Forest River, Inc., is recalling certain model year 2017 Coachmen Viking recreational trailers manufactured May 31, 2016 to August 23, 2016. The affected RVs may be missing a wire clip that retains the gas lift roof struts to the mounting bracket.
Without the wire retaining clip, the roof lifting strut could detach from the mounting bracket, allowing one side of the roof to drop down quickly, increasing the risk of injury.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a wire clip to secure the strut, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 31, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-269-467-8281. Forest River’s number for this recall is 120-08302016-0240.
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.
