Among the 50 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Keystone Automotive Operations, Inc. (“Keystone”) has recalled an estimated 25,000 Husky Towing Products branded Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, part numbers 31569/14-1706, and 31570/14-1707. The fasteners in the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch may loosen, potentially causing the jaws to unexpectedly open or preventing the jaws from being able to be unlocked.

According to the NHTSA, if the jaws of the Trailer Hitches unexpectedly open, the Fifth Wheel Trailer will not be secured to the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Keystone will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the affected hardware using thread locker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 18, 2018. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-800-432-8063.
