Jayco, Inc. (Jayco) is recalling certain 2021 Jayco Eagle fifth wheel trailers. Certain vehicles were equipped with a 4 1/4 inch spring hanger instead of the proper 5 1/4 inch spring hanger, reducing the tire clearance.
Reduced tire clearance can increase the risk of tire blow out, which can cause loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct 5 1/4 spring hangers, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 15, 2021. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-617-776-0344. Jayco’s number for this recall is 9901563.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
