Forest River recalls some Surveyor trailers for fridge fire risk

Forest River is recalling certain 2018 Surveyor travel trailers, models SVT248BHLE and SVT248BHLE-OR. The refrigerator in the slideroom may have been installed without an air cycling fan to cool the refrigerator parts, which can cause the refrigerator cooling tubes to fail.

If the refrigerator overheats, the cooling tubes may fail, increasing the risk of a fire.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a fan assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 17, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-573-642-3119. Forest River’s number for this recall is 3747-0667.

    Issue. Forest river installed and 18 ft.³ whirlpool. Didn’t follow manufacture specs and left absolutely no room for airflow circulation . The shell of the refrigerator around the freezer is very warm very hot to the touch. Customer relations at Forest River say the coach would not have left the factory if it wasn’t put in correctly to manufactures specs. In addition the customer relation rep said they would do nothing especially that I am not the original owner. It doesn’t matter in my eyes the insulation was incorrect and is putting this coach and many others I’m sure at risk of a fire hazard. This is not my words this is the words from three different people at Whirlpool Corporation.
