Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling 172 model year 2016-2017 trailers manufactured September 28, 2015, to April 30, 2016.
The safety chains located on the A- frame are rated for 11,700 pounds instead of chains that are rated equal or greater than the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).
In the event the main trailer connection fails, the weight of the trailer could break the safety chains. This would allow the trailer to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Heartland will notify owners, and dealers will replace the chains, free of charge. The recall began on June 2, 2016.
Owners may contact Heartland customer service at 1-877-262-8032.
