Member ID: ORF-4699
Manufacturer: Highland Ridge RV
SUMMARY:
Highland Ridge RV (Highland) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Highlander, Mesa Ridge, Roamer, and Journeyer travel trailers manufactured April 7, 2014, to January 11, 2016. The affected vehicles are equipped with safety chains on the A-frame that are rated for 11,700lb instead of being rated equal to or greater than the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the travel trailer.
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event the main trailer connection fails, the weight of the trailer can break the safety chains if the chains are not strong enough, allowing the trailer to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Highland will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing safety chains with chains that have a 16,200lb rating, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Highland customer service at 1-260-768-7771. Highland's number for this recall is 9904277.
NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
