Forest River is recalling more than 100 model year 2017 Coachmen Viking recreational trailers. The affected vehicles may be missing wire clip that retains the gas lift roof struts to the mounting bracket.

Without the wire retaining clip, the roof lifting strut could detach from the mounting bracket, allowing one side of the roof to drop down quickly, increasing the risk of injury.

The recall is expected to begin on October 31, 2016.

Forest River will notify owners of the affected RVs, and dealers will install a wire clip to secure the strut, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Forest River customer service at (269) 467-8281. Forest River's number for this recall is 120-08302016-0240.
