Forest River recalls some Palomino trailers: LP tank may detach

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2018 Palomino PaloMini trailers. The mounting bracket for the single liquid propane (LP) bottle may break allowing the LP bottle to detach from the vehicle.

If the LP bottle detaches from the vehicle, there is an increased risk of injury or crash.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a new LP bottle ring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 22, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-269-432-3246. Forest River’s number for this recall is 400-0612.

    In February of 2013, 500 miles down the road from picking up our brand new 2013 Dutchmen Rubicon we descovered the heads had been twisted off of 3 the 4 self tapping screws holding the dual LP bottle ring on.
    The 3 missing heads were covered with rust indicating some time had lapsed and the 4th screw was loose because it had been stripped out.

    Our trailer was full of self tapping screws of different sizes all over it that were twisted off.

    Would have been nice to get the recall before the black tank dropped out due to the same issue. We figured it was a blessing we only had one screw loose πŸ™‚ Not sure if it’s healthy are not we can laugh about it now.

    Just for grins the other day my wife and I took a walk through 3 of the 2018 floor models (trailers & 5th wheels) at our local RV dealer. Hoping to see what’s new and different.
    After having 4 years of experience now dealing with total lack of quality control found in our rig it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the same lack of quality control is still very much alive and well 4 years later. And the really sad thing is you don’t have to crawl around under anything to see it. πŸ™

    I can only think of one response to this:
    YGTBKM!! (That’s the clean version.)
    Is workmanship this bad and are quality control standards this poor to allow something like this to be produced?
