Issue

Issue:
On certain trailers, the fifth-wheel coupler plate may crack. These cracks may be visible in the corners of the coupler plate underneath the gooseneck during an inspection. If the coupler plate cracks entirely, the trailer may disengage from the tractor.
Note: This recall affects trailers built with a 14-inch king pin setting and ¼-inch coupler plate.

Safety Risk:
A trailer that disconnects from the tow-vehicle creates the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions:
The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to have the fifth-wheel coupler plate replaced.
