NHTSA Issues Forest River Recalls

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued the following vehicle recalls:

Forest River is recalling certain 2020 Freedom Express, Salem, Stealth EVO, Vibe, Wildcat Maxx and Wildwood trailers. The emergency breakaway switch may fail. In the event of trailer separation from the tow vehicle, a failed breakaway switch will not apply the trailer’s brake, increasing the risk of a crash.

The remedy is that Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the break-away switch free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 13, 2020. The number of potentially affected units is 218. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at (503) 831-5410 or (574) 825-8205. Forest River’s number for this recall is 51-1129.
