WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling 50 2017 Rockwood and Flagstaff recreational trailers because the slide room mounting bracket on these vehicles may contact the driver side front tire, potentially damaging it and causing tire deflation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
Tire deflation can increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a rearward offset mounting bracket head to keep the slide room bracket from touching the tire, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 27. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 574.642.2640. Forest River’s number for this recall is 10-02152017-0328.
