Additional information:

Among the thirty-five (35) recalls the NHTSA announced this July comes news of the following:

Logo - Jayco, Inc.Jayco, Inc. (“Jayco”), a Middlebury, Indiana establishment and subsidiary of Thor Industries of Elkhart, Indiana, has recalled an estimated 1,409 model year 2017 North Point Fifth Wheel Trailers marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Suspension – Leaf Springs provide inadequate suspension support

NHTSA Safety Notification 20E044000 reports the Leaf Springs in the front and rear suspension of the vehicle do not provide adequate load support and may allow the tires to contact the surrounding structure under certain dynamic load conditions.

According to the NHTSA, tire contact with the wheel well or surrounding structure of the recalled Fifth Wheel Trailers may cause damage to the tire, or cause premature tire wear, and loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

Jayco will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a rubber bump stop into the top sides of the axles, as well as inspect the suspension and replace any defective Leaf Springs as necessary. Tires with visible damage will be replaced as well. All repairs will be performed free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin July 17, 2020. Owners may contact Jayco Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-517-9137 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Jayco’s designation for this recall is 9901513.
