This is why it is important to report safety issues to your appropriate gov. organization, they do get things moving and the manufacturer has to fix things properly. Take a look at GM right now.

FOREST RIVER issued a recall on the CRUSADER model

It wouldn't be so bad if it was a rounded corner but it's thick metal with a 90 degree sharp edge on it. You hit a big enough bump at 60 mph that thing has to take a chunk out of the tire. Maybe time to get the grinder out and round that edge

I did check the awning recall but I'm not built in that time frame so good there!

Yeah the more I look at the pic it looks like that corner tab should of been cut off. The point of it is about one inch from tire tread. Dangerous!

B&B what model do you own and are you on the list? My Rockwood is 2012. I guess people have been adding lift kits for certain units I know I have about 3 fingers clearance between the wheel and wheel well. If you are in a recall. I thought that you had to be notified of the recall?.......

We have to rely upon the Transport Canadian database? --- where is the notification for the US owners? How do they notify and when ?
