Riverside RV recalls 146 units for missing reflector

WASHINGTON — Riverside RV is recalling 146 2017 and 2018 Whitewater and Mt. McKinley travel trailers that were manufactured without rear-facing reflectors and have non-reflective tail lights, the National Traffic Safety Administration reported.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

Without rear-facing reflectors or reflective tail lights, the vehicle may have reduced visibility from behind, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy

Riverside will notify owners, and dealers will install reflective tape on the rear bumper below the tail lights, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May. Owners may contact Riverside customer service at 260.499.4578.
