Summary:
      Cheetah Chassis Corporation "Cheetah" is recalling certain 2017-2018 Bridgemaster, 2017 Extendable and 2017-2018 Maximizer, Tank, Gooseneck, and Heavy Duty trailer chassis. The air brake diaphragm on these vehicles may degrade and allow the brake system air to leak from the quick release valve causing the emergency brakes to engage.
Consequence:
      Partial or full application of the emergency brakes can cause the wheel-end to overheat or a drag slowing or stopping the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Cheetah will notify owners, and service centers will install heavy duty diaphragms in the quick release valves, free of charge. The recall began on November 20, 2017. Owners may contact Cheetah customer service at 1-704-436-2590.
