Factory Recalls

This page last updated 10/31/22

When our very few, but merry, team of volunteers become aware of official recalls pertaining to our chapter members' coaches, we will post them here. This is in no way to be construed as anything close to a full list. Far from it. And we make no claims to try to make it a full list.

In addition to any shown attached at the bottom of this page, there are also additional recalls as follows:

Recall NHTSA #15V-880, Transport Canada #2016-035 Coach Step Double & Triple Electric Entry Steps. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, could exist on the following models of motorhomes: 2007-2010 Allegro Bays, 2008-2015 Allegro Open Roads and REDs, 2008-2015 Allegro Buses, 2008-2015 Phaetons. The specific motorhomes contain Coach Step Electric Double or Triple entry steps that were manufactured between May 25, 2007 and December 18, 2014 by Lippert Components, Inc. On certain motorhomes equipped with these Coach Step electric entry steps, an internal bolt on the steps that attaches the fan gear assembly to the steps could fracture. This results in the fan gear disengaging from the steps, which could cause the steps to stop in an unexpected position and appear to be loose or unstable. If the steps become unstable, it could cause a person to fall, resulting in injury. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)

Please contact Lippert Components, Inc (LCI) at 574-537-8900 or customerservice@lci1.com to arrange for repair.


Recall NHTSA #16V-532, Transport Canada #2016-389, Tiffin Recall # TIF-100 Breaking of Windshield Wiper Arms. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, could exist on the following models of motorhomes: 2007-2011 Allegro Open Roads and Reds, 2007-2010 Allegro Bays, 2010-2011 Allegro Breezes, 2007-2011 Allegro Buses, 2007-2011 Phaetons and 2007-2011 Zephyrs. These motorhomes are equipped with windshield wiper arms that could break causing the wiper arms and blades to fall off. If the wiper arms were to break, this would reduce the driver's visibility in rainy conditions and could increase the possibility of a crash. Tiffin Motorhomes will be supplying owners with a new set of wiper arms to replace the defective ones. (Recall is as published in "Roughing it Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #16V-638, Tiffin #TIF-103 Securing Passenger Side Rearview Mirror. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2017 Allegro Buses. These motorhomes are equipped with a passenger's side mirror that could move while the vehicle is in motion, which could limit the driver's view, as well as damaging the coach and mirror. A broken side mirror may reduce the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. To secure the mirror arm, an arm lockdown set screw will be added to the arm. (Recall is as published in Roughing It Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #16V-623, Tiffin #TIF-102 Driver Side Wiper Linkage. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2017 Allegro Open Roads. These motorhomes are equipped with a driver's side wiper assembly that was installed with a linkage that was 1/2 inch too short. The shorter linkage can cause the wiper arm to wipe off of the windshield which could potentially break the wiper arm when it tries to come back across. A broken windshield wiper may reduce the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. (Recall is as published in "Roughing it Smoothly magazine)


Recall NHTSA #16V-692, Tiffin #TIF-104 Incorrect Weight Capacity Sticker on Allegro Open Road Hitch. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2015 - 2017 Allegro Open Roads. These motorhomes have a sticker attached to the tow hitch that lists an incorrect weight capacity for the hitch. The incorrect label states a gross trailer capacity of 10,000 LB with a max tongue weight of 1,000 LB. The correct label should state a gross trailer capacity of 5,000 LB with a max tongue weight of 500 LB. If the hitch is loaded to the capacity on the original sticker, this could lead to a failure of the hitch. Failure of the hitch could result in the loss of the tow vehicle which could result in a crash. Tiffin Motorhomes is sending out a correct weight capcity sticker to be attached to the hitch of your motorhome. Please remove the old one. (Recall is as published in "Roughing it Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #17V-113, Tiffin #TIF-105 Incorrect Weight Capacity Sticker on Allegro Open Road Hitch. NOTE: This is an expansion of 16V-692, TIF-104, issued to include additional 2017 Allegro Open Road Motorhomes. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall NHTSA #16V-562, Tiffin #TIF-101 Possible Foreign Debris ISV Intake Tube, Allegro Breeze 32BR. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety, could exist on the following models of motorhomes: Allegro Breeze 32BR, model years 2016 and 2017. Tiffin Motorhomes has become aware of the possibility that foreign debris may be in the tube that supplies fresh air to the engine. It is possible that this foreign debris could damage the air compressor. If the vehicle is unable to maintain air pressure whie driving, the park brake may set leaving the vehicle unable to move, which could increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Tiffin will arange the inspection of the motors and repairs as needed. (Recall is as published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #16V-397, Transport Canada #2016-305 ZF/Bosch Steering Gear Recall. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, could exist on the following models of motorhomes. 2015-2016 Allegro Buses, and 2014-2016 Phaetons. The specific units affected were built on Tiffin Motorhome's PowerGlide Chassis. Tiffin Motorhomes was notified by ZF North America of the possibility that some steering gear boxes mounted on the front axle were built using the wrong spacer. If the wrong spacer was installed in a steering gear box, the insufficient height can result in too much play. This could lead to the connection wearing out, which could lead to a loss of connection between the steering wheel and front axle wheels. A loss of connection while driving may cause a sudden loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. (Recall is as published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #17V-163, Tiffin #TIF-106, Phaeton Exhaust Modification 2010-2012 on PowerGlide Chassis ONLY. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2010-2012 Phaetons that are built with 2010 EPA-Certified engines on a PowerGlide Chassis. It has been found that the exhaust pipe is mounted too close to the underside of the floor. A heat shield and insulation that was previously installed on these coaches may fail and allow excessive heat to contact the floor of the coach which can result in a fire. Tiffin Motorhomes will remove the existing side inlet DPF exhaust configuration, and install a new end inlet DPF exhaust configuration on these coaches to provide greater clearance between the exhaust tube and the floor. This repair will be made at no costs to you. This repair will take approximately 12 hours to complete. NOTE: This is an expansion of 15V-612. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall NHTSA #17V-200, Tiffin Recall #TIF-107 2011-2016 Allegro Open Road Rail Attachment for Tow Hitch. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2011-2016 Allegro Open Roads. These motorhomes have incorrectly sized holes at the attachment point in the frame rail for the tow hitch. Under certain loading conditions the hitch and/or the tow vehicle could become detached from the motorhome. Failure of the hitch could result in the loss of the tow vehicle, which could result in a crash causing injury or damage to property. Tiffin Motorhomes will provide frame rail extension liner brackets that will correct the size of the bolt holes. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall NHTSA #17V-232, Tiffin Recall #TIF-108 2017 Allegro Breeze Central Steering Ball Joints. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2017 Allegro Breeze motorhomes. Tiffin Motorhomes has been notified that some Independent Front Suspension (IFS) modules manufactured by Reyco Granning and installed on these models of motorhomes could contain loose ball joints. If loose ball joints are not detected, they may eventually separate from their mating part, which could result in a loss of steering control. This increases the possibility of a motor vehicle crash. Specific involved motorhomes will need to be inspected to determine if the IFS modules contain loose ball joints. If loose ball joints are found, they will be repaired. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall Kidde NHTSA #17E-062, Tiffin NHTSA Recall #17V-841 Kidde Fire Extinguisher. Customers with Tiffin units from models 2003 to early models of 2018 should immediately contact Kidde to see if your fire extinguisher is involved. If so, you can request a free replacement fire extinguisher and instructions on returning the recalled unit, as it may not work properly in a fire emergency. Contact Kidde toll-free at 855-262-3540 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time; Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Time; or online: www.kidde.com and click on "Product Safety Recall" for more information. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine)


