What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Thor Chateau 23U motorhomes from model years 2018-2021, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Bolts of the wrong size were used to secure the barrel chair pedestals on affected motorhomes, allowing the pedestal to separate from the floor in the event of a crash, NHTSA said. This makes the RVs fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 207, “Seating Systems” and number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”
“If the pedestal were to separate from the floor during a crash, the seat belt anchorages may fail, increasing the risk of injury,” NHTSA said.
Thor Motor Coach is notifying owners and dealers will inspect
the pedestal bolt size, correcting the hardware as necessary, free of charge.
This recall began on September 14, 2020.
