      Briggs & Stratton Corporation of Wauwatosa, Wis., is recalling about 3,000 fuel tank replacement caps made by Kelch/Bemis.

      The vehicles may not have a carbon monoxide detector

      Forest River is recalling 144 model year 2019 Forest River East to West travel trailers.

      What to do

      Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a battery-powered carbon monoxide detector, free of charge.

      The recall is expected to begin in October 2018.

      Owners may contact Forest River customer service at (574) 264-6664 extension 50008. Forest River's number for this recall is 500-0855.

      The axle bearings may burnout or cause the hub to overheat

      Jayco is recalling 416 model year 2019 Jayco White Hawk, Jay Flight, and Jay Flight SLX travel trailers.

      The recall is expected to begin November 16, 2018.
