Forest River recalls its 2015-2016 XLR Trailers for a defect in the Wiring may Loosen at Inlet and Arc
Aug 28, 2015
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 XLR vehicles, models T29HFS, T31FDK, T31FQSL, T30FQSL, T21FQSL, T24FQSL, T24HFS, T27HFS, T28TQDL and T30HDS, manufactured October 20, 2014, to July 14, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the wiring at the electrical inlet used for connecting external AC power to the trailer may have been strained during the assembly process. As a result, the wiring may loosen at the inlet connector.
If the wires are not properly secured to the connector, the wires may arc, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will rewire the inlet to relieve the wiring strain and secure the electrical wiring connections, free of charge. The recall began on August 25, 2015. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0437. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-07302015-0068.
