Forest River recalls 23 RVs for incorrect axle shackle that may result in tire damage

WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling certain 2019 Forest River East to West travel trailers, model 27KNS. Incorrect axle shackles may have been installed on these vehicles, allowing the tires to contact the floor or wheel well while moving.


Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a taller equalizer to the suspension to add length to the shackle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-264-6664 extension 50008. Forest River’s number for this recall is 500-0856.
