Wabash National Corporation is recalling nearly 2,500 model year 2015-2016 Con-Gear Converter Dolly Trailers. In the affected trailers, the frame may crack on the counterbalance leg weld seam or the top plate.

The cracks may progress and result in the counterbalance leg detaching while the trailer is being used, possibly causing the counterbalance leg to be a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin around September 26, 2016.

Wabash will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the dolly for cracks, and add welds and weld plugs on the inboard side of the counterbalance legs. If welding will not resolve the issue than the dolly frame will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Wabash customer service at (765) 771-5404. Wabash's number for this recall is LEG201603.
