A motorhome manufacturer is issuing a recall for vehicles assembled without the proper equipment.

Forest River, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Evo, Salem, Sandstorm, Shockwave, Stealth, and Wildwood recreational trailers. The affected vehicles were mistakenly not equipped with a carbon monoxide detector.

If occupants are not warned elevated carbon monoxide levels, they are at an increased risk of injury.

Forest River believes that more than 700 motorhomes were manufactured without the proper detectors.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will remove the existing Liquid Propane (LP) Detector and install a combination LP/carbon monoxide detector, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 2, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Forest River customer service at (909) 873-3777, extension 53.
