Nhtsb/jayco recall notice now posted

On the NHTSB list, the Swift SLX has recall notice on all SLX manufactured Oct 24, 2011 through July 3, 2012
JAYCO will notify owners by mail. This is a axle recall. Recall is expected to begin this month. Info on the NHTSB WEBSITE

Has anyone received a notice of this recall yet? This is annoying to say the least. We were planning on taking the camper on another 400 mile trip next weekend, now I am questioning whether I should. We have put about 800 miles on our 184Bh and it was manufactured in 5/2012. The recall on the NHTSB says that the wheel bearings are too large which causes overheating. I have checked the temperature of my bearings each time I have stopped on our longer trips and they were barely even warm to the touch. Is anyone else changing your plans now that you know there is an issue? I probably don't have an issue with mine, but, I don't feel like it is worth the risk now.

Just had ours replaced and still having issues, it's been an on going problem, over 2 months now. With ours, I could jack up the tt and wiggle the tires from side to side. you might try that, I would think that tires that were tight and you could not wiggle would be a good sign. Good luck....happy camping!

dlindsay001 You could jack it up and check( grab the tire's at the 12 & 6 o'clock positions and wiggle then the 3&9 o'clock positions) your self or just go to your local garage and have them check. No sense ruinning vacation plans. ps you would have found the problem within that 800 miles if you had one. Larry

I just called the dealer about this and they have not been notified yet and don't know about the recall. I am going to jack it up and see if I notice any play and go from there I guess.

I'm procrasting the dealer call, hoping they'll get the notice first. Where are you guys finding your manufacture date? I found an April 2012 on outside of camper, is that it? I'm pretty sure we have a problem . When we took it for first camping trip (a 20 min trip) both wheels were HOT. Thot we had the brake controller too tight. Backed off on that, and the wheels cooled enough so we could leave our hands on and not get a 3rd degree burn! Still think there's a problem, so better get it in.

Yes, the mfg date is on the side. I just jacked it up, no noticeable wobble, possibly a tiny amount of play but not sure. I called jayco, they referred me to Dexter axle and gave me the name of the woman handling the recall. I left her a message to call me as she is supposed to have an idea which serial numbers of axles are being recalled.

I hope everyone gets taken care of on this one -and soon. Loose bearings with possible loss of a hub and wheel, and especially on a single axle trailer, is not a good scenario.
