Issue

Certain travel trailers were manufactured with axles that may not provide the proper tire sidewall clearance to the travel trailer wheel well or slide room cross shaft. If the proper tire sidewall clearance is not maintained, the tire could rub on the trailer wheel well or slide room cross shaft and result in a tire failure. A tire failure could result in a loss of control of the vehicle resulting in a crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, modify the wheel well and/or slide room cross shaft to allow for proper clearance. In addition, axle hub face spacers will be utilized, as needed, to assure that the minimum allowable clearance is achieved.
