Summary

Wabash National Corporation (Wabash) is recalling certain 2020-2023 RFALHSA trailers. The lift gate obscures the rear conspicuity tape placed at deck height.

Wabash will supply conspicuity tape, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed on November 4, 2022. Owners may contact Wabash’s customer service at 1-765-771-5404.

Chronology :

8/23/22 – Customer reported that certain Wabash trailers with Waltco lift gates installed prior final manufacturing of the trailers by Wabash may not meet FMVSS 108 due to missing conspicuity tape at rear deck height. Wabash began an investigation and identified that the lift gates obscured the Wabash-installed conspicuity tape at the lower rear edge of the affected trailers.

8/24/22 – After research, it was discovered Wabash did not install the lift gates on these trailers, so Wabash contacted the third-party installer hired by the customer. To remedy units in production, Wabash instructed the installer to start installing rear deck height conspicuity tape on the lift gates to meet FMVSS 108, and Wabash installed conspicuity tape on the supplier-installed lift gates on units that remained in Wabash’s control.

8/25/22 – A Quality Concern Report was issued to create Product Safety Team (PST) awareness.

8/30/22 – At PST meeting, voted to escalate to the Product Safety Committee (PSC).

10/3/22 – After continued discussions with engineering, legal, and the supplier (Waltco), the PSC voted to conduct a voluntary recall for an FMVSS 108 noncompliance.
