Issue

On certain motorhomes, the DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) tank bracket has the potential to make contact with the tag axle tire. This could result in damage to the tire, potentially causing rapid air loss and/or tire failure, which could affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Spartan Motors Service Centers will reorient the DEF tank bracket to ensure clearance from the tire.
