How'd you do that?

Seriously, my Pursuit 31BD that I bought in September is a 2016 model year (built on a 2015 Ford chassis which is not particularly relevent) so I'm assuming (hoping?) I'm unaffected by this recall.

I just read the info on the NHTSA website. A total of 35 vehicles - that's for all models involved, is the entire population of this problem. The Safety Recall Report 15V-203 has all the detail. The screws in question are supposed to be case hardened, but ended up being "hardened clear through". the build dates are from Mar 5 thru Mar 23, 2015. As of Oct. 15, 8 of the 35 have been fixed.

NHTSA Recall

Regardless of what year or model, if you have the cable slide system (Accuslide) check the screws that attach the standoff brackets to the slide. If any of the screw heads have popped off you have a problem. About half of mine on the bedroom slide had popped off. The LR slide was OK but they were all replaced.

Kevin Stratton, Warranty Manager for Georgetown / FR3. did get back to me with further info, that my 2016 FR3 30DS is not part of the recall at this time. the first email was inaccurate due to some confusion about my info.
That was fast response by Kevin, makes me feel better about my decision to purchase from Forest River.

THIS IS NOT A FOREST RIVER RECALL, it is a recall from the slide manufacutor! So yes it will go by the company that installed their system, but not FR issue!

Well the NHTSA lists it as a Forest River recall. And the letter explaining the recall details is from Forest River. The bolts are bad, but Forest River sold the final product. That is how it works.

Here's the long website link I found today:

2015 FR3 FR30 | Safercar | National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

The document RCLRPT-15V203-2721.doc lists it as a FR recall (probably within the 1 year warranty). I've attached a copy. As stated above, a very limited number of vehicles involved - 35.

Recalls are recalls, warranty status doesn't matter.
