Winnebago recalled vehicle engine brakes

WASHINGTON — Winnebago Industries is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Winnebago Tour motorhomes manufactured May 25, 2013, to Nov. 25, 2015, and Itasca Ellipse motorhomes manufactured May 25, 2013, to Nov. 18, 2015.

The throttle pedal position sensor on the affected vehicles may not return to zero, causing the engine brake to suddenly not activate as expected, reducing the vehicle’s deceleration ability.

A sudden loss of an engine brake without warning on a motorhome may lead to a reduced brake ability, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
