Summary:
FOREST RIVER IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 AND 2013 SURVEYOR TRAVEL TRAILERS, MANUFACTURED FROM AUGUST 12, 2011, THROUGH APRIL 6, 2012. ON CERTAIN FLOOR PLANS, THE LIQUID PROPANE (LP) GAS LINE WAS ROUTED AND FASTENED ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME RAIL. WHEN THE TRAILER HITS A BUMP, THE POSITIONING OF THE LP GAS LINE MAY ALLOW THE “U” BOLT ON THE AXLE TO PINCH THE LINE BETWEEN THE MAIN RAIL AND THE “U” BOLT.

Consequence:
THE LINE MAY BREAK AND LEAK L.P. GAS WHICH MAY CAUSE FIRE, INJURY, OR DEATH.

Remedy:
FOREST RIVER WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL RE-ROUTE THE LP LINE, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FOREST RIVER AT 1-574-389-4600.
