Summary:
      Hyundai Translead is recalling certain 2017 Hyundai Translead Composite trailers, model number 30012130, and HyCube trailers model numbers 30012400, 30012409, 30012410, 30012431, 30012434, 30012481, and 30012595. These trailers are equipped with MPA/MTA suspensions and 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.
Consequence:
      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.
Remedy:
      Hyundai Translead will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the bolts, replacing any loose or missing ones, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Hyundai Translead customer service at 1-819-574-1500 or Meritor at 1-866-668-7221. Hyundai Translead's number for this recall is 17E049.
