Spartan Motors USA "Spartan" is recalling certain 2019-2020 Specialty K1 motor home chassis equipped with independent front suspension and front drum brakes. The cotter pins may be missing or improperly installed at the actuator rod of the front slack adjuster for the front brakes.
The missing or improperly installed cotter pin may cause the actuator rod to detach, affecting brake performance and lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Spartan will notify owners, and service centers will inspect the cotter pin installation, properly installing the pin and adjusting the brakes as necessary, free of charge. The recall began March 7, 2019. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-543-5008. Spartan's number for this recall is 19001.
