The potential number of coaches involved is 193.
On certain motorhomes, an incorrect spare tire carrier assembly that does not properly support the spare tire and wheel was mounted under the rear of the unit. As a result, the spare tire could detach from the carrier assembly and fall to the road surface. Should this occur while the vehicle is in motion, a crash may result. Owners of vehicles included in this recall are advised to remove the spare tire from the carrier assembly before continuing to drive the vehicle.
Dealers will install the correct spare tire system and also a secondary mechanical backup latch. The repair is expected to take approximately three hours. However, because of service scheduling times, the service center may need the vehicle for a longer time period.

On certain motorhomes, the slideout room may activate while traveling, causing the overall vehicle width to increase. Water can short out the electronic control relay for the slideout room control mechanism.
