Wabash Recalling Trailers Due to Spring Brake Valve Issue

Sept. 30, 2016
Wabash National is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 van trailers manufactured January 1, 2014, to May 10, 2016, equipped with certain Bendix SR5 spring brake valves that may have been improperly machined, which may cause a delay of application of the spring brakes while parking, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Wabash National is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 van trailers manufactured January 1, 2014, to May 10, 2016, equipped with certain Bendix SR5 spring brake valves that may have been improperly machined, which may cause a delay of application of the spring brakes while parking, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

If there is a delay of the spring brake application, the trailer may roll away after it has decoupled from the tractor, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Wabash will contact owners and provide a remedy kit, complete with instructions, to repair any affected SR-5 trailer relay valves, free of charge. Wabash issued an interim notification to owners on August 10. The recall began on September 6. Owners may contact Wabash Customer Service Department at 1-765-771-5300.

Owners may also contact the NHTSA Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
