Wabash National Corporation "Wabash" is recalling certain 2018 Van trailers manufactured with MPA/MTA suspensions equipped with Meritor EX225 brakes. The brake caliper bolts on these axles may not be properly torqued which can allow the caliper to detach from the mounting flange. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 121, "Air Brake Systems."
If the caliper bolts are improperly torqued and the caliper detaches from the mounting flange, a loss of braking ability would occur, increasing the risk of a crash.
Wabash will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the bolts, replacing any loose or missing ones, free of charge. The recall began on November 14, 2017. Owners may contact Wabash customer service at 1-765-771-5300.
