On the affected chassis, the shaft of the ball joint on the steering relay rod may contact the ABS valve if the valve is in an incorrect orientation and the steering relay rod is in the full forward position during full right or left turns. Excessive contact with the ABS modulator valve could fracture the valve, which could result in air not being supplied to the affected wheel end during a braking event. This may reduce stopping distance or cause the vehicle to pull to one side, which could result in a crash.
A Spartan Motors dealer will reorient the ABS modulator valve and install spacers for additional clearance.

Winnebago Industries Inc. has announced NHTSA recall 13V400000 (Winnebago campaign 130), which involves model-year 2013 and 2014 Winnebago Aspect and Itasca Cambria motorhomes (models 730C and 730J) built from March 12, 2012, through May 31, 2013. The potential number of vehicles involved is 164.
On the affected motorhomes, the child seat tether is mounted in an improper position. This position does not allow the child seat to be used properly, and in a collision, it will not allow the child seat to properly protect the occupant, which may result in personal injury.
A Winnebago Industries dealer will remove the child seat tether, which is not required on these vehicles. The repair is expected to take approximately 45 minutes. However, because of service scheduling times, the service department may need the vehicle for a longer period of time.
For more information about this recall, contact Winnebago Industries Inc. at (800) 537-1885. Owner notification began in October 2013.
