Issue

On certain trailers with a GVWR rating of 5,000 pounds or less, using a 2” A Frame coupler, the latch set nut on the underside of the locking mechanism on some of the couplers may have been over-tightened during manufacturing. If the external locking mechanism latch is not fully engaged, it could allow the coupler to disengage while the trailer is in transit. A towed unit separating from the towing vehicle could strike another vehicle, stationary object, or bystander, causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the A-Frame coupler, and repair as necessary.
