Newmar recalls 11 RVs for insufficient light output

Newmar recalls 11 RVs for insufficient light output

WASHINGTON — Newmar Corporation is recalling certain 2018 Essex motorhomes built on a Freightliner chassis. The low beam headlights do not also illuminate as intended when the high beam headlights are activated, reducing the driver’s visibility. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

Remedy

Newmar will notify owners, and Daimler Trucks North America authorized service facilities will reprogram the Freightliner chassis module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 20. Owners may contact Newmar customer service at 1-800-731-8300.
