2020 Forest River Frameless Window Recall

Just recvd this notice today, Aug.13th, 2020. Anyone know what to look for exactly to inspect ourselves in mean time until we can bring to a dealership?

Forest River is recalling 732 model year 2020 Cedar Creek, Columbus, Flagstaff, Coachmen Apex, Palomino, Rockwood & Sunseeker recreational vehicles, and Palomino soft and hard-side truck campers and Real-Lite Truck Campers.
The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal hinge frame of the frameless crank out vent and egress windows may fail which would then allow the glass to detach and fall out.

If the window glass detaches while the vehicle is moving it could become a projectile, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.

What to do
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the windows for proper adhesive bond strength, replacing the windows -- as necessary -- free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin August 3, 2020.

Owners may contact Rockwood & Flagstaff customer service at (574) 642-8943, Cedar Creek customer service at (260) 593-4000, Sunseeker customer service at (574) 206-7600, Coachmen Apex and Apex Nano customer service at (574) 358-0401, Palomino customer service at (269) 432-3246, Columbus customer service at (574) 821-1487 or Lippert customer service at (574) 537-8900.
