Summary:
      Spartan ERV "Spartan" is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 RMA 75 and RMP 100; model year 2004-2009 RMA 103 and model year 2004-2010 TDA aerial fire vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with rotation interlock magnets that are attached by an adhesive. The adhesive degrades over time causing the magnets to detach.
Consequence:
      Without properly positioned rotation interlock magnets, the aerial position cannot be properly tracked and if the outriggers are not fully deployed, the vehicle may become unstable, allowing it to roll over, causing personal injury.
Remedy:
      Spartan has notified owners, and the rotation interlock magnets will be secured using mechanical fasteners, free of charge. Owners may contact Spartan ERV at 1-800-867-6478, Option 2.
