Trailer recall issued by NHTSA

| 8/6/2002

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued a recall notice for Peerless trailers manufactured from May 1998 through December 1999.

On certain trailers, cracks can develop in the channel supports of the king pin assembly, according to the notice. If cracks form and are not detected, they can grow larger and eventually fracture the channel supports, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the channel-style king pin assembly with an I-beam style king pin assembly. Owner notification was expected to begin in May or June 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Peerless at (870) 236-7753.
