Subject: FCCC Motorhome Valve Stem Stabilizers

Models Affected: Specific model years 2017-2023 FCCC MBC, MC, MT55, S2C, S2G, S2RV, XBR, XBS, XCL, XCM, XCR, and XCS chassis manufactured February 20, 2017, through November 18, 2021, and equipped with a valve stem extension and stabilizer configured with a specific tire valve stem and wheel combination.

 

General Information

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA), on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation, has decided that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety exists on the vehicles mentioned above.

There are approximately 18,500 vehicles involved in this campaign.

Chronology :

In September of 2021, DTNA received two Vehicle Owner Questionnaires (VOQs) from customers complaining of valve stem(s) continuing to make contact with the outer wheel hand hole after having recall 20V529 (DTNA # FL861) performed. At the time of the original recall, based upon the information available at the time, DTNA reasonably believed its original defect remedy to be adequate. Based upon the more recent information, however, DTNA promptly opened an investigation and began reviewing the information from these VOQs.

In late September, DTNA received an additional VOQ with a similar complaint with additional information that caused the scope of the investigation to widen. In October of 2021, DTNA received an additional VOQ and continued investigating.

In November of 2021, DTNA reviewed Customer and dealer complaint tickets and discovered possible instances where the previous recall remedy may not have been completely effective. In mid-November, out of an abundance of caution, DTNA decided to conduct a recall to institute a different remedy.

In February 2022, DTNA discovered a claim from a dealer who may have reinstalled suspect components from vehicles that were remedied with the recall fix prior to release from the factory. After investigating the issue, it was discovered that the aftermarket parts system did not reflect the correct, remedied condition of the affected vehicles. Out of an abundance of caution, DTNA expanded the population to include units updated prior to shipping from the factory for increased visibility on units updated at the factory, to take steps intended to prevent vehicles from reverting to the pre-remedied state.

On February 28, 2022,DTNA received information from the field where certain vehicles included in the recall, do not have the suspect parts. DTNA began investigating this information and discovered… Continued on uploaded submission.
