Vehicle Make / Model:   Model Year(s):
     FOREST RIVER BERKSHIRE   2010-2012
     FOREST RIVER CHARLESTON   2010-2012
Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.Report Receipt Date: JAN 07, 2013
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 13V005000NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CRUISE CONTROL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 451
Summary: 
  Forest River is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Berkshire and Charleston diesel motorhomes. The chassis are equipped with connectors for diode jumpers that may come loose, resulting in an open circuit. Two circuits are affected: The one that disengages the cruise control with brake pedal use, and the one that illuminates the brake lights with brake pedal use.
Consequence: 
  Failure of the cruise control to disengage when the brakes are applied may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Without the brake lights illuminating when the brakes are applied, the driver's intent is not communicated, increasing the risk of a crash.
