The NHTSA issued the following recall notice:
Newmar Corporation (Newmar) is recalling certain 2015-2018 London Aire motorhomes built on Daimler Trucks (DTNA) chassis. When the high beams are activated, only the high beam bulbs illuminate instead of both the high beam and low beam bulbs as intended. As a consequence, if both the high beam and low beam bulbs do not illuminate, the reduced light output can affect the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Approximately 204 units may be affected. Newmar will notify owners and DTNA dealers will modify the vehicles so that both beams illuminate when high beams are turned on, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Jan. 16.
