RV Recalls


 
Recall No.: 2017-612
Company: Forest River
Models: 2018 Salem & Wildwood
Mfg. Recall No.: 27-0595
Canadian Units: 5
Description: On certain travel trailers, the certification tire and loading information placard does not contain correct tire size information. The labels incorrectly indicate a tire size as ST215/75R15/D, while the correct tire size should be ST205/75R15/D. This could result in the wrong tires being installed on the travel trailer, which would lead to poor towing/driving characteristics and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Forest River will mail a corrected certification label to current owners with instructions for proper placement. If owners are not comfortable installing the label themselves, they can take the label to a Forest River dealer for installation.



 
Recall No.: 2017-628
Company: Forest River
Models: 2016-2018 Berkshire
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 10
Description: On certain motorhomes, an incorrect circuit breaker may have been installed in the vehicles house distribution subpanel. The internal spring retention mechanism of the incorrect circuit breaker may not properly contact the subpanel, which could cause excessive heat in the circuit, increasing the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will install a new circuit breaker.



 
Recall No.: 2017-640
Company: Forest River
Models: 2015-2018 Cherokee
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 209
Description: On certain travel trailers, 110V and 12V wires may get pinched between the chassis and the body of the vehicle. This could result in a short circuit increasing the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will route the 110V and 12V wires away from any potential pinch point.



 
Recall No.: 2018-002
Company: Forest River
Models: 2018 Surveyor
Mfg. Recall No.: 37-0604
Canadian Units: 6
Description: On certain travel trailers, a 30 amp circuit breaker was incorrectly installed during manufacturing. Instead, a 15 amp circuit breaker should have been installed. With an incorrect amperage circuit breaker, the wiring of the breaker cannot manage the amp draw requirements, which could result in the wiring melting and increase the risk of a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will install a new replacement 15 amp circuit breaker.



 
Recall No.: 2018-004
Company: Forest River
Models: 2018 Prime Time Mfg Crusader
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 53
Description: On certain motorhomes, the furnace may not have been properly secured during the manufacturing process, allowing it to move freely. This could result in the misalignment of the air intake and furnace exhaust tubes. If the furnace starts up with misaligned intake and exhaust tubes, it could emit a burst of flame in the vehicle, which would increase the risk of fire. If the furnace moves while in operation, the exhaust fumes of the furnace could enter the vehicle. As a result, occupants could be exposed to carbon monoxide, which could lead to asphyxiation or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Correction: Dealers will install a bracket to secure the furnace.



 
Recall No.: 2018-031
Company: Forest River
Models: 2018 Cherokee Alpha Wolf
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 7
Description: Certain travel trailers may fail to comply with the requirements of CMVSS 108 - Lighting System and Retroreflective Devices. The vehicles may have not been equipped with reflectors, contrary to requirements of the standard. This could decrease vehicle conspicuity and potentially increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Vehicles will be fitted with the missing reflectors.



 
Recall No.: 2018-056
Company: Forest River
Models: 2018 Palomino Palomini
Mfg. Recall No.: 400-0612
Canadian Units: 95
Description: On certain travel trailers, the mounting bracket for the liquid propane (LP) bottle may have been incorrectly oriented. This could cause the bracket to break which could result in the LP bottle separating from the vehicle, creating a road hazard and increasing the risk of a propane leak. A propane leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will install a new LP bottle ring with a correctly oriented bracket.



 
Recall No.: 2017-625
Company: Grand Design RV
Models: 2017-2018 Imagine & Reflection Travel Trailers
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 465
Description: On certain travel trailers, the laminated plastic touch pad on the top of the electric tongue jack may crack and/or separate. This could result in water entering the internal circuitry of the touch pad, potentially causing unintended extension, or retraction, of the electric tongue jack. If this were to occur while the vehicle was in motion, it could result in loss of control and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will replace the “Smart Jack” electric tongue jack assembly with an updated version with improved water protection.



 
Recall No.: 2017-617
Company: KZ Recreational Vehicles
Models: 2014-2015 Durango Gold
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 6
Description: On certain motorhomes, the HSM Quad Steps rivets that hold the steps together may loosen and fail. If the rivets fail, the steps could collapse causing a person to fall resulting in injury.
Correction: Dealers will inspect and replace the rivets with shoulder bolts. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2015-124.



