Text from press release:
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Lippert Components has notified Stromberg Carlson of its intent to recall an electric coach step product that passed through Stromberg Carlson Products.
“While Stromberg Carlson made no changes to the product, we must make you aware of Lippert Components’ recall in expectation that the end user will be able to address and resolve any problems or concerns related to this Lippert Components electric coach step product recall directly with Lippert Components,” said Robert Brammer, president of Stromberg Carlson.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Lippert Components will recall 47,340 steps. A potential structural fracture of the center bolt of the fan gear assembly may cause the fan gear assembly to disengage from the steps.
If the center bolt of the fan gear assembly fractures, the fan gear assembly may disengage from the steps making the steps unstable possibly causing a person to fall and resulting in injury, NHTSA reported.
The bolt may fracture from stress on the bolt caused by misuse of the steps, overloading, collision or other outside influences. Steps do not fully retract under the motorized recreation vehicle or there could be no warning prior to the bolt fracture, the recall notice indicated.
