PhotoForest River is recalling two model year 2017-2018 Berkshire Coach Ultra UL1912 and UL1913 motorhomes.

Water and contaminants may get into the block heater cable’s splice connector causing corrosion and damage.

When the heater is plugged in, prolonged corrosion could cause a resistive short, increasing the risk of overheated or melted wiring which can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and Ford dealers will disable the vehicle’s engine block heater cable free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin July 24, 2019.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Forest River’s number for this recall is 78-1032.