 
Recall No.: 2018-041
Company: KZ Recreational Vehicles
Models: 2017-2018 Durango Gold
Mfg. Recall No.: KZ-2018-01
Canadian Units: 10
Description: Certain travel trailers were built with sofas that may prohibit the visibility of the rear window exit label and/or restrict access to and the operation of the emergency exit window handle. In the event of an emergency situation, this could result in an occupant potentially having difficulty locating and operating the emergency window, which could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will replace the sofa back with one of a lower height.



 
Recall No.: 2017-619
Company: Newmar
Models: 2018 Bay Star & Bay Star Sport Class A Motorhomes
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 16
Description: On certain motorhomes, the front side marker lights are not connected into the wiring harness, which would reduce vehicle conspicuity at night. Additionally, if the headlight high beams are activated, only the high beam bulbs illuminate. The intention of the high beam function on the affected coaches is to have both the high beam and low beam bulbs illuminate together. Not having the required illumination of the road could reduce the driver’s visibility, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will connect the front side marker lights to the wiring harness, and repair as necessary to ensure the low beam bulb will turn on along with the high beam bulb during activation of the high beams.

Canadian Units: 212
Description: On certain motorhomes, there may be a loose electrical connection to the automatic transfer switch (ATS) that was not properly tightened.

Correction: Dealers will inspect the electrical connections and perform repairs as necessary.



 
Recall No.: 2018-037
Company: Newmar
Models: 2017-2018 Dutch Aire Class A, Ventana Class A & Ventana LE Class A
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 63
Description: On certain motorhomes, built on Freightliner Chassis, if the headlight high beams are activated, only the high beam bulbs illuminate. The intention of the high beam function on the affected coaches is to have both the high beam and low beam bulbs illuminate together. Not having the required illumination of the road could reduce the driver’s visibility, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Daimler Trucks North America authorized service facilities will repair as necessary to ensure the low beam bulb will turn on along with the high beam bulb.



 
Recall No.: 2017-579
Company: REV Recreation Group

Canadian Units: 12
Description: On certain motorhomes equipped with gasoline engines, the hydraulic lines for the vehicle’s levelling system were not properly secured, potentially allowing them to come into contact with the axle, or chassis drive train components.

Mfg. Recall No.: 171213REV
Canadian Units: 16
Description: On certain motorhomes, water may enter the 12V harnesses’ pin connectors due to a missing gasket and/or the location of the connector. If water were to enter the connector, an electrical short could result, which may result in uncommanded operation of the slide-out room while the vehicle is in transit. This could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect and if necessary, install a gasket for each affected harness pin connectors and reroute the wiring harnesses.



 
Recall No.: 2018-042
Company: REV Recreation Group
Models: 2017 Fleetwood Bounder
2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer
Mfg. Recall No.: 17S41
Canadian Units: 2
Description: On certain motorhomes, the antilock brake system hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU) may have missing valve block ball plugs. This could cause fluid leaks, or air ingress, during braking, potentially increasing brake pedal travel and/or stopping distances. This could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Ford dealers will inspect the HECU for missing plugs and replace as necessary.



 
Recall No.: 2017-608
Company: Triple E
Models: 2016-2018 Wonder
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 24
Description: On certain motorhomes, the passenger seat pedestal bolts may not have been properly tightened during vehicle assembly. In the event of a crash, the pedestal bolts may fail, which would not properly restrain the seat occupant and could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will inspect and ensure that the seat pedestal bolts are tightened to proper specification.



 
Recall No.: 2018-023
Company: Winnebago Industries
Models: 2017-2018 Grand Tour & Journey
Mfg. Recall No.: 147
Canadian Units: 6
Description: On certain motorhomes, a battery cable and hydraulic fluid line may not have been properly secured during vehicle assembly and could come into contact with either the driveshaft or exhaust.

Correction: Dealers will inspect the battery cables and hydraulic lines to ensure they are properly routed and secured and will repair as necessary.

Models: 2010-2012 Yaris
Mfg. Recall No.: SRC R49
Canadian Units: 24,151
Description: On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger frontal airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. As a result, if the vehicle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function. These issues could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Depending on the vehicle model, dealers will either replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator, or replace the airbag assembly. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected.
