The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Forest River is recalling certain 2021-2022 Salem, Wildwood, and Ozark travel trailers. The fresh water tank may dislodge from the vehicle and fall to the ground when full or overfilled. A tank falling to the ground while in transit can become a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,168 units are affected by the recall.
- Forest River is recalling certain 2022-2023 Coachmen Beyond, Galleria, and Nova recreational vehicles, equipped with certain Multiplex Electronic Control Modules (ECM). The ECM software may cause the awning to unintentionally extend or retract when the vehicle is parked. An awning that unintentionally extends or retracts increases the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 962 units are affected by the recall.
- Great Dane Trailers is recalling certain 2023 Everest and Champion trailers. The retaining clip in the brake pad retaining assembly may be loose or could detach, loosening the brake pad. A retaining clip or bracket that detaches can damage the brake pad, reducing brake performance, damage a tire valve, causing a flat tire, or become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,439 units are affected by the recall.
- Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2021-2023 Alpine, Avalanche, 2020-2023 Fuzion and Impact travel trailers. The hydraulic leveling leg foot pads may become loose and separate from the vehicle. A foot pad that separates during transit can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 9,678 units are affected by the recall.
- Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2021-2022 Crossroads Redwood, Dutchmen Voltage, and Yukon trailers. The U-bolts on the axles may have been improperly tightened, causing the bolts to loosen and the axle to slide. A sliding axle can result in a loss of vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 271 units are affected by the recall.
- Lightning eMotors is recalling certain 2022 FT3 and FE4 vehicles. The digital instrument panel may fail to illuminate the "BRAKE" and "ABS" warning lights when a low brake fluid error or an ABS system error is detected. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards number 101, "Control and Displays" and 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems." The driver may not be warned of low brake fluid or an ABS malfunction should the warning lights fail to illuminate, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 226 units are affected by the recall.
