Issue

Issue: On certain motorhomes, the brake pedal may not be equipped with a return spring. As a result, the pedal may not fully return when it is released. If this happens, the brake lights may stay on. If a trailer is connected to the motorhome, this could also cause the trailer brakes to remain on. Safety Risk: Brake lights that stay on could cause other road users not to recognize when the vehicle is braking. This could increase the risk of a crash. Trailer brakes that do not release could also increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: Newmar will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your motorhome to a Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) authorized service facility to inspect the adjustable brake pedal assembly and install the missing return spring, if necessary.
