2010 Newmar Dutch Star Brake System Recall
 Newmar is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 Dutch Star and 2009-2010 Dutch Aire motorhomes, built on a Spartan chassis equipped with a Hendrickson independent front suspension. The front brake chambers may contact the upper control arm of the independent front suspension. Continued contact may result in damage sufficient enough to prevent the full release of the brakes. If the brakes do not fully release, as they drag, heat could be generated causing the brakes to engage even further.   

 As the brakes heat up, they may self-engage, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
