Default 181 Tiffin 2009-2013 Zephyr, Bus: cruise control problems

NHTSA recall:

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
TIFFIN / BUS 2009-2010
TIFFIN / ZEPHYR 2009-2011 2013

Manufacturer: TIFFIN MOTORHOMES, INC.
Mfr's Report Date: FEB 24, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V071000 N/A
NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CRUISE CONTROL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 181
Summary:
TIFFIN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2010 BUS, AS WELL AS CERTAIN 2009-2011 AND 2013 ZEPHYR RECREATIONAL VEHICLE CHASSIS EQUIPPED WITH AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE, PART NUMBER 2791-NN2E-001 OR 2791-NN2E-002. WHEN THE BRAKE IS APPLIED, THE CRUISE CONTROL MAY NOT CANCEL. ADDITIONALLY, THESE VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT AN INADVERTENT, MODERATE INCREASE IN VEHICLE SPEED UNTIL THE VEHICLE REACHES ITS GOVERNED SPEED AFTER THE CRUISE CONTROL IS SET.
Consequence:
A DRIVER MAY EXPERIENCE REDUCED CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE IF EITHER THE DRIVER ATTEMPTS TO CANCEL THE CRUISE CONTROL BY APPLYING THE BRAKE OR THE VEHICLE SPEED INCREASES AND THE DRIVER IS UNAWARE OF THE INCREASED SPEED, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
TIFFIN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE STEERING WHEEL SWITCH AND REPROGRAM THE MODULE, FREE OF CHARGE. TIFFIN HAS NOT PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TIFFIN AT 256-356-8661.
Notes:
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 HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
