Issue

Issue:
On certain refrigerated van trailers, the axle nut retaining clips may not have been inspected after assembly. If the clip is not installed correctly, a wheel end (hub, wheel and tires) could separate from the trailer.

Safety Risk:
The separation of a wheel end could increase the risk of a crash. Wheels that separate could also strike another road user.

Corrective Actions:
Great Dane will notify the owner by mail and instruct them to them to inspect the axle nut retaining clips and install new ones, if necessary.