Recall NHTSA #18V 328, Tiffin Recall #TIF-109 2013-2018 Allegro Open Road Reinforcement of Frame Rail at Tow Hitch. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2013-2018 Allegro Open Roads. Tiffin Motorhomes has become aware that the steel of the frame rail where the hitch is attached to the motorhome needs to be reinforced to strengthen the hitch attachment to the frame rail. If the steel is not reinforced the hitch may come loose from the motorhome and that may result in the loss of the tow vehicle, which could result in a crash causing injury or damage to property. Tiffin Motorhomes will provide a steel insert that will double the amount of steel at the points where the hitch is attached to the frame rail of the motorhome. Tiffin Motorhomes previously issued a recall in March of 2017 concerning an issue with the failure of the hitch attachment on certain Allegro Open Road motorhomes due to the sizing of the bolt holes in the frame rail. All motorhomes included in the original recall that did not have a steel gusset box installed will need to complete this new call repair. If this new recall repair is not completed, the hitch may fail even after completing the previous recall repair. Notice: As of October 1, 2018 Tiffin Motorhomes will not pay the customer for doing the work to install the steel insert on the Hitch Recall NHTSA 18V-328. Tiffin allows the steel insert to be sent to the customer as a courtesy so customers can find a dealer or service center near their current location. Having the part already allows the recall to be completed more quickly. It was never our intention for the customer to make the repair. That being said, from this point on, if customer decides not to heed our warning, customer is assuming the liability for the repair were it to fail in the future. Tiffin will not be responsible for any future warranty repairs to that hitch or for any damage that may arise from the recall not being completed properly. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall NHTSA #18V-341, Tiffin Recall #TIF-110 PTL Entry Door Lock Adjustment, 2018 models. Tiffin Motorhomes has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists on the following models of motorhomes: 2018 Allegro Open rods, 2018 Allegro RED's, 2018 Allegro Breezes, 2018 Allegro Buses, 2018 Phaetons and 2018 Zephyrs built between January 2, 2018 and May 15, 2018. These specific motorhomes have an entry door equipped with a PTL door lock. Tiffin Motorhomes has found that under certain circumstances these doors could open in transit. These specific doors could open because they are equipped with a door lock that was over-tightened at the time it was manufactured. The over tightening of the door lock can make it more difficult for the door to close securely. If the door is not securely closed, the door could open in transit. If the entry door were to open in transit it would be possible for injury to occur to any passengers riding inside the motorhome and it could increase the possibility of a crash. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)


Recall NHTSA #19V-228, Tiffin Recall #TIF-111 Energy Management Module overheating 2018 & 2019 Phaeton, Allegro Bus & Zephyr.

Tiffin Motorhomes has become aware that the alternating current lines that go to the Energy Management Module located in the rear load center may not be securely installed in the terminal levers. If these lines are not properly installed in the load center there is the possibility that the alternating current lines could overheat. If these lines were to overheat, that could result in a thermal event. The Energy Management Module needs to be inspected to determine if the alternating current lines are installed correctly. (Recall is published in "Roughing It Smoothly" magazine.)

Tiffin Motorhomes has become aware that there is the possibility that the windshield wipers may not work on some 2018, 2019 & 2020 Zephyrs and 2019 & 2020 Allegro Buses. Tiffin Motorhomes found that some of these motorhomes have windshield wipers that are not wired to their power source correctly. If the wiring is not corrected, there is the possibility that the windshield wipers will not work when the switch is turned on. If the windshield wipers fail to turn on, that can reduce the driver's visibility and increase the risk of a crash.


Recall 21V-193: Certain 2021 Phaeton 40 OH and 40 IH motorhomes built on Powerglide chassis. The valve stem stabilizer can become loose, allowing the valve stem extender to contact the wheel, resulting in rapid loss of tire pressure. Tiffin recall number: TIF-114. Tiffin (256) 356-8661.
