Issue

On certain trailers, the spring brake check valve may not have been manufactured correctly. This could result in a delay in the application of the spring brakes, which after decoupling from the tractor, could increase the risk of a trailer rollaway, potentially causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Affected valves will be corrected by way of a repair kit.
