Came across this email, sent from Peugeot to the main Motorhome manufacturers. Steering problem sounds a bit dodgy I would have thought "resistance to manoeuvring"
to be pretty serious. If this email is genuine, then It seems that they have known about the problems for a while Have these recalls happened?

PEUGEOT RECALL NOTIFICATION
Dear Mr. Sample
Registration Number: VIN Number:
Within the Peugeot quality programme it has been identified that there may be a problem with the steering mechanism on your vehicle which could cause resistance when manoeuvring. It is therefore necessary for an operation to be carried out on the steering rack.
At the same time, some vehicles will also have certain key components reinforced against water ingress, to prevent possible operating faults in the long term.
This work will of course be completed free of charge.
Please contact your Dealer’s service reception to make an appointment for the work to be carried out. It would help to have this letter with you when making the call as it contains all the information they will require.
If you need any assistance in locating your nearest dealer, please either use the dealer locator feature on Peugeot.co.uk | Homepage
or contact the Recall Helpline on 0845 600 4400.
If you are no longer the owner of the vehicle, please complete and return the attached Change of Owner form included in this letter.
This recall is being carried out under the Code of Practice on Vehicle Safety Defects and will be monitored by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency of the Department for Transport.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your co-operation.
Head of Customer Communications
