2019 FOREST RIVER RAINIER - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:BATTERY

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2014-2019 Forest River Salem, Wildcat Maxx, Wildwood, Vibe, and Rainier recreational trailers. The break-away safety switch may not have been wired to a constant power source, and, as a result, the switch may be inadvertently disconnected from the trailer house battery causing the brakes to not engage if the trailer detaches from the tow vehicle.

  • Hazard
    If the trailer brakes cannot engage if the trailer detaches from tow vehicle, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a new wiring harness to reroute the wiring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-503-831-5410. Forest River's number for this recall is 22/30-0824.
