PhotoForest River is recalling 47 model year 2016-2017 Berkshire vehicles built on Freightliner Custom Chassis XCR chassis.

A battery cable mounting bracket may not have been installed correctly, as a result, the improperly routed and clipped battery cable can contact the frame rail, possibly chafing and short circuiting.
