What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects 2019-2020 Fleetwood Pace Arrow motorhomes, models 33D, 36U, 35QS, 35S, 35RB, and 35E.
The auxiliary batteries inside the interior step compartment of affected motorhomes were secured in place with a metal hold-down bracket secured with carriage bolts and standard nuts, NHTSA said.
This hardware may loosen, allowing the metal hold-down bracket to shift or move and make contact with the battery terminals. If the bracket contacts the battery terminal it may short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.
REV Recreation Group is notifying owners and dealers will install replacement battery hold-down mounting hardware, free of charge.
This recall began on September 25, 2020.
When Does an Electrical Short Circuit Occur?
An electrical short circuit occurs when there is a fault in a vehicle’s wiring that causes electricity to flow through the wrong path, instead of flowing to its intended destination. Short circuits can occur for many reasons, often due to lost connections, damaged insulation, or corroded wires.
There are 2 primary short circuits in cars: short to ground and short to power.
- Short-to-ground happens when the current flows through the car body to the ground instead of flowing through the intended circuit. It can happen if there is a loose connection between the wire and the car body.
- Short to power occurs when the current flows back into the power source instead of flowing through the intended circuit. It can happen if there is a loose connection between the wire and the battery terminal.
