New Safety Recall for Vibes.

I just received this in the mail today.

Thought I'd let others know.

Yeah I got mine yesterday as well. I found a little better detail of the recall from ForestRiver at this link below. It at least has some screen shots of what it looks like if you have trouble.

I thought it was funny that it is coming later in the year. Had to laugh a little since I got the letter the day after I put the cover on it.

I noticed that the propane line on my Vibe 308bhs is in between the Lippert electric jack and the frame. Has anyone else noticed this and should I be concerned about it?

Thanks, that makes it a little easier!

I'm heading out to my trailer later today. I'll see how mine looks.

After looking again, I see that the propane line is sandwiched between the electric jack and the underbelly. It is a few inches away from the frame where it passes under the jack. I guess the underbelly has enough give that the propane line doesn't get pinched by the jack.
