Foretravel recalls 81 to fix loose ball joints

WASHINGTON — Foretravel is recalling 81 2012 to 2018 ih-45, Phenix and Nimbus motorhomes because the ball joints on the independent front suspension (IFS) modules can loosen and separate, leading to a partial loss of steering, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

A separated ball joint can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Foretravel will notify owners, and dealers will inspect clean, and secure the ball joint, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Foretravel customer service at 800.955.6226, and select Option 3.
