Description of the Cause: New wire colors in the wiring harness led to the incorrect wire to be connected to the parking brake.
On 6/15/2020 During a test drive, the driver leaned on the jack extend button while vehicle was in drive and the leveling jacks began to deploy. The manufacturing plant began reviewing production data to determine vehicles affected.
On 6/19/2020 Forest Riverís Corporate Recall Committee voted to recall.
I wonder if the leveling panel was turned off when that happened.
