Missing Weld May Cause Cargo Winch to Fail – 2016-2023 Lode King & Prestige SDE & SDF Model Steel Step Deck Semi-Trailers

January 13, 2023 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 23V009000

Missing Weld May Cause Cargo Winch to Fail

A cargo winch mount failure can result in falling cargo creating a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 23V009

Manufacturer Lode-King Industries, Ltd.

Components EQUIPMENT, STRUCTURE

Potential Number of Units Affected 38

 

Summary

Lode-King Industries, Ltd. (Lode-King) is recalling certain 2016-2023 Lode King & Prestige SDE and SDF model steel step deck Semi-trailers equipped with a beavertail style ramp. The cargo securement winches located on the rear of the trailer may not be properly welded, causing the winch mount to fail.

 

Remedy

Dealers will add the missing weld on the end of the winch frame, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 23, 2023. Owners may contact Lode-King/Prestige customer service at 1-866-797-0669 (toll free) or 1-204-325-4345.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.

 


Chronology :

During a recent quality system audit it was noted that a detailed installation drawing, complete with weld symbols, was not provided to production personnel for this winch installation. Subsequently, these winches were only welded along the top and bottom sides – the end weld was omitted. With this end weld being missed the cargo winch fails at approximately 13,000 lb of load, just shy of the required 15,000 lb.
