Default Coachmen Galleria - Incorrect Federal Placard

RECALL Subject : Incorrect Federal Placard/Part 567
Report Receipt Date: FEB 18, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V094000
Component(s): EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 23
All Products Associated with this Recall: 2016 Coachmen Galleria

Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2016 Coachmen Galleria motorhomes manufactured from October 30, 2015, through February 15, 2016. The Federal Placards on the affected vehicles incorrectly lists the number of seatbelts as zero. Additionally, the placards did not factor in the fresh water capacity in the vehicle weight calculation and the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is missing from the label. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

CONSEQUENCE:
Without the GVWR listed on the label, the operator may overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 22, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service 1-574-825-8628. Forest River's number for this recall is 225-02102016-0134.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Someone was obviously asleep when creating the placards.
