Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling 392 model year 2020 Mallard, Prowler, Trail Runner and Wilderness trailers with a bumper-mounted spare tire carrier.
The U-bolt that secures the spare tire may break, and cause the spare tire to detach during travel.
If both U-bolts break, the carrier and spare tire can detach from the unit, resulting in an increased risk of injury and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Heartland will notify owners, and dealers will replace the spare tire mounting U-bolts free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin July 14, 2020.
Owners may contact Heartland customer service at (877) 262-8032.
