ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY & DOUBLETREE RV RECALL DOUBLETREE TRAILERS.

Make / Models :
Model/Build Years:
ACTIBRAKE / AB-1-14
9999
Manufacturer : ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY Mfr's Report Date : JAN 03, 2008
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 08E007000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 359
Summary:
 ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY IS WORKING WITH DOUBLETREE RV TO RECALL 359 ACTIBRAKE ELECTRIC-HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR, P/N AB-1-14, USED FOR HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES INSTALLED AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT ON CERTAIN DOUBLETREE TRAILERS. THE TRAILER WIRING CONFIGURATION OF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER ALLOWS HIGH CURRENT TO BE CONTINUOUSLY APPLIED TO THE ACTIBRAKE EVEN AFTER THE TRAILER CIRCUIT BREAKER IS TRIPPED AND THE 30 AMP FUSE ON THE ACTIBRAKE IS BLOWN. THEREFORE THERE IS A SITUATION WHEREIN THE 50 AMP BREAKER IN THE TRAILER WIRING DOES NOT PROTECT THE ACTIBRAKE BATTERY CHARGER CIRCUIT FROM OVER-CURRENT.
Consequence:
 TRAILER BRAKES ARE NOT OPERATIVE WITH AN INCAPACITATED BRAKE ACTUATOR. THIS SITUATION COULD POSSIBLY RESULT IN A VEHICLE CRASH.
Remedy:
 ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY IS WORKING WITH DOUBLETREE TO NOTIFY OWNERS AND REPAIR THE TRAILERS FREE OF CHARGE. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DOUBLETREE FOR MORE INFORMATION. DOUBLETREE'S RECALL NO. IS 08V-040.
