Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is recalling certain model year 2015 refrigerated van trailers, model VS2RA, manufactured Dec. 16, 2013, and equipped with certain Meritor EX225L2, EX225L+ or Bendix ABD22X axles.
The affected axle assemblies have calliper bolts that may not have been properly tightened, allowing the calliper mounting bolts to back out and the calliper to detach from the axle flange. If the calliper detaches from the axle flange, braking performance would be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Utility Trailer has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the calliper bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began Nov. 4, 2015. Owners may contact Utility Trailer customer service at 818-965-1541 with recall number 15E083, or Meritor customer service at 866-668-7221.
