Manufacturer: FOREST RIVER, INC. 	Mfr's Report Date: JUL 13, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V341000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 850
Summary:
Forest River is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Berkshire and Charleston Motorhomes, equipped with an IOTA ITS-50R transfer switch. These switches may experience heat related failures when exposed to elevated electrical loads associated with RV use in higher ambient temperatures. The failure may lead to an increased risk of electrical damage to other appliances.
Consequence:
Continued use of the vehicle without replacing the transfer switch increases the risk of fire, personal injury, and property damage.
Remedy:
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Iota ITS-50R transfer switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2012. Owners may contact Forest River at 1-574-295-8749.
Notes:
Forest River's recall campaign number 40-712. Owners may contact the National Highway Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
