New FR3 Recall

We just received the following recall on our 2016 30DS. I am confused to what ladder which the recall references. Has anyone else received this notice and do you understand the issue ? Thanks. Jim

Recall

I'm pretty sure they're referring to the entry stairs. We have a 2016 FR3 30DS and have had our stairs worked on twice already due to this issue. However, we haven't received a letter yet.

I sent a note to Forest River yesterday and see their attracted response. This recall is only directed to the 28DS model and I received the recall in error.

"Thank you for letting us know about the recall letter. Unfortunately our recall department listed all FR3 models on the recall. The only model that should be on it is the 28DS model. I am sorry about the confusion and please disregard the letter.

Thanks,

The recall is for the roof access fold up ladder on the 28DS model, the 30DS does not have a fold up ladder. Forest River accidently sent the recall out to all FR3 owners.
Doh!

Recall NHTSA #16V828

As mentioned the recall is for the folding ladder on the 28DS FR3 2105-2017.
It does also include Columbus Fifthwheel, Spartan Toyhauler, and the 2016 XLR Toyhauler. These models have the Christianson Industries Fold-up Ladder.

Not sure about that.. we just bought off the lot with no ladder attached. We bought a nice telescopic ladder that works great and doesn't take up much room to store.
