PhotoThor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling 229 model year 2019-2020 Magnitude and Omni motorhomes.

The seat recliner mechanisms may be missing the third pawl required for seat back strength, resulting in a loose seat back.

An improperly assembled recliner mechanism may have reduced strength and may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

Ford has notified TMC owners, and Ford dealers will inspect the seat structures and replace them, as necessary free of charge.

The recall began October 21, 2019.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332 or TMC customer service at (877) 855-2867. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000178.
