KZ-RV, L.P. is recalling over 315 2015 Venom, Inferno, Sportsmen, Sportster, MXT and SportTrek trailers manufactured July 1, 2014, to August 31, 2015, equipped with certain aluminum black ladders manufactured by Christianson Industries. The recall is due to the ladders having retractable hinges, each with a welded ‘top hat’ that can separate from the hinge. If said hinges separate from the ladder while in use, the ladder may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
The company, KZ-RV, will notify owners, and dealers will install a hinge brace over the back of the existing hinges, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016. Owners may also contact KZ-RV customer service, however, at 1-800-768-4016, extension 154 or 153.
