TRP supplies trailer camshafts, bushing kits


TRP is providing trailer camshafts and bushing kits designed to meet demands of heavy-duty brakes.

The trailer camshafts and bushing kits feature camshaft head and shaft splines induction-hardened for long life and durability, forged camshaft heads for precision-sizing and strength, and a nationwide 12-month warranty. They are offered in a variety of sizes for all makes.

Worn trailer camshaft bushings can also ultimately lead to an out-of-service violation.

Since 1980, motor carrier safety officials and industry representatives from the United States, Canada, and Mexico have worked together through the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) to develop uniform commercial vehicle inspections. CVSA developed protocols for inspections and the various criteria that warrant declaring vehicles out-of-service. The out-of-service criteria became the backbone of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s safety enforcement program: Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA). As a rule of thumb, an inspector can declare a truck or truck-trailer combination out-of-service when 20% or more of the service brakes don’t work properly.
