Recall No.: 2019-003
Company: Airstream
Models: 2019 Base Camp
Mfg. Recall No.: 99-03-16
Canadian Units: 6
Description: The tire information printed on the Compliance label and Tire Placard is incorrect. The information printed was for 235/55R18 Load Range D tires with 80 psi, when it should have been for 235/75R15 Load Range D tires with 51 psi. The use of a tire that is overinflated, or of the wrong size, could cause a tire failure, or poor towing/driving characteristics, that may increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Corrected labels will be sent to affected customers and dealers for installation.
Recall No.: 2019-048
Company: Forest River
Models: 2019 Flagstaff & Rockwood
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 272
Description:

On certain travel trailers, the break-away safety switch may not be properly wired. If the house battery switch is turned off, the break-away switch will lose power. If the trailer separates from a tow vehicle, the trailer brakes would not self-apply. If the trailer break-away switch does not work properly, there could be an increased risk of a crash.

Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to install a new wiring harness for the break-away safety switch.
Recall No.: 2019-059
Company: Forest River
Models: 2019 Flagstaff & Rockwood
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 13
Description: On certain travel trailers, the latches that hold the front, rear and side bunks closed could fail. This could cause the bunks to open while the trailer is in motion. If the bunks open during transit, a change in trailer handling could create an increased risk of a crash.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have improved latch fasteners installed.
Recall No.: 2019-062
Company: Forest River
Models: 2019 Columbus
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 2
Description: On certain fifth wheel travel trailers, the bolts that attach the pin box and chassis assembly may not be properly tightened. If the bolts vibrate loose, the pin box could detach from the trailer. A pin box that detaches from the trailer while towing creates a risk of a crash.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take the trailer to a dealer to have the pin box bolts inspected and replaced as required.
Recall No.: 2019-031
Company: Heartland
Models: 2019 Prowler & Trail Runner

Canadian Units: 13
Description: The information printed on the Compliance label and Tire Placard is incorrect. The information is for ST225/75/R15 Load Range E tires with 80 PSI (552 KPA). The label should list ST225/75/R15 Load Range D tires with 65 PSI (448 KPA). Using a tire that is overinflated, or of the wrong load rating, could cause a tire failure, or poor towing/driving performance. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Correction: Corrected labels will be mailed to owners. If an owner is not comfortable installing the labels, a Heartland dealer can install them.
Recall No.: 2019-014
Company: Keystone

Description: On certain travel trailers, the tires may come in contact with the rear floor support. If this were to happen during travel, it could damage the tires and cause poor vehicle handling. A sudden change in vehicle handling, or a tire failure, could increase the risk of a loss of control that may result in a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have the affected floor support modified to allow for additional clearance for the tire. The tires also should be inspected for any damage.
Recall No.: 2019-073
Company: Keystone
Models: 2019 Bullet
Mfg. Recall No.: 19-345
Canadian Units: 59
Description: On certain travel trailers, the spare tire carrier mounted to the rear wall may not have adequate support. This could cause the tire and carrier to separate from the trailer.

Company: BMW
Models: 2007-2013 X5,  2008-2014 X6
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 20,532
Description: On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants, or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function.
Correction: Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have the passenger-front airbag module replaced. Note: The Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. This recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk. It is expected that all airbag inflators will be replaced before their function would be affected.

This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants, or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function. If the vehicle is involved in a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the airbag inflator could rupture and create a risk of injury.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have an inspection performed. If a Takata airbag inflator is found, then the driver-front airbag module will be replaced. Note: The Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly.
