIRES AND CUT OUT AN AREA OF FOAM FROM THE INNER WHEEL WELLS THAT WILL BE REPLACED WITH A PIECE OF ABS PLASTIC FORMED PANEL AND AN ANGLE TO SEAL THE AREA. THE RECALL BEGAN ON JANUARY 23, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MONACO AT 1-800-685-6545.
