Forest River Recalling Trailers Manufactured Without Furnace Vent

Report Receipt Date: MAR 18, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V156000
Component(s): EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 200
Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.
SUMMARY:
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year SolAire trailers manufactured July 1, 2014, to August 31, 2014. The affected vehicles may have been manufactured without an exterior furnace vent causing exhaust fumes to be vented into the trailer. Additionally, the lack of a furnace vent may result in a heat buildup around the furnace.
CONSEQUENCE:
Exhaust fumes inside the trailer may result in carbon-monoxide poisoning, increasing the risk of occupant injury. A heat build up, increases the risk of a fire.
REMEDY:
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install an exterior furnace vent in any affected trailer that does not have one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-389-4600. Forest River’s number for this recall is 400-03032015-0016.
NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
