The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Chrysler is recalling certain 2019-2020 Ram 4500 and 5500 Cab Chassis vehicles. The rear brake hose inside diameter may be too small, which could cause the hose to rupture. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 106, "Brake Hoses." A brake hose rupture can cause a loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 26,961 units are affected by the recall.
- HD Trailer MFG is recalling certain 2022 Non CDL Gooseneck trailers equipped with Besser Pro 7000 lb. Tubular Straight Axle assemblies. The weld that joins the spindle and the main axle may have been improperly placed, which can cause cracking or separation of the axle from the spindle. Cracking or separation of the axle and spindle can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 15 units are affected by the recall.
- Paccar is recalling certain 2022-2023 Kenworth T680, T880, W990, and Peterbilt 365, 367, 389, 567, and 579 vehicles. The digital display may freeze and not display critical safety information. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS 101, "Control and Displays" and 102, "Trans Shift Lever Seq/Starter Interlock/Trans Braking Effect." The loss of display information, such as vehicle speed and warning lights, can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 76,492 units are affected by the recall.
- Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2023 Magnitude and Omni vehicles. The Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) Label states the incorrect number of seat belts, indicating that there are more seat belts available than there actually are. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 120, "Wheels and Rims - Other Than Passenger Cars." The incorrect seat belt information may result in occupants being transported without available seat belts, increasing their risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 69 units are affected by the recall.
- Wabash is recalling certain 2020-2023 RFALHSA trailers. The lift gate obscures the rear conspicuity tape placed at deck height. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the FMVSS number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." Obscured conspicuity tape may reduce visibility of the rear of the trailer for nearby drivers and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 740 units are affected by the recall.
