A defect in the power supply wire has led to the latest recall from Forest River.

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 Surveyor travel trailers and fifth wheels. In the affected vehicles, the power supply wire for the room slide mechanism may have been incorrectly installed such that it doesn't pass through a circuit breaker. Without the power supply wire being properly connected to a circuit breaker, an excessive power draw or electrical short may result in melted wires and an increased risk of a fire.

Forest River is recalling about 90 vehicles in connection with this defect. Affected models include SVT321BHTS, SVT33RETS, SVT32RLTS, SVT33RLTS and SVT32RETS.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and correct the power supply wire installation if needed. Damaged power supply wires will be replaced as necessary. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 7, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Forest River customer service at (574) 642-3119, extension 205.
