WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling 67 certain 2017-2018 Berkshire and Charleston recreation vehicles built on Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) RV chassis, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
In these vehicles, the power steering hose may be improperly routed causing inadequate clearance between the hose and power stud. As a result, the hose can rub the power stud causing arcing and a power steering fluid leak. Arching in the presence of a power steering fluid leak under high pressure could increase the risk of a fire, NHTSA warned.
Forest River will notify owners, and FCCC dealers will reroute the power steering hose for proper clearance, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 21. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 574.295.2117, or FCCC customer service at 800.547.0712. Forest River’s number for this recall is 40-01182017-0311.
