Mfr's Report Date: JUL 17, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number:
NHTSA Action Number:
Potential Number of Units Affected: 10
Summary: Texas Pride Trailers (Texas Pride) is recalling certain model year 2012 DTFLB trailers, equipped with Dexter Axle brand electric/hydraulic (E/H) brake actuator pumps. Some of these pumps may not have been properly heat treated. This condition can cause premature wear of some critical components in these pumps which can render the unit inoperable.
Consequence: The E/H brake actuator provides braking power to the trailer brakes. Failure of the actuator can result in the loss of braking effort by the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Texas Pride will notify owners, and dealers will replace the actuators, free of charge. A notification schedule has not been provided. Owners may contact Texas Pride Trailers at 1-936-349-6038.
