Wheelchair Lift may Raise too High

If the wheelchair lift platform stops above the vehicle floor, the wheelchair user can tip inwards toward the vehicle when exiting the lift, increasing their risk of injury.



Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2012-2016 Elkhart Coach ECII, Glaval Apollo and Sport buses, 2017-2018 Glaval Commute buses, 2012-2018 Glaval Entourage, Titan and Universal, StarCraft Bus Allstar and Starlite buses, 2013-2018 Glaval Legacy, Primetime and Titan II buses, 2015-2016 Allstar XL MVP buses, 2014-2016 StarCraft Prodigy buses, 2014 StarCraft Quest and Starquest buses, 2017 StarCraft Quest buses and 2016 StarCraft Senator II buses. These vehicles are equipped with certain Ricon S-Series and K-Series Titanium Wheel chair Lifts that have a wheelchair lift positioning input cam that may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle's floor height.



Forest River will notify owners, and Ricon dealers will replace the wheelchair lift positioning input cam, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2018. Owners may contact Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-0852.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
