Decreased braking capability is the culprit in a recent recall from Wabash National Corporation.

The auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Van Trailers equipped with certain Meritor EX225L2, EX225L+, and Bendix ADB22X axles. The affected axle assemblies have brake caliper mounting 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 the caliper detaches from the axle flange, braking performance would be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

Wabash is including about 90 trailers in this recall.

Wabash will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the caliper bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 15, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Wabash customer service at (765) 771-5404.
