Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Cyclone and Road Warrior, and model year 2016 Torque travel trailers.

The affected trailers are equipped with aluminum black ladders manufactured by Christianson Industries that have retractable hinges, each with a welded 'top hat' that can separate from the hinge.

If the hinges separate from the ladder while in use, the ladder may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.

Heartland says that approximately 2,045 travel trailers are impacted by this recall.

The company will notify owners of the recalled trailers, and dealers will install hinge braces over the back of the existing hinges, free of charge.

For further information on this recall, owners can contact Heartland customer service at (877) 262-8032.
