Columbia Northwest is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Somerset Niagara trailers equipped with 14" aluminum wheels and corresponding lug nuts. The aluminum wheels may disengage from the axle hub.

The loss of a wheel during transit can result in the loss of control of the trailer or the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the loose wheel becomes a road hazard.

Owners of the affected Niagara trailers will receive a new lug nut wrench to tighten down the lug nuts free of charge.

Columbia Northwest dealers can also re-torque the wheels if the customer is not able to, at no charge.

For additional information on this recall, contact Columbia Northwest at 1-724-423-7440.
