Summary:
      VT Hackney, Inc. "VT Hackney" is recalling certain 2014-2016 Kidron refrigerated trailers, and Hackney Beverage Trailers manufactured February 1, 2014, to June 1, 2016, equipped with certain Bendix SR-5 spring brake valves. These valves may have been improperly machined which may cause a delay of application of the spring brakes while parking.

Remedy:
      VT Hackney will notify owners and any affected SR-5 valves will be replaced by kits ordered from Bendix, free of charge. VT Hackney issued an interim notification to owners on August 10, 2016.
