Forest River is recalling 416 model year 2016-2017 Forest River Berkshire, model year 2012-2017 Forest River Charleston, model year2013-2015 Coachmen Cross Country and Pathfinder, and model year2014-2015 Glaval Synergy motorhomes built on Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) chassis.

The power steering hose on the affected vehicles may be routed incorrectly, and, as a result, the hose may rub against the power stud on the starter motor, possibly causing electrical arcing and a power steering fluid leak.

Electrical arcing in the presence of leaking power steering fluid can increase the risk of a fire.

Forest River will notify owners, and Freightliner dealers will reroute the power steering hose to provide proper clearance, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 15, 2018.
