Forest River Recall 17V835

I have been watching this section and have not seen any correspondence regarding the February 2018 recall on furnace tie down issues for some Prime Time Crusaders and Sanibels. This seems like a pretty serious problem for units to roll out of the manufacturing plant with the furnace not attached to the unit.
My unit came unattached and only by luck I found it before I used my furnace. I secured the furnace them I received the recall and had my dealer verify the repair per the recall.

Not expecting anything, just thought there would be more discussion. Maybe it's not as big of a problem as I though.

Do you have a picture of the bracket? I was behind my furnace the other day and noticed a L-bracket that wasn't secured to anything. Not sure if it was supposed to be, though.

I did not what to imply its not a problem and I think it warrants all of use to take a look next time we do maintenance just in case. Thanks for bringing it up.

From what I was told it's not a bracket they are concerned with it's the tiedown strap. (See free floating tiedown strap photo attached)
