The breakaway safety switch may be wired incorrectly

Forest River is recalling 4,397 model year 2018-2021 Wildwood, Salem, and model year 2021 Sonoma travel trailers.

The break-away safety switch may not be wired to constant power, which can cause the trailer brakes to not activate in the event of a trailer separation from the tow vehicle.

Failure of the brakes of the trailer to engage can result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will rewire the breakaway switch free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

Owners may contact Forest customer service at (909) 873-3777. Forest River's number for this recall is 67A-1230.
