New Recall!

An NHTSA Recall was found for your vehicle.


NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V465000

Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.
Model Year: 2015
Make: FOREST RIVER
Model: FORESTER
Recall Date: 20160627
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TAIL LIGHTS

Potential # of
Units Affected: 1999

Summary:

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 Forester motorhomes manufactured June 10, 2014, to May 25, 2016, Sunseeker motorhomes manufactured April 4, 2014, to May 25, 2016, 2015-2016 Solera motorhomes manufactured February 28, 2014, to September 17, 2015, and 2016 Isata motorhomes manufactured October 30, 2015, to May 26, 2016. Water may leak into the electrical module that controls the vehicle taillights, brake lights, turn signal lights, clearance lights and marker lights, making the lights inoperative. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence:

If the rear brake lights fail to illuminate, following motorists may not realize that the vehicle in front of them is stopping. Inoperative taillights, clearance lights and marker lights will make the vehicle less visible to others. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash.

Remedy:

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin August 18, 2016. Forester, Solera, and Sunseeker owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-206-7600. Isata customers should call 1-574-262-3474. Forest River''s number for this recall is 51-06012016-0206.

Both of my LED taillights had an inch of standing water inside the fixtures after 3 days of rain on our 1450 mile trip - I was wondering what to do about this, but if they are being recalled, I'll see what FR/the dealer will do about replacing them.

Thanks for the info!
