Defect SummaryDamon is recalling 738 my 2005-2007 astoria, tuscany, my 2005 astoria waldorf, and my 2006-2007 astoria pacific motor homes built on freightliner xc chassis. the chassis contains steering filters that can plug due to failure of the screen adhesion to the filter housing causing a rise in return line pressure potentially leading to a hose separation from the filter or steering gear fitting resulting in a sudden loss of steering fluid and power assist.
Consequence SummarySudden loss of steering assist without warning involving a motor home could be a problem for certain drivers increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective SummaryFreightliner is conducting this recall and will replace the affected filters with a larger filter (please see 07v570). owners may contact freightliner at 1-800-547-0712 or damon at 1-800-860-3812.
