Forest River is recalling more than 1,400 model year 2014-2015 Coachmen RV Cross Country and Encounter recreational vehicles, and 2014-2018 Coachmen RV Mirada and Mirada Select recreational vehicles equipped with the residential refrigerator option instead of the standard refrigerator. The unused, but powered, wiring for the standard refrigerator was left with exposed wire ends.
If the energized positive and negative wires make contact, they may short circuit and possibly melt, increasing the risk of fire.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will disconnect the positive and negative wires from the battery, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on August 21, 2017.
Owners may contact Forest River at 1-574-825-8212. The recall number is 310-06212017-0455.
