Well *****, I'm right at the tail end of that recall timeframe.

Recall moved to Palomino section.

Hmm. Could've inspected mine very easily been in December when my trailer was on its side... Oh well, hope they got it resolved so my new Sabre went have this concern.

Wonder if they fixed this while mine was at the factory. I will have to email Gary and find out.

asquared 04-07-2015 08:25 PM

Well, I heard back already from Don Hasty. They checked my trailer out and verified it was ok while it was at the factory in March. All is good! He said the owners letters being sent out will have all the info everyone regarding the recall.

Mine was built in September 14, but the way ive seen other wires ran, it really wouldn't surprise me.

Read is fundamental. Well that and memory and not being an idiot. My trailer was manufactured in 2012 not 2014. Dolt.

Mine is at the dealers now, will have them check it out!

Found my "potential" mis-wiring issue when replacing a defective brake magnet recently. As the brake wires drop down from the frame (drivers side only) they were excessively long and rubbing against the suspension spring, as well as unprotected. I added automotive electrical wire loom and some zip ties to keep them off the springs but still allowing full range of motion for wheel travel.

Got my recall letter in the mail yesterday. I'm gonna see if someone can go out to our seasonal to fix it. Im not too worried about it, as ours doesn't move much.

Got my letter this weekend and my sabre is at the dealer as well. I called and send them the letter today and asked that they address it while its there to save me a trip. The sad part is the dealer had not even heard about the recall.

tugger50 04-14-2015 08:32 PM

I just checked my VIN and it falls within the range of numbers. As of today have not rec'd a recall letter yet. I'll go look at it myself and then call the dealer.
Leaving on a trip to Reno in two weeks.

Received my letter....going in the dealer May 20 for a few other warranty "annoyances"...hope they can do it at the same time.

tugger50 04-24-2015 09:25 PM

Got mine fixed today. The tech was good and it only took about 20 mins. He took the required before and after pics for the factory. He did a sweet job and added wire loom and zip ties as well. (extra)
