Manufacturer: John Evans Manufacturing Co.
John Evans Manufacturing Co. (John Evans) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 chassis and trailers; model year 2013-2014 remanufactured chassis and trailers, and model year 2013-2014 Cheetah Chassis and trailers.
The affected products were manufactured September 5, 2012, through April 19, 2013. The wheel lug nuts may not be properly torqued.
Insufficient torque on the wheel lug nuts could lead to separation of the wheels from the chassis or trailer, which may increase the risk of a crash.
John Evans will notify owners, and dealers will inspect each trailer. The affected trailers will have the lug nuts re-torqued, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact John Evans customer service at 1-803-436-3102.
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153)
