Potential Number Of Units Affected : 7702
      Great Dane Trailers "Great Dane" is recalling certain model year 2015 Reefer and Van Trailers manufactured March 3, 2014, to February 24, 2015, equipped with certain Haldex Life Seal Type 30/30 Long Stroke Air Brake Actuators manufactured January 9, 2014, to October 28, 2014. The affected actuators may have an incomplete attachment of the internal rubber diaphragm to the actuation mechanism of the parking brake section of the Life Seal actuator.
      If the diaphragm is not completely attached, there may be internal leakage from the service section past the diaphragm, potentially trapping air pressure in the parking brake section. This air pressure in turn, if not vented, may prevent full release of the actuator unit, and may induce brake drag and may result in overheated wheelend service brakes, increasing the risk of a fire.
      Great Dane will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on March 2, 2015. Owners may contact Great Dane customer service at 1-912-232-4471.
