Good information to know Bob. Thanks for posting.

Here is a snippet:

Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2012-2016 Berkshire, Charleston, Legacy, Dynamax, XLR, Continental Cargo, Work & Play, Shockwave, and Coachmen Brookstone recreational vehicles and toy haulers, equipped with Atwood on demand water heaters, models OD45, OD50, and OD50CW, manufactured January 2, 2012, to August 13, 2015. The affected water heaters have a water and gas valve that may cause the water heater to overheat the water in the hot water supply tap. CONSEQUENCE:

The overheating of the water may result in the release of steam, possibly causing the operator is to scald themselves and increasing the risk of injury. REMEDY:

Forest River will notify owners. The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin January 12, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-800-348-7440, or Atwood customer service at 1-574-264-2131. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-11092015-0107.
