Manufacturer Campaign Number:
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 123
Summary:
      THE LED STOP, TAIL, TURN, AND SIDE MARKER LAMP COMBINATION PACKAGE ON CERTAIN TOW TRAILERS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, 'LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT.' THE LAMPS ATTACHED TO THE REAR "ON THE FENDERS" ARE NOT SEPARATE FROM THE STOP-TAIL-TURN LAMP COMBINATION AND ARE NOT THICK ENOUGH TO PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LEVEL OF VISIBILITY WHEN VIEWED FROM THE REAR AS REQUIRED BY THE STANDARD.
Consequence:
      THE DRIVER OF ANOTHER VEHICLE APPROACHING FROM THE REAR AT NIGHT MIGHT NOT SEE ENOUGH OF THE TRAILER LIGHTS TO JUDGE THE PRESENCE OF THE TRAILER'S FULL LENGTH AND WIDTH AND COULD STRIKE THE TRAILER.
Remedy:
      EACH CUSTOMER WILL BE SHIPPED REPLACEMENT CLEARANCE MARKER LIGHTS AND BRACKETS ALONG WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. OWNERS WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO CONTACT RACE CITY TO ARRANGE TO HAVE THE MARKER LIGHTS INSTALLED. THE RECALL BEGAN ON JANUARY 18, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT RACE CITY AT 1-866-223-1016.
