Summary:
      Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain 2018 Puma recreational trailers. The Federal Placards indicate incorrect tire load range and tire pressure "PSI" information. The placard states a tire size of ST205/75R15/D requiring 50PSI, however the installed tires are size ST205/75R15/C, requiring 65PSI. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims," and they also fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
Consequence:
      The incorrect tire information can cause the operator to over-inflate the tires, which can cause premature tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall began on December 4, 2017. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-642-0588. Forest River's number for this recall is 425-0560.
