What's the Problem?
This recall affects 2013-2015 Jayco Fifth Wheel Seismic and 2015 Pinnacle trailers, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The recalled travel trailers were incorrectly assembled with 6,000 lb capacity axles instead of the 7,000 lb axles the trailers were designed to be equipped with, NHTSA said. The underrated axles may result in the trailer being overloaded, potentially causing drivers to lose control of the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Jayco is notifying owners and dealers will replace the axles and leaf springs, free of charge. This recall began on March 11, 2020.
Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheel Recall
Jayco is recalling 2021 Jayco Eagle travel trailers which were built with a 4 1/4 inch spring hanger instead of the proper 5 1/4 inch spring hanger, reducing tire clearance. "Reduced tire clearance can increase the risk of tire blow out, which can cause loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of an crash," NHTSA said. Jayco is notifying owners and dealers will install the correct 5 1/4 spring hangers, free of charge. This recall began in March 2021.
