Heil Company "Heil" is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Petroleum, Crude, Dry Bulk and Flatbed trailers manufactured January 1, 2014, to June 18, 2016. These trailers are equipped with certain Bendix SR5 spring brake valves which may have been improperly machined which could cause a delay of application of the spring brakes while parking.
If there is a delay of the spring brake application, the trailer may roll away after it has decoupled from the tractor, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
Heil will contact owners and Bendix will provide a remedy kit, complete with instructions, to repair any affected SR-5 trailer relay valves, free of charge. The recall began on September 23, 2016. Owners may contact Heil customer service at 1-800-400-6913.
