Update: Thor Motorhomes Recalled Over Fire Risk
Thor is recalling the following motorhomes which were manufactured with a potentially defective transfer switch that could fail, increasing the risk of a fire:
- 2010-2011 Thor Montecito 38D
- 2010-2011 Thor Montecito 38E
- 2010-2011 Thor Montecito 40J
- 2010-2011 Thor Montecito 42B
- 2010-2011 Thor Montecito 42C
These motorhomes are equipped with an Iota ITS-50R transfer switch which may experience a heat related failure due to being exposed to high electrical loads when used in higher ambient temperatures. "If the transfer switch continues to be used, it can increase the risk of a fire," NHTSA said.
This recall began on January 11, 2021
What's the Problem?
Thor Motor Coach, Inc., is recalling certain motorhomes for a potential transmission defect which could affect driveability of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash and severe bodily injuries.
This recall affects 2020-2021 Thor Tellaro 20AT and 20LT, and 2020 Sequence 20A, 20K, and 20L motorhomes, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The transmission shifter cable on affected motorhomes may separate and disconnect from the transmission, causing the vehicle to not perform shifts intended by the driver and the gear shift lever position not matching the actual transmission gear, NHTSA said. The driver may be unaware of the actual gear position and unintended vehicle movement can occur, increasing the risk of a crash.
Thor Motor Coach is notifying owners and dealers will replace the transmission shift cable, free of charge. This recall began on May 16, 2020.
