Eldorado National is recalling certain model year 2012 Aerotech 240 buses manufactured May 2012, through October 2012. The affected buses are equipped with a Ricon manufactured wheelchair lift which has an optional armored pendant cable. The cable may have been installed such that it doesn’t clear the wheelchair lift and without a protective cover, or a misinstalled protective cover.
The cable may contact the power lug at the base of the wheel chair lift causing a short circuit that could result in a fire.
Eldorado National is working with Ricon to notify owners. Ricon will provide a supplemental cover kit with instructions, free of charge. Owners may contact Eldorado National at 1-785-827-1033 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
