MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – Entegra Coach is recalling certain 2015-2019 Entegra Coach Aspire Class A, Insignia Class A recreational vehicles with Shyft Group/Spartan RV Chassis to remedy a potential inadequate air-brake-chamber capacity.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Part 573 Safety Recall Report 22V-891, “The combined volume of air in all service and supply reservoirs does not meet the 12X combined volume for all service brake chambers as defined in S22.214.171.124 of FMVSS 121 – Air brake Systems.”
Shyft Group/Spartan RV Chassis provided a list of affected VINs to Entegra Coach Motor home chassis affected by this recall are equipped with T24 brake chambers on the steer axle, T30 brake chambers on the drive axle, T16 brake chambers on the steer axle and a 500 cubic inch reservoir (wet tank). Vehicles not included in this recall are equipped with a 1,000 cubic inch reservoir (wet tank).
The safety risk according to NHTSA is during increased braking events, there may be inadequate air volume for the service brakes which may lead to other unintended consequences that could increase the risk of a crash. There were no indications of any accidents or injuries due to this condition in the report.
The proposed remedy is exchange of one air reservoir with one with a larger air capacity. Specifically, the affected vehicles’ 500-cubic-inch capacity tank will be replaced by one with 1,000 cu. in.
Dealers and owners are scheduled to be notified as to the recall by Dec. 23rd.
