Forest River Inc. is recalling 22 2016-model year Rockport cargo box trucks and work trucks because of potential stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The trucks, manufactured from Dec. 8, 2015, to May 31, 2016, were built on GM chassis. Cycling the rear ramp in and out may cause the electrical connections on the fuel-sending unit to be damaged, resulting in a loss of fuel pressure, NHTSA said. Such a loss of fuel pressure could lead to an engine stall that increases the risk of a crash.

To resolve the problem, Forest River dealers will reinstall the loading ramp structure to give sufficient clearance. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Dec. 20. Truck owners can reach Forest River customer service at (574) 522-7599. Forest River's number for this recall is 29-10212016-0261.
