Approximately 900 model year 2018 Crossroads Cruiser and Volante recreational trailers have been recalled by Keystone RV Company.

What's the problem?

The brake wire on the affected trailers may have been improperly attached to the spring assembly on the axles, allowing the wire to be damaged and short circuit.

Damage to the wire can cause a loss of trailer braking, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. An electrical short of the brake wire also increases the risk of a fire.

What happens next?

Keystone RV will notify owners of the recalled Crossroads Cruiser and Volante trailers beginning in early June 2018. Keystone dealers will then relocate the brake wiring as needed, free of charge.

Consumers with questions about this recall can contact Keystone customer service at (866) 425-4369.

Keystone's reference number for this recall is 18-316.
