Exclamation 2019 and 2020 R-Pod Recall Info

All,

Another member of the forum, GL1800Rider, saw this recall info and passed it along to me. Seems like FR had a wiring issue that could be a serious problem.

From RV Pro here is the info:

Forest River is recalling certain 2019 to 2020 R. Pod travel trailers. The wire for the refrigeratorís spark igniter may have been connected to a breaker that permits a current higher than the wire can handle.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will move the wire from the 30-amp circuit to the designated 15-amp circuit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 19. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-3119. Forest Riverís number for this recall is 80-1011.
Potential number of units affected: 1,346

See Here for the article.

I called FR and I'm one of the "lucky" ones in the affected VIN range. If call FR have your VIN handy as they'll need it to check if your R-Pod is in the recall.

I let my dealer know about the recall this morning and they'll be checking out our 180 in the next couple of days...

Mine was one of the incorrectly wired units... The good news is my dealer, Three Way Campers in Marietta, GA, performed the recall this week so we're good to go again... It's great to have a local dealer that offers excellent support!

This came up on my feed and I am not an RPod owner, but had to X2 about Three Way Campers. That is our dealer and they are excellent. I am thankful to not experience the horror stories from other dealers about sales, service, warranties, etc. They make it easy! Can't recommend enough.

I've used Three Way for over twenty years now. We've bought motor homes and travel trailers from them. They are without any doubt one of the best businesses I have ever used. They have always provided excellent customer service from Sales to Service. I can't recommend them enough to anyone looking for a reputable, honest dealer...

My recall notice arrived in the "snail mail" this afternoon. I've attached it as a .pdf for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.
