The affected vehicles may experience circuit corrosion from water intrusion around the in-floor battery cover and door footwell trim.

Defect Consequence

Defect Corrective Action

Chrysler on behalf of Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will inspect all the connectors in the footwell areas, the ignition fuse and the occupant restraint control (ORC) module for corrosion, if corrosion is found, dealers will repair the connectors in the footwell area and the ignition fuse, and replace the ORC module. Chrysler will also install a water barrier sealer on the floor, add di-electric grease to all footwell connectors and replace the body plug. The in-floor battery ignition fuse will be relocated, and add di-electric grease to the ORC module connector. These repairs will be performed, free of charge. The recall began in October 2014.

Defect Description

Winnebago Industries, Inc. (Winnebago) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Winnebago Trend, Travato, and Itasca Viva motorhomes manufactured November 13, 2013, to December 23, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one of the tires lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change in air pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."

Defect Consequence

If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Defect Corrective Action

Winnebago will have Chrysler notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS module software, free of charge. The recall began December 8, 2014. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 1-800-537-1885. Winnebago's number for this recall is P62.
