Forest River recalls Coachmen Freedom Express recreational trailers

The brakes may not engage if the trailer detaches from the tow vehicle

Forest River is recalling 69 model year 2019 Coachmen Freedom Express recreational trailers.

The break-away safety switch was not wired to a constant power source and, as a result, the switch may be inadvertently disconnected from the trailer house battery and cause the brakes to not engage if the trailer detaches from the tow vehicle.

If the trailer brakes cannot engage if the trailer detaches from tow vehicle, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River has notified owners, and dealers will correct the break-away safety switch wiring, free of charge.

The recall began September 11, 2018.

Owners may contact Coachmen Freedom Express customer service at 1-574-825-8657. Forest River's number for this recall is 220/320-0825.
