Summary: Forest River is recalling certain model 2011 and 2012 trailers manufactured from August 11, 2011, through April 11, 2012, equipped with Carlisle Toy Hauler series trailer wheels. These wheels were manufactured with machine dimensions for the application of a center cap and the application of steel lug inserts that were not controlled to the required specifications. As a result, the wheel may not be tightened to the proper torque during the mounting process.
Consequence: If the wheels are not tightened to the proper torque, the wheels could loosen, leading to wheel separation, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash. A detached wheel also becomes a road hazard.
Remedy: Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wheels free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during December 2012. Owners may contact Forest River at 1-574-389-4600.
