On certain model fifth-wheel travel trailers, the tires may have inadequate clearance with the trailer slide-out actuator bracket and may be damaged while towing under certain road conditions. This could result in a blow out which could lead to a crash resulting in injury and/or property damage. Correction: To be determined. Owners are advised not to tow their trailers in the interim.

I think it was on here actually and gave the details on mfg date period affected

For the Transport Canada Data base
.
If you run the search using Prime Time it does not show the recall that started the thread - it comes up with the awning one.
.
If you search ( Road Safety Recalls Database) using Forest River it is the first one on the list
.
The WildCat one from Jan 30 is scary as well "the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) indicated on the compliance label may exceed the combined load carrying capacity of the trailer axles as well as the trailer hitch pin box"

They also have a recall on 2012 2013 Rockwood/Flagstaff for axle clearance issues. Called my dealer and he is running my SN for my fifth wheel.

Just went out to look at our crusader. Couch/dinnette slide looks like it's the only one. There's a bracket 1"-1 1/4" away from the top if the tire and it's on an angle so I imagine if your traveling along and hit a pothole and things bounce it will spear the top of your tire.
