Dutchmen recall on 245RKS


Dutchmen, Forest River issue RV recall notices
May 3, 2013 by Russ De Maris | Filed under Misc., Safety.
Two recreational vehicle manufacturers are recalling units for a similar problem. Both Forest River and Dutchmen have tire labeling issues that could cause problems for users.

Forest River, Inc. is recalling 173 model year 2013 Shasta Revere model SHT27DB, SHT30BH, SHT27BH, SHT26TB, and SHT27KS trailers manufactured Sept. 4, 2012, through April 10, 2013. These vehicles were manufactured with incorrect tire load rating and pressure information on the Federal Certification Tag and Tire Information Tag. Thus, these trailers fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, “Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars.” The incorrect tire pressure information given on the Federal Certification Tag and Tire Information Tag may lead to the tire being overinflated, resulting in sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify owners and send corrected labels. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact Forest River at (574) 825-7178.

Dutchmen Manufacturing, Inc. is recalling 10 model year 2013 Dutchmen 245RKS recreational vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.” On these vehicles, the Federal identification tag lists the wrong Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and the wrong Gross Axle Weight Rating. Incorrect tag information could result in overloading of the vehicle, causing tire or axle failure, resulting in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dutchmen will notify owners and mail replacement labels with corrected information, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2013. Owners may contact Dutchmen at (574) 537-0700.
