CHANGING THE FEDERAL CERTIFICATION AND TIRE LABELS

Remove existing label(s)

  1. Locate the label(s) on the outside off door side (road side) front of the unit.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This Notice Applies to Your Recreational Vehicle «vin»

 

Dear Valued Customer:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

 

Jayco has decided that certain 2021 Jay Feather X213 (J3) travel trailers fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, “Tire selection and rims and motor home/recreation vehicle trailer load carrying capacity information for motor vehicles with a GVWR  less than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less”.

 

Reason for this recall Labels note tire size as ST205/75R14 load range “D” and GAWR of 3,000 lbs. when correct on the travel trailer is ST225/75R15 load range “E”  and GAWR of 3,500lbs. This error creates the possiblity that the vehicle could be loaded with the amount of cargo as stated and result in the vehicle being overloaded.  Overloading may lead to issue with drivablilty and premature tire wear and subsequent tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Recall Remedy Remove the incorrect labels and attached the corrected labels enclosed per instructions provided.
What we need you to do You can place the correct labels on your travel trailer or  contact an authorized Dealer to schedule an appointment.  The Recall Remedy is free of charge
