Defect SummaryGreat dane is recalling certain model year 2011 semi van and reefer trailers manufactured from october 15, 2010, through january 31, 2011 and equipped with gunite automatic air brake slack adjusters. due to an incomplete knitting of the iron at the time of casting, inadequate structural integrity of the slack adjuster housing can occur, which could cause the housing to break at the handle under normal operating loads.
Consequence SummarySlack adjusters with this flow notch could crack under normal braking conditions causing loss of braking which could result in a vehicle crash.
Corrective SummaryGreat dane will notify owners and accuride/gunite will conduct the remedy for this campaign and replace the subject slack adjusters free of charge. the safety recall is expected to begin during april 2011. owners may contact accuride at 1-800-677-3786.
