Forest River recalls some fifth wheels: wrong weight placard

Forest River is recalling certain 2019 Prime Time Crusader fifth-wheel trailers, model CSF315RST. The Federal Placard on these vehicles indicate that the axles have a weight capacity of 6,000 pounds when their actual capacity is 5,100 pounds.

The incorrect Federal Placard may result in the axles being overloaded, causing a loss of control, and increasing the risk of a crash.

Forest River has notified owners, and will provide replacement Federal Placards, free of charge. The recall began on July 30, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-862-1025. Forest River’s number for this recall is 48-0801.

I wrote to you some time ago about my 2015 Forest River fifth wheel and the list of problems I had to deal with. One of which was the screws pulling out of the floor allowing the dining table, that sits in the slideout, to come loose. I hope I have finally solved the problem by drilling through the flooring to anchor the table using “T” bolts that I purchased at the local hardware store for a couple bucks.
