Thor Motor Coach recalls 36 to fix power step fuse

WASHINGTON — Thor Motor Coach is recalling 36 2017 Quantum KM24 motorhomes because the power supply wire for the steps was incorrectly attached to a 50-amp circuit breaker instead of being connected to a 20-amp circuit breaker, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

Should the step circuit be overloaded, the breaker may not trip as intended, increasing the risk of a fire, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

TMC will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the power wire for the steps to the correct breaker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 7. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 877.500.1020. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000135.
