Forest River is recalling 218 model year 2020 Freedom Express, Salem, Stealth EVO, Vibe, Wildcat Maxx, and Wildwood recreational trailers.

The emergency break-away switch may fail.

If the trailer separates from the tow vehicle, a failed break-away switch will not apply the trailer's brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the break-away switch free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin March 13, 2020.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at (503) 831-5410 or (574) 825-8205. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-1129.
