Go to arfc.org website for recall info on your 3825fl.
Federal placards are wrong. If your unit was produced Nov. 20, 2015 and April1, 2016.
My 2016 produced October 2015 had load range E Marathon. Made the dealer swap for my load range G S637 Sailuns before we took delivery. To me trailer is too heavy for the load range E. When the sailuns wear out will replace with a 17.5 wheel and tire.

Tire placard is on the road side near the propane hatch. The manufacture date should be on one of the placards so you can check your build date and see if you fall within the Nov. 20, 2015 to April 1, 2016 time frame. My guess is your unit was built before Nov. ( like mine). Because of the 10 ply marathons.
The tires I had them swap out from my old trailer are 235 85 16 load range G.
However to put load range G on your 3825fl you would have to go to a different rim to handle the 110 psi the tires hold. I kept the rims I had on the old trailer.
The rims on your 3825fl with the marathons are probably only rated for 80 psi.
When I contacted forest river I was told I didn't fall under the recall because of the October build date. 1 month too early for the recall. I guess they decided to put G rated on in November.
Anything that weighs this much needs G or H rated tires IMHO.

If you post a picture of your rims I can tell you if you have the old style wheels rated to 80 psi or if you have the 110 psi rims. We just looked at a couple of 2016 Cardinals the other day (3850 and 3825) and they ordered them with Marathon tires. Not enough tire for either of those rigs.

Then you must have the Goodyear G614's as the Marathon's are only rated to 80 psi. The G614 is a dealer option and the better dealers know to order them with the better tires.

General info on recalls.

If your RV is under a recall you are suppose to receive information in the mail from RV company (if you are original owner) After a RV is re-sold then the RV dealer should file the appropriate perwork but IMO that seldom happens.

You can go to NHTSA web site and do search to see if your vehicle or tires or other components are under recall.

RE tires. All tires are suppose to be registered by selling dealer. When on new RV that would be the RV dealer responsibility. If you buy tires then the tire dealer is suppose to do that.

You can learn more about tire registration in my blog post on the topic.
