WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling 17 2017 Wildwood recreation trailers, model WDT197BH and Salem recreation trailers, model SMT197BH, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
The lower sidewall vent for the refrigerator was improperly installed, allowing propane gas to enter the vehicle. A propane leak into the interior of the vehicle in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire or explosion.
