Incorrect Tire PSI on Federal Placard/FMVSS 110

The incorrect Placard could cause the operator to underinflate the tires, possibly causing tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2019 Coachmen Viking recreational trailers, models T17BHS and T17FQS. The Federal Placard states that the tires have an inflation pressure of 65 PSI, when the tires actually require 75 PSI. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”
