Forest River is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 XLR vehicles, models T29HFS, T31FDK, T31FQSL, T30FQSL, T21FQSL, T24FQSL, T24HFS, T27HFS, T28TQDL and T30HDS, manufactured October 20, 2014, to July 14, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the wiring at the electrical inlet used for connecting external AC power to the trailer may have been strained during the assembly process. As a result, the wiring may loosen at the inlet connector.
If the wires are not properly secured to the connector, the wires may arc, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will rewire the inlet to relieve the wiring strain and secure the electrical wiring connections, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2015. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0437. The Forest River recall number is 51-07302015-0068.
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.
