Entegra recalls 177 motorhomes for throttle issue

WASHINGTON — Entegra Coach is recalling certain model year 2017 Aspire, Anthem, Cornerstone, and Insignia motorhomes manufactured April 15, 2016, to October 25, 2016 and built on Spartan Motors chassis.

The throttle circuit wires on the affected vehicles may not have been be twisted to cancel out electromagnetic interference, and as a result, interference may cause the throttle signal to be higher or lower than intended.

Unintended deceleration or acceleration can increase the risk of a crash, the release explained.

Entegra has notified owners, and Spartan service centers will install an overlay harness with twisted wires, free of charge. The recall began Nov. 29.

Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 800.543.4277 or Entegra customer service at 800.945.4787.
