A potential fire hazard is prompting the latest recall from Forest River.

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Starcraft All Star XL, 2013 Starcraft All Star, and XLT transit buses. The affected vehicles may have an improperly routed engine grid heater power feed cable which can result in the cable contacting the metal edge on the cab. This defect may cause an electrical short, increasing the risk of fire.

Forest River believes that only 32 vehicles are impacted by this flaw.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a cable tie to provide proper clearance for the engine grid heater power feed cable, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2015.

Owners can contact Forest River's customer service at (574) 389-4600.

The company is no stranger to issuing recalls, racking up quite a list over the past few months.
