Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Starcraft Quest, and XL school buses manufactured June 1, 2015, to November 1, 2015, equipped with certain Transpec T6000, T6100, and T7000 series school bus stop arms. The affected stop arms have a reflective decal that may peel loose from the stop arm. As such, these stop arms fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 131, "School Bus Pedestrian Safety Devices."
Without a reflective decal, the stop arms would have reduced visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and their dealers will replace the stop arm blade assembly, free of charge. The recall began on February 4, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-800-348-7440 or the manufacturer of the stop arms at 1-800-951-7867. Forest River's number for this recall is 5-12222015-0125.
