Advisory details

On certain travel trailers, the slide room mounting bracket may not ensure adequate clearance of the slide mounting head from the tread of the drivers’ side front tire. If the vehicle is not pulled level, or the suspension is loaded unequally, there is a risk the tire will contact the slide mounting head, which could cause rapid air loss and/or tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will install a new slide mounting bracket to ensure proper clearance from the driver’s side front tire
