Entegra recalls 1,727 RVs for loose ball joints

Entegra recalls 1,727 RVs for loose ball joints

WASHINGTON — Entegra Coach is recalling 1,727 2012-2013 and 2015-2018 Anthem; 2013 and 2017-2018 Aspire; and 2012-2018 Cornerstone motorhomes built on a Spartan Motors chassis, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The ball joints on the independent front suspension (IFS) modules can loosen and separate, leading to a partial loss of steering. A separated ball joint can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Entegra will notify owners, and Spartan service centers will remove, clean, apply thread locker, and reinstall the properly torqued ball joint, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact call Spartan customer service at 800.543.4277 or Entegra customer service at 800.945.4787.
