Update: Thor Hurricane, Windsport Motorhomes Recalled for Crash Hazard
Thor is recalling the following motorhomes for a potential manufacturing defect that could pose a crash hazard to occupants:
- 2018-2019 Thor Hurricane
- 2018-2019 Thor Windsport
The overhead cabinets located above the driver and front passenger seats on affected motorhomes may detach and fall onto the seat occupants, potentially causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, NHTSA said. A loss of vehicle control can increase the risk of a crash.
This recall began on February 5, 2021.
What's the Problem?
Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes which were sold with potentially defective circuit boards which could cause a fire from voltages over 17 volts or a reverse polarity.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects 2019-2021 Thor Hurricane and Thor Windsport motorhomes, models 27B, 29M, 32T, 33X, 34J, 34R and 35M.
The electronic control center circuit board on affected motorhomes may be damaged from voltages over 17 volts or a reverse polarity situation, NHTSA said. A damaged circuit board could increase the risk of a fire.
Thor Motor Coach is notifying owners and dealers will add an additional circuit module to the existing component board to provide reverse polarity and over-current protection, free of charge.
This recall began on October 20, 2020.
