Chronology :

On February 5, 2024, the manufacturing plant was contacted by a customer that noticed the pin box was rated for less than the printed GVWR on the Federal Placard.

On February 6, 2024, the manufacturing plant requested photos of the pin box and its rating from the customer. Photos where shared with the manufacturing plant which indicated the pin box was under rated. The same day, Forest River’s Office of Corporate Compliance was notified of the concern.

On February 8, 2024, OCC communicated with the chassis supplier to help review if this model was built with the same pin box, or if the pin box was mistakenly installed (OEM or aftermarket).

On February 12, 2024, OCC confirmed that the model was specified manufactured with the incorrect pin box.

On February 14, 2024, after review of all other models by the manufacturing plant, another model was discovered.

On February 16, 2024, Forest Rivers Corporate Recall Committee voted to recall. A Stop Sale Notice will be issued immediately following the filing of this recall.
