Forest River is recalling certain 2019 Forest River Prime Time recreational trailers. The stove is not isolated from the furnace return air, which potentially causes an inverted flame on the cooktop.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a panel to separate the stove top from the furnace return air feed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 29. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-862-3001. Forest River’s number for this recall is 48-0755.

Potential number of units affected: 435

Forest River also is recalling certain 2016 to 2018 Forest River Prime Time recreational trailers. The Federal Placard incorrectly states that the tire pressure should be 65PSI when the correct tire pressure is 80PSI. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

Forest River will notify owners and will provide a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 29. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-862-1025. Forest River’s number for this recall is 48-0756.

Potential number of units affected: 302

Forest River will also recall certain 2019 Forest River Wildwood and Salem recreational trailers. The break-away safety switch may have been improperly wired such that it is not connected to a constant power source, thereby possibly preventing the trailer brakes from automatically applying if the trailer were to separate from the tow vehicle.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a new wiring harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Aug. 4. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-534-4058. Forest River’s number for this recall is 69-0764.

Potential number of units affected: 64

Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2016 to 2018 Thor Gemini and Compass RVs built on a Ford chassis and equipped with a trailer tow module. Water can enter the tow modules and corrode the wiring causing issues such as rapidly flashing turn signals, loss of instrument panel display, an electrical short and possibly the deployment of seatbelt pretensioner.

Ford has notified owners, and Ford dealers will add a drainage hole in the driver’s door stepwell and incorporate a fuse into the vehicle’s wiring harness, free of charge. The recall began on June 19. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1-877-855-2867. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000154.

Potential number of units affected: 158

Triple E RV is recalling certain 2017 to 2018 Wonder RVs equipped with a trailer tow module. Water can enter the tow modules and corrode the wiring causing issues such as rapidly flashing turn signals, loss of instrument panel display, an electrical short and possibly the deployment of seatbelt pretensioner.

Triple E has notified owners, and dealers will add a drainage hole in the driver’s door stepwell and incorporate a fuse into the vehicle’s wiring harness, free of charge. The recall began on June 27. Owners may contact Triple E customer service at 1-877-992-9906 or Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Triple E’s number for this recall is CA#9030-1.

Potential number of units affected: 9
