2019 FCCC MC - SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:SUPPLY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017-2019 FCCC MC motorhome chassis. The primary air line was incorrectly connected to the secondary air pressure gauge and the secondary air line was connected to the primary air pressure gauge. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems."

  • Hazard
    In the event of a failure of one of the two air systems, an incorrect air pressure reading may occur, confusing the driver, therefore increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air gauge lines for proper connection, correcting them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 24, 2018. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-793.
