      Highland Ridge recalls Ridge, Open Range, and Silverstar recreational trailers

      The frameless window glass panels may detach

      Highland Ridge RV is recalling 870 model year 2020 Ridge, Open Range and Silverstar recreational trailers.

      The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal hinge frame of the frameless crank out vent and egress windows may fail which would then allow the glass to detach and fall out.

      If the window glass detaches while the trailer is moving it could become a projectile, increasing the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      Highland RV will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the frameless windows for proper adhesive bond strength, replacing the windows -- as necessary -- free of charge.

      This recall was expected to begin June 15, 2020.

      Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling 24,037 model year 2020 CX-30 and Mazda3 vehicles.

      Republic Wireless recalls relay charging cables

      The cable can overheat and partially melt

      Republic Wireless of Raleigh, N.C., is recalling about 15,000 charging cables for relay screenless communication devices.

      The cable can overheat and partially melt, posing a burn hazard.

      The firm has received two reports of incidents of the charging cable overheating. No injuries have been reported.

      The recalled charging cables were sold individually and with some Relay Screenless Communication devices.

      They are three feet long with a USB Type-A male connector on one end and a charging head on the opposite end. The charging head has a 5 pin pattern (5 in-line “pogo” pins) that allows it to charge Republic’s Relay device.

      The charging head has a magnet that aids in mating the pins on the charging head with the contacts on the device.

      Affected charging cables do not have the Relay logo on the back of the portion of the charging head that connects to the Relay device. This recall applies only to cables sold with some Relay devices and cables sold separately from May 2018, through May 2019.

      After October 2018, Relay devices were manufactured and packaged with cables containing additional circuitry in the charging head to address the overheating risk.

      Relay devices packaged with recalled charging cables were sold at Relaygo.com, Target, and Amazon beginning in May 2018 for between $49 to $100.

      Individual recalled cables were sold on Relaygo.com for about $15.00 from May 2018 through May 2019.

      What to do

      Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charging cables and contact Republic Wireless for a free replacement charging cable. Republic Wireless is contacting consumers of affected products who have active accounts to provide free replacement cables.

      Customers who purchased a Relay device but do not currently have an active account can contact Republic Wireless to determine if they have an affected product and to obtain a free replacement.

      Consumers may contact Republic Wireless toll-free at (833) 832-0053, by email at support@relaygo.com, or online at www.relaygo.com/cableinfo.
