  • 176 (2009) Forest River Cardinal fifth-wheels that fail to comply with the
    requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, “Tire Selection and Rims
    for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars.” Due to faulty scales in the production
    facility, the label for the cargo carrying capacity values is incorrect.
  • 58 (2010) Heartland Recreational Vehcless LLC Eagle Ridge fifth-wheels. The LP line
    for the kitchen slideout was improperly routed which allows the line to rub against the
    tire, damaging the LP hose and wiring.

    DWR and Ocean Breeze travel trailers for failing to comply with the requirements of
