Forest River recalls RVs for undersized LP lines

WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling five certain 2017 Palomino Columbus recreational vehicles equipped with the package to install an optional generator, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The liquid propane (LP) supply hose for the generator may be too small, and, as a result, the stove may not have a sufficient supply of propane to keep the burner(s) lit, NHTSA indicated.

If the burner(s) cannot stay lit, after the flame extinguishes, propane may continue to flow into the vehicle, increasing the risk of a fire or explosion when the stove range is reignited, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct propane supply lines, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 5. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 574.825.3161. Forest River’s number for this recall is 410-0201207-0317.
