Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
FOREST RIVER BERKSHIRE 2011
Manufacturer: FOREST RIVER, INC.Mfr's Report Date: OCT 18, 2011
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 11V531000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Potential Number of Units Affected: 66
Summary:
 FOREST RIVER IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 BERKSHIRE MODELS 360FWS, 390BH, 390RB AND 390QS RECREATIONAL VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, THROUGH FEBRUARY 28, 2011, EQUIPPED WITH A CUMMINS ISX OR ISL DIESEL ENGINE. THE V-BAND CLAMP ASSEMBLY, PART NUMBERS Q187684, Q187685, AND Q187686, USED TO CONNECT THE INLET AND OUTLET CONE SECTIONS TO THE DIESEL OXIDATION CATALYST (DOC)/DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (DPF) INCLUDE A T-BOLT WHICH CAN FRACTURE AND FAIL WHEN SUBJECTED TO STRESS OR LOAD. A FRACTURE OR FAILURE OF THE T-BOLT MAY CAUSE THE CLAMP TO LOOSEN AND THE INLET OR OUTLET SECTIONS ATTACHED TO THE DOC/DPF HOUSING TO DISCONNECT.
Consequence:
 IF THE INLET OR OUTLET SECTIONS DISCONNECT, HOT EXHAUST GASES CAN VENT PRIOR TO EXITING THE TAILPIPE, CREATING THE RISK OF COMBUSTION AND A FIRE. IF BOTH CLAMPS FAIL, THERE IS A RISK IN SOME APPLICATIONS THAT THE DOC/DPF HOUSING MAY DETACH COMPLETELY, CREATING A ROAD HAZARD.
Remedy:
 FOREST RIVER IS WORKING WITH CUMMINS TO IDENTIFY AND NOTIFY OWNERS OF THE RECALL CAMPAIGN. REPAIRS
