MAGIC TILT BOAT TRAILER 9999

Details

Manufacturer: Magic Tilt Trailers, Inc.


SUMMARY:
Magic Tilt Trailers is recalling certain boat trailers manufactured October 17, 2011, through January 24, 2012. These trailers are equipped with brake actuators manufactured by Carlisle. On some of the pumps, one of the rotating components in the hydraulic pump for the brakes may have missed a heat treat operation causing the actuator to wear at a higher than normal rate. As a result, the hydraulic pump could fail and result in a loss of braking ability in the trailer.


CONSEQUENCE:
Loss of braking ability can lead to loss of control of the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash, serious injuries, or property damage.


REMEDY:
Magic Tilt Trailers will notify owners, and dealers will replace the actuators on the trailers, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Magic Tilt Trailers at 1-800-998-8458.


NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
