The affected trailers have a gross vehicle weight rating "GVWR" of 5,000 pounds or less, and were manufactured November 4, 2014, to July 27, 2015. The Ram 2" A Frame Coupler used to secure the trailer to the tow vehicle may have been manufactured improperly, preventing the external latch from fully locking into place. If the coupler's latch does not fully engage, the trailer may separate from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. LGS will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the coupler, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2015. Owners may contact LGS customer service at 1-877-475-5665.
