Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2019 Heartland Pioneer and Prowler travel trailers, built on D28H, D35, D40 or D44 trailer axles. The inner hub bearings may not have been sufficiently greased, which can cause the bearings to overheat and fail.
If the bearings overheat, the hub may fail, affecting handling and increasing the risk of a crash.
Heartland will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the hubs and bearings, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 15, 2019. Owners may contact Heartland customer service at 1-877-262-8032. Heartland’s number for this recall is 99.01.42.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
