A fuel station and fuel burning appliance may be too close for comfort on some Forest River RVs.

Forest River is recalling certain model year 2015 2015 XLR Nitro XLT31FQSL recreational and configured with a garage in the rear of the trailer and one model year 2015 XLR Hyperlite XLR31FDK recreational vehicle equipped with a front deck for carrying motorcycles and quad runners.

If the fueling station nozzle is fully extended and pulled as far forward as possible, the hose may be too close to the fuel burning appliance, which could cause fuel vapors to ignite.

Forest River will notify owners affected by the recall. Dealers will either relocate the fueling station box and hose nozzle to a safe distance or remove it completely.

For more information owners can contact Forest River customer service at (574) 642-0437.
