Forest River is recalling nine model year 2018 Crossfit vehicles, models CFB22CF, CFB22CFEB and CFB22DF, built on Ford Transit chassis equipped with a trailer tow module.
Water can enter the tow modules and corrode the wiring causing issues such as rapidly flashing turn signals, loss of instrument panel display, an electrical short and possibly the deployment of seatbelt pretensioner.
An electrical short can increase the risk of a fire. Turn signal, instrument cluster or seatbelt pretensioner problems can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River has notified owners, and Ford or Lincoln dealers will add a drainage hole in the driver's door stepwell and incorporate a fuse into the vehicle's wiring harness, free of charge.
The recall began on February 27, 2018.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-825-8590 or Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Forest River's number for this recall is 225-0647.
