Forest River recalled engine brake

WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Charleston vehicles manufactured Sept. 16, 2013, to Dec. 10, 2015 and assembled on a Freightliner chassis built by Daimler Trucks North America.

The throttle pedal position sensor on the affected vehicles may not return to zero, causing the engine brake to suddenly not activate as expected, reducing the vehicle’s deceleration ability.

A sudden loss of an engine brake without warning on a motorhome may lead to a reduced brake capacity, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
