2016-07-01 (Published by NHTSA on 2016-07-26)
Recall Summary: Fontaine Trailer Company (Fontaine) is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 Revolution trailers manufactured February 17, 2014, to April 11, 2016, equipped with certain Bendix SR5 spring brake valves. These brake valves were improperly machined without a radius on the internal check valve seat, causing a delay of application of the spring brakes while parking.
Hazard: If there is a delay of the spring brake application, the trailer may roll away after it has decoupled from the tractor, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
Remedy: The recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Fontaine Customer Service Department at 1-800-821-6535. Fontaine's number for this recall is Bendix 16E-045.
Additional Info: 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.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: Fontaine Trailer Company (Fontaine) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Revolution flat trailers manufactured September 30, 2013, to September 28, 2015. The affected trailers have welds that may crack where the structural support member attaches to the frame hanger.

These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 9, 2015. Owners may contact Fontaine customer service at 1-205-485-1300.
