RV recall: Sewer holding tank in Puma could explode from trapped methane gas

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling some 2021-2022 Puma travel trailers.

Remedy
Dealers will properly vent the black wastewater-holding tank, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed November 17, 2021. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-642-0606. Forest River’s number for this recall is 420-1425.

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