Several news agencies have indicated that Thor Motor Coach has issued a recall for all units of 2011 through 2013 Astoria, Tuscany, Montecito, Ultrasport and Palazzo recreational vehicles over a possible crash risk.
These vehicles were equipped with certain diode jumpers that could eventually come detached, which could result in an open circuit.
If this occurs, two systems will be affected: the device that triggers the brake pedal lights and the system that disengages the cruise control. If the cruise control fails and the driver is unable to disengage the device, the crash risk increases. If you own any of the recalled RVs, contact the manufacturer and schedule a visit to a local dealer.
