Summary: Jayco is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Jay Flight Swift SLX Travel trailers manufactured from October 24, 2011, through July 3, 2012. These trailers may have oversized bearings installed in the axle. This may cause excessive movement in the wheel hub, causing the bearings to become overheated and worn.
Consequence: Overheated and worn bearings may lead to axle failure while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will replace the axle bearings with proper size bearings, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2012. Owners may contact Jayco at 1-800-283-8267.
