Summary:
 Forest River is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Berkshire and Charleston Motorhomes, equipped with an IOTA ITS-50R transfer switch. These switches may experience heat related failures when exposed to elevated electrical loads associated with RV use in higher ambient temperatures. The failure may lead to an increased risk of electrical damage to other appliances.
Consequence:
 Continued use of the vehicle without replacing the transfer switch increases the risk of fire, personal injury, and property damage.
Remedy:
 Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Iota ITS-50R transfer switch
