Fuel rail recall???

2020 Entergra Anthem. Driving along and emissions warning comes on. Thought it was the dreaded DEF problem. Then check engine emblem comes on. Engine loses power and surges. Second check engine symbol comes on but goes off after awhile. 120 miles from Amarillo. Called Entergra told to call Sparton. Spartan has only one place in Amarillo. They are over two weeks out. Found a truck shop who would identify fault codes 450hp. Found problem with fuel rail. Found out there was a recall on it but as we just purchased coach werenít notified. Donít know what happens if I try to drive it. Trying to locate replacement recalled part. Glad we got a new one to get away from problems of old one?? First long trip

We just received our recall notice. Called Cummins and received an appointment for September. Tech I spoke with said if I have no smell of diesel or see diesel under the engine on the ground, and given the miles I already have on the coach, likely ok. What they check for is a fitting on the fuel rail that goes into the engine. If it leaks then you have the potential for an engine fire. That said not going to advise if you should drive or not, but suggest you call Cummins, not Spartan. When I called, seemed to indicate I could get in right away if I had an issue, an since you’re on a trip they might bump you up. Best wishes.

Curious is this an NHTSA or Cummins recall? Do you have the recall number? One final question, how far back does it go?

Hi just found it on another post
"NHTSA Recall No. 21E032 Cummins Campaign #C2423 for the fuel rail assembly that may develop leaks, which may result in an undetected prolonged diesel fuel spray. Cummins Inc has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exits in certain L9 and ISX12 engines manufactured between January 2,2017 and October 16,2020. Just posting to make everyone a where of the recall"
The good news i think I'm all set though I need to verify it with the ESN.

I went to my recall appointment today. Cummins very professional and forthcoming when I asked about potential repair should a fault be found. Said they have yet to find a fault on all the Rv’s they have inspected. Currently have 50000 miles on our unit with no smell of diesel or leaks. So when I went today, September 15, I asked if they did find a fault, what was the path forward. Was told if a fault was found, the rv became inop and would need the identified fuel rail components replaced before the rv could be moved. Asked if they had the parts in stock, and response was no, likely take weeks where the rv would remain in their lot. Given my current situation, know I am accepting some minimal risk, but unwilling to take the recall inspection until supply catches up. Given my situation, I passed on the recall inspection until a future date. My only suggestion is when you take it in for the inspection ask the questions about repair time should an issue be found. I strongly suspect it won’t be same day or next, likely weeks. Or hopefully you’ll be one of the many fortunate and have a favorable recall inspection. But at least you’ll have the info to make an informed decision on timing.

Glad yours checked out good but as you pointed out you need to make sure you're prepared to take downtime if the fault is confirmed for several weeks or more before bringing it in though the risk of waiting as an alternative could lead to a fire. Now I see why I've read that some folks are installing like an little mini-ansul fire suppression system in their engine bays. I'm glad I'm out of the window for this recall with my MH but that's a good point for any other recalls. Thanks for the insight. I wish that could be applied to having warranty work but they won't know what to fix until it's in there. Right now I'm having some warranty work done of several things from the Patio Awning (new Motor), Rear Slide (new motor), Slide Top (re-alignment) and wiper blade arm failures (new arms) everything was in within the first 2 weeks except the arms from Tiffin. It's been over a month with Tiffin slipping last weeks delivery date to today. Hope it shipped I leave in 2 weeks for a long trip to Pigeon Forge.
