The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019 Metris vans [platform 447 (VS20)] with gasoline engines and automatic transmissions. The driveshaft may not be attached to the intermediate bearing correctly, causing excessive wear to the driveshaft joint and excessive vibrations. Damage to the driveshaft joint could result in a loss of drive, increasing the risk of a crash. Excessive vibrations may cause the frontal air bags to deploy unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 12 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2021 FR3 recreational vehicles built on a Ford chassis with a V8 engine. The wiring harness may have an incorrect wire connected to the parking brake, allowing the leveling jacks to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is in motion. If the leveling jacks deploy while the vehicle is in motion, it can cause loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 62 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2020 Alpine, Avalanche, Fuzion, Laredo, Montana, Raptor, Crossroads Redwood, and Dutchmen Voltage trailers. The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal frame of the frameless windows may fail which can allow the glass to detach while moving. If the window glass detaches while the vehicle is moving it could become a projectile, increasing the risk of injury or a crash. NHTSA says potentially 428 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2020-2021 ACE, 2021 Four Winds and 2020 Gemini, Axis, Compass, Delano, Windsport, Hurricane, Outlaw, and Vegas motorhomes. The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal hinge frame of the frameless windows may fail which would then allow the glass to detach and fall out. If the window glass detaches while the vehicle is moving it could become a projectile, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 71 vehicles are affected by this recall.
