Story by RVBusiness
The following is the latest RV recall list compiled by the National Highway Administration (NHTSA).
Forest Inc. is recalling five 2019 Forest River Salem and Wildwood travel trailers. The clearance lights on these vehicles may not work due to being incorrectly wired. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.
Newmar Corporation is recalling 308 units of its 2018-2019 Newmar Essex, Ventana LE, Ventana, London Aire, and Mountain Aire vehicles. The brake caliper mounting bolts may not have been sufficiently tightened.
• Keystone RV Company is recalling 152 units of its 2018-2019 Keystone Raptor recreational trailers. The quick disconnect rubber propane line may be incorrectly routed, allowing the outside grill to be stored while the fuel supply is still on and the flame is still lit.
• Forest River Inc. is recalling 142 units of its 2019 Rockport vehicles. The Federal Placard may indicate an incorrect Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR), which can allow the vehicle to be overloaded. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567 Certification.
