Recall No. 16V386000
Report Receipt Date: Jun 1, 2016
Component(s): EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE

SUMMARY

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Glaval Universal, Primetime, Sport, Titan, Titan II, Entourage, Legacy transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to April 29, 2016, 2015-2016 Elkhart ECE3, ECE4, ECG4 transit buses manufactured October 24, 2014, to September 9, 2015, and 2006-2016 Starcraft Bus Allstar, Allstar XL, Starlite, Quest, Quest XL, and StarTrans Senator II, Senator II HD, and PS/2 vehicles manufactured January 1, 2006, to April 29, 2016. These vehicles are equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts by Ricon. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack. Additionally, the lifts are equipped with folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position.

CONSEQUENCE

If the platform side plates crack or the platform mounting fails from out-of-position bearings, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the vehicle's doors are opened, the platform may fall onto the lift operator, increasing their risk of injury.

REMEDY

Forest River will notify owners, and Ricon dealers will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks. Any damaged parts will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on July 7, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River's customer service at 1-800-348-7440, or Ricon customer service at 1-818-267-3000. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-05132016-0197.

NOTES

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall No. 16V860000
Report Receipt Date: Nov 29, 2016
Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INSTRUMENT PANEL

SUMMARY

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 StarTrans PS2 transit buses manufactured April 26, 2016, to October 11, 2016, built on a Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) chassis and equipped with ICU3s instrument clusters and hydraulic brakes. In the event of a brake malfunction, these clusters may illuminate the Brake System Malfunction telltale/indicator lamp with the word "PARK" instead of the word "BRAKE". As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays," and number 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems."

CONSEQUENCE

If "PARK" illuminates instead of the word "BRAKE," the driver will be unaware of a braking issue or malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY

Forest River will notify owners, and DTNA will replace the ICU3s instrument clusters with new clusters, free of charge, when new clusters are available. Owners are to be notified of this issue beginning on January 18, 2017. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-3112 and DTNA customer service at 1-800-385-4357. Forest River's number for this recall is 5-11212016-0274.

NOTES

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
