NHTSA commercial vehicle recalls for the week of July 18, 2022.


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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2022-2023 Legend, Xpeditor, and Xspotter trucks equipped with Sheppard Steering Gears. The steering gears may have been assembled incorrectly, which can cause the gear to fracture. A fractured steering gear can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 601 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2022 Prime Time Avenger, Crusader, Lacrosse, Ozark, Tracer, Sanibel, East to West Della Terra, Silverlake, Forest River Cherokee, Flagstaff, IBEX, RPod, Rockwood, Salem, Sierra, Sandpiper, and Wildwood fifth wheel and travel trailers. The electric retractable awning has a welded seam on the fabric that may separate, potentially allowing the awning to drop beyond normal operation. An awning that drops or extends beyond normal operation can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 19,911 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2022 Coachmen Catalina travel trailers. The breakaway switch may be incorrectly wired to the battery disconnect, which can prevent the trailer brakes from activating as intended. Trailer brakes that fail to activate can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 202 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2021-2022 Dynamax Isata Class 3 and Class 5 motorhomes, 2021 Coachmen Sportscoach, 2020 Coachmen Pursuit, and 2017, 2020-2021 Coachmen Freelander motorhomes. The service valves on the LPG tanks may be improperly connected, which can cause a propane leak. A propane leak in the presence of an ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 172 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2022 Coachmen Apex travel trailers. The tail lights may have been incorrectly wired to an “ON/OFF” switch, which can cause the brake or tail lights to not illuminate when the switch is in the “off” position. Brake or tail lights that fail to illuminate can reduce visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 172 units are affected by the recall.
  • General Motors has decided that certain 2022 model year Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra vehicles equipped with an accessory sport bar. The accessory sport bar contains a high-mounted brake light that may not function. In addition, it may block the vehicle’s existing high-mounted brake light. As such, these vehicles may fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.” An inoperative high-mounted brake light can reduce visibility to other drivers and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 242 units are affected by the recall.
  • Roush CleanTech is recalling certain altered 2016-2022 Ford E350, E450, F450, F550, F53, F59, F650 and F750 trucks that were sold, or registered in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The zinc-plating on the fuel return line may break away when contacted by road debris, causing two dissimilar metals on the fuel line to contact each other and corrode. A corroded fuel line can leak fuel and increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 3,245 units are affected by the recall.
