Forest River is recalling five model year 2017 Flagstaff and Rockwood trailers equipped with two air conditioners. It was found that there may be excess slack in the wiring harness used in the air conditioner that contains a heating element. If the wires are not tied back and properly secured away from the heating element, the wires may contact the heating element, melt and short, increasing the risk of a fire.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a remedy kit to constrain the wires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 5, 2016. Owners may also feel free to contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-5164. Forest River’s number for this recall is 10-10062016-0254.
