What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began on July 27, 2020, and affects Jayco North Point fifth wheel trailers from model year 2017.
The leaf springs in the front and rear suspension of the affected fifth wheel trailers do not provide adequate load support and may allow the tires to contact the surrounding structure under certain dynamic load conditions, NHTSA said. Tires contact with the wheel well or surrounding structure may cause damage to the tire, or cause premature tire wear, and loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
If you purchased a fifth wheel that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact your Jayco dealer for a free repair.
Jayco’s Recall Number for these fifth wheels is 9901513.
