Navistar Recalls 249 for Electrical System

RECALL

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Navistar Inc. is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 Beaver, certain model year 2009-2011 Monaco, and certain model year 2009-2011 Holiday Rambler RVs manufactured from Oct. 25, 2007 through Aug. 26, 2010, equipped with Iota ITS-50R 50 amp automatic transfer switches. The Iota ITS-50R 50 amp automatic transfer switch bus bar and/or electrical connections may be inadequate to handle the electrical load.

Electrical overload of the transfer switch could lead to overheating, and a fire, increasing the risk of property damage, personal injury or death.

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Iota ITS-50R transfer switch free of charge. Owners may contact Navistar at 1.800.448.7825.

Navistar's recall number is 12504.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY: 1.800.424.9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Only in America can a company recall an item that is installed on model A but the same item on unit B does not get recalled. I did notice mention of units built in 2007. Were these units that were built by Monaco but sold by Navistar? If IOTA still exist then it does not matter if they stopped making RV parts they should still be responsible. I checked our Dynasty and thankfully Monaco chose to use a PD combo surge protector and transfer switch.

It looks to me that Iota is still around. Iota Engineering

I spoke with an engineer at Iota a few months ago and was told they are still in business but no longer making switches for the RV market.

Does anyone know what Navistar is using for a replacement switch??
