PhotoForest River is recalling 1,330 model year 2013-2017 Dynamax and Coachmen Pursuit recreational vehicles and 2016-2017 Freelander and Orion recreational vehicles.

 

The vehicles are equipped with shower curtains that may not adequately resist catching fire in the presence of an ignition source. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 302, "Flammability of Interior Materials."

 

A flammable shower curtain may further fuel a fire, increasing the risk of injury.

 

What to do

 

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shower curtains with curtains made with fire retardant, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 16, 2016.

 

Owners may contact Dynamax customer service at 1-574-262-3474, Pursuit customer service at 1-574-825-8305 (east of the Mississippi) or 1-574-825-8317 (west of the Mississippi) and Freelander or Orion customer service at 1-574-825-8602. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-07152016-0225.
