Issue

On certain motorhomes, the bracket which secures the power steering gear to the chassis may develop cracks. This could allow the steering gear to partially detach from the chassis, which could result in a loss of steering control and a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Since Fleetwood Enterprises Inc (the manufacturer of these vehicles) is no longer in business, Spartan Motor Chassis, Inc. is supplying vehicle owners with this courtesy notice. Owners are advised to contact Spartan at 800-393-8861, to locate an authorized repair facility. The remedy consists of inspecting and, as necessary, replacing the steering gear mounting bracket, or installing a support bracket.
