  • DRV Suites recalls 1,701 for aluminum wheels

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- DRV Suites (DRV), formerly Doubletree RV, is recalling 1,701 model year 2008 and 2010-2011 Select, Mobile and Elite Suite RVs manufactured from June 12, 2007, through Oct. 27, 2010 and equipped with disc brakes. Due to the paint applied to the aluminum wheel and hub face, the wheel may become loose.

    This situation can result in the wheel/rim moving, shearing of the wheel studs and the wheel coming off of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

    DRV will notify owners, and dealers will remove the paint from the hub face and the back of the wheels free of charge. Owners may contact DRV at 1.574.457.6472.

    Owners may also 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.

    Yes it will and did, sheared those studs right off. We had just pulled away from a red light and at about 15-20 mph the right rear wheel came off and rolled up to a cop car in a store parking lot. I will say that DRV (Tom Peck) did an excellent job of taking care of the problem.

      Message from Tom Peck dated today, 2/14/2011

      "mailing of the notification letters, repair procedures etc. has not gone out and won’t for several weeks. NHTSA only approved everything Friday 2/10/12 and nothing can be completed until that approval.

      You will receive info in the mail in the near future.

      In the meantime check your wheel lug nut torque as advised in your owner manual and the label on your pin box and you will be fine."
