SUMMARY:
Thor Motor Coach (Thor) is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 Windsport, model year 2006-2010 Magellan, model year 2007-2013 Hurricane, model year 2008-2009 Valencia, model year 2009-2013 Serrano and model year 2011-2013 A.C.E motorhomes. The motorhomes are equipped with an RV Custom Products Battery Control Center (BCC) which may experience a failure while the motorhome is in motion.

If the BCC fails, all power may be lost to the motorhome chassis, including all lighting, making the vehicle very difficult to operate, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Thor will notify owners, and dealers will rewire the BCC free of charge. A notification schedule has not yet been provided. Customers may contact Thor at 1-877-855-2867. Thor's recall campaign number is RC000077.
