Forest River, Inc., is recalling 2,454 model year 2019 Flagstaff and Rockwood travel trailers. The breakaway safety switch may be improperly wired, and as a result the trailer brakes will not apply in the event that the trailer disconnects from the tow vehicle.
The trailer’s inability to apply the brakes in the event of a separation can increase the risk of crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a new wiring harness to maintain the supply of power to the brake system, free of charge. The recall began February 25, 2019. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-2640. Forest River’s number for this recall is 10B-0943.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
