Issue

On certain motorhomes, the fasteners that secure the trailer hitch to the chassis may have been improperly torqued during installation. An improperly torqued nut and bolt may result the hitch dropping loose on one side of the chassis, which may cause a potential loss of vehicle control. If all of the fasteners were to fail, the hitch could detach from the motorhome and become a road hazard, which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will install a new and improved fastener kit and ensure proper torque.
