Some Coachmen Catalina trailers recalled for cooktop fire risk

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2022 Coachmen Catalina travel trailers. The panel that separates the furnace from the cooktop was not sealed, which could result in an inverted cooktop flame.

Dealers will seal the furnace from the cooktop, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 1, 2021. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-825-8657. Forest River’s number for this recall is 203-1434.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

Well that doesn’t surprise me a bit. As a former Forest River employee,in Elkhart,Indiana. Which is the RV capital of the world. There’s gonna be alot of issues with the rv’s they are manufacturing, it’s not just recently either. They are making any where from 25 to 35 rvs a day n rolling them out the door.thats from start to finish. They have line roll every 15 minutes. What that means is, the chassy comes in the door thats what the rv is built on. And it rolls down the line stopping on the way at different stations. Each station has its job to install parts on it. Then it moves to the next station to have more parts installed on it. By the time it gets to the end of the line and is going out the door , you now have a fully manufactured rv. Problem is, that line moves from one station to the next every 15 minutes. Which is mandatory. You can NOT build a quality rv when your moving them that fast thru the stations. Belive me I know, I have worked in the rv industry for over 30 years
