Summary:
      Great Dane Trailers "Great Dane" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Reefer semi trailers manufactured December 19, 2013, to June 28, 2015, and equipped with certain Meritor EX225L2, EX225L+, or Bendix ADB22X axles. The affected axle assemblies have caliper 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.
Consequence:
      If the caliper detaches from the axle flange, braking performance would be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Great Dane will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the caliper bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on January 11, 2016. Owners may contact Great Dane customer service at 1-912-232-4471, or Meritor customer service at 1-866-668-7221.
