PJ Trailers Recalls Single-Axle Tilt Trailers Due to Hitch Problem
The steel trailer tongue may break and detach from the trailer
PJ Trailers has issued a recall of 36 model year 2015-2016 T1 single-axle tilt trailers because the trailer tongue may crack and separate from the trailer.
During production, these trailers had a notch cut into the steel tongue that may have been too deep and thus compromised the strength of the tongue, causing it to break and detach.
If the trailer separates from the tongue, the rest of the trailer would not be connected to the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
The company has notified owners and provided each owner with a reinforcement kit to have installed, free of charge.
The recall began in November 2015.
For more information, owners may contact PJ Trailers Customer Service at (866) 752-8781.
