January 6, 2016

Defective brakes are prompting a recall from Great Dane Trailers.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Reefer semi trailers equipped with certain Meritor EX225L2, EX225L+, or Bendix ADB22X axles. The affected axle assemblies have caliper bolts that may not have been properly tightened, allowing the caliper mounting bolts to back out and the caliper to detach from the axle flange.

If this occurs, braking performance would be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

Great Dane is including more than 60 trailers in this recall.

Great Dane will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the caliper bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Great Dane customer service at (912) 232-4471 and Meritor customer service at (866) 668-7221.
