Defect SummaryFour winds is recalling 684 my 2002-2006 infinity, my 2002-2007 windesport, my 2004-2008 hurricane, my 2006-2007 megallan and my 2008 fun mover motor homes equipped with axles that include bosch zops or zoht pin slide hydraulic disc brakes. when combined with occasional or seasonal vehicle operation may experience calipers sticking in the applied position. this can result in abnormal heat generation at the wheel end causing brake drag. the driver would normally have warning of the brake drag if undetected by the driver.
Consequence SummaryThe driver would normally detect the brake drag but if undetected the temperature increase at the wheel end can eventually lead to soft pedal conditions due to brake fluid boil, and possible extended stopping distance increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective SummaryDealers will inspect and replace the necessary components free of charge. workhorse is handling the remedy for this campaign please see 09v-110. workhorse will conduct the owner and dealer notification. owners may contact workhorse at 1-877-246-7731.

 Upon purchase on 2/17/2007, the dash light dimmer switch would not dim the dash lights. the dash lights were modified by the motor home manufacturer and therefore they are responsible, this according to workhorse the chassis manufacturer. i filed this defect in a letter to the business i purchased the motor home from and also the manufacturer on february 21, 2007. i have taken the motor home in twice to fix this defect and neither time was the problem resolved. the dash lights are fixed on bright and is a hazard for night driving as the glare is very strong making it difficult to see the road ahead. i notified the manufacturer in writing again on november 10, 2007 and december 21, 2007 and february 5, 2008 sent and acknowledged as received by fedex. the manufacturer will not authorize diagnostic time required to diagnose the problem. *tr
