Boat Trailers That Could Separate from Vehicle in Motion Recalled
Mastercraft Boat Company is recalling certain model year 2015 boat trailers. The swing tongue bolt on the affected boat trailers may fail while the trailer is being towed, causing it to disengage from the vehicle.
If the trailer disconnects from the tow vehicle, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Approximately 1,740 boat trailers that were manufactured between April 1, 2014 and March 11, 2015 are impacted by this recall.
Mastercraft will notify all known owners of the recalled boat trailers, and local dealers will replace the swing tongue bolt and related hardware, as necessary, free of charge.
