Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.Report Receipt Date: JAN 07, 2013
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 13V005000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Potential Number of Units Affected: 451

 Forest River is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Berkshire and Charleston diesel motorhomes. The chassis are equipped with connectors for diode jumpers that may come loose, resulting in an open circuit. Two circuits are affected: The one that disengages the cruise control with brake pedal use, and the one that illuminates the brake lights with brake pedal use.

 Failure of the cruise control to disengage when the brakes are applied may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Without the brake lights illuminating when the brakes are applied, the driver's intent is not communicated, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River Berkshire Recalled for brake and cruise control defects
