SUMMARY:
Forest River is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Rockwood, Windjammer, Vlite and Flagstaff travel trailers manufactured February 3, 2012, through February 4, 2013. When an affected trailer hits a large bump or pot hole, the trailer tire may contact the bottom of the floor.
CONSEQUENCE:
As a result, the tire may become damaged and possibly blow out which may cause a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will add a lift kit between the frame and the axle mounting brackets, free of charge. Owners may contact Forest River at 1-574-825-7178.
Yes, saw that, but, the first post seems to indicate a problem with the axle to frame welds. Wondering if the same or a separate issue.

Thats the most recent recalls for axles at this time. I would imagine OP either purchased a used trailer or has a trailer that falls in that recall and just found out about it. OP never mentioned what year/model of FW they have. Also the dealer could be using that excuse to keep the trailer to complete the service...Camping Worlds not the best in customer service after the sale.
