3 Associated Documents

Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 Coachmen 2150LE Prism motor homes manufactured July 2011 to May 2014. Due to the welds being in an improper location, the liquid propane (LP) tank support braces may not be secure, allowing the LP tank to drop and fall off the vehicle while in transit. CONSEQUENCE:

If the LP tank drops or falls off the vehicle while in transit, there is an increased risk of fire or explosion. REMEDY:

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a repair kit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during October 2014. Owners may contact Coachmen customer service at 1-800-353-7383. NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
