Forest River Recalls Announced

Three Forest River recalls announced as follows:

Forest River, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2016 Shasta Airflyte 16 and Shasta Airflyte 19 trailers manufactured September 26, 2014, to August 17, 2015. The affected vehicles may have insufficient clearance between the tire and the wheel well at the top of the tire tread and also at the inner sidewall.

If there is insufficient tire clearance, the tire may rub, resulting in sudden tire failure which could increase the risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a new axle that provides the proper clearance between the tire and the wheel well, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on October 26, 2015.  Forest River’s number for this recall is 53-08282015-0082. The NHTSA Campaign Number is 15V552000.

Forest River Inc. is also recalling certain model year 2016 Shasta Airflyte 16 and Shasta Airflyte 19 trailers manufactured September 26, 2014 to August 17, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the rear exit window glass may come loose and fall out due to poor adhesion.

If the rear window glass detaches, it could fall onto the road and be a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trailers to verify that the windows are properly secured. Any window that fails the inspection process will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Forest River’s number for this recall is 53-08282015-0081. The NHTSA Campaign Number is15V553000.

In addition, certain model year 2009-2016 Forest River Cherokee and Vengeance recreational trailers manufactured May 16, 2008, to September 14, 2015. The wiring harness for the trailer’s lights, electric brakes, battery charging and many of the interior 12V fixtures may have an insufficient ground wire.

With an insufficient ground wire, the wiring harness may overheat, increasing the risk of fire. Additionally, the ground wire failure would result in the loss of the trailer’s external lights and electric brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trailer wiring harnesses, and upgrade the ground wires, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 18, 2015. Forest River’s recall number is 17B-0918-2015-0090. The NHTSA Campaign number 1s 15V589000.
