Gulf Stream Coach recalls 340 RVs for DVD monitor

WASHINGTON — Gulf Stream Coach is recalling 340 certain model year 2016-2017 Conquest and B Touring Cruiser Class C motorhomes manufactured between Sept. 24, 2015, through Oct. 24, 2016.

In the affected vehicles, the in-dash radio unit assembly was improperly wired allowing the DVD to operate while the vehicle is in motion. If the DVD monitor is operating and viewable while the vehicle is in motion, it may be a distraction to the driver, increasing the risk of a crash, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

Remedy

Gulf Stream will notify owners, and dealers will disable the viewing of the DVD monitor while the vehicle is being driven, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin in December. Owners may contact the Gulf Stream customer service at 800.289.8787. Gulf Stream’s number for this recall is GM112316.
