DEFECT #1 - SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:SUPPLY:RESERVOIR/TANK


Posted on: 2019-12-18
Description
Maintainer corporation of iowa, inc.  (maintainer) is recalling certain 2015-2019 custom bodies heavy rescue emergency response vehicles equipped with a pneumatically-controlled automatic tire chain system.  The air pressure control lines may not be pressure-protected.

Corrective Action
Maintainer has notified owners, and spartan dealers will inspect the routing of the control lines, rerouting them into the auxiliary air reservoir as necessary, free of charge.  The recall began december 23, 2019.  Owners may contact maintainer customer service at 1-800-831-8588 or spartan customer service at 1-800-543-5008.
