Highland Ridge RV is recalling certain 2018 light travel trailers, models 312BHTS and 275RLS. The safety chains on these vehicles may be rated for a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 7,600 pounds; however, the trailer has a GVWR of 11,700 pounds.
The lower rated safety chains may fail if the trailer detaches from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Highland Ridge will notify owners, and dealers will replace the 7,600-pound chains with 11,700-pound chains, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2017. Owners may contact Highland Ridge customer service at 1-260-768-7771. Highland Ridge’s number for this recall is 9904364.
