Chronology :

February 7, 2024, Forest Rivers Office of Corporate Compliance (“OCC”) received multiple Vehicle Owner Questionnaires (“VOQ”) from NHTSA’s Office of Defects Investigations (“ODI”). This led Forest River to review warranty claims and complaints of the “L Bracket” used to mount the LPG Tank. OCC did not detect any trends in warranty claims or complaints, however the committee agreed that the nature of the safety concern related to the possible LPG Tank detachment was in line with ODI’s concerns.

February 9, 2024, OCC presented the information to the Corporate Recall Committee, and it was voted to recall.
