Goshen Coach is recalling certain buses as follows: GC II, model years 2006-2012; GCII-550, model years 2007-2009; G-Force, model years 2011-2012; Pacer, model years 2006-2012; Pacer LS, model years 2008, 2010, and 2013; Pacer LTD, model year 2012; and Sentinel, model year 2011. The 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.
Goshen Coach is working with Ricon to notify owners. Ricon will provide a supplemental cover kit with instructions, free of charge. Owners may contact Goshen Coach at 1-574-970-6300 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
