Sway command recall

NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V560000
Manufacturer:
Jayco, Inc.
Model Year:
2016
Make:
JAYCO
Model:
JAY FLIGHT
Recall Date:
20160727
Component:
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INTEGRATED TRAILER BRAKE CONTROL
Potential # of Units Affected:
3085
Summary:
Jayco, Inc. (Jayco) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Jay Feather, Jay Flight, Jay Flight SLX, Eagle, White Hawk, and Octane travel trailers manufactured January 5, 2016, to July 18, 2016, equipped with a Sway Command anti-sway system. When connected to certain tow vehicles that have an integrated brake controller, and after the anti-sway system has applied the trailer brakes in response to a sway event, the trailer brakes may no longer function to slow or stop the trailer.
Consequence:
A loss of trailer brakes may lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will remove the Sway Command system from the affected travel trailers, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-283-8267. Jayco''s number for this recall is 9901308.

Thank you posting this.
I have an aftermarket brake controller, I believe the recall deals with factory equiptment.
And for those that purchased this option and other that uninstalling sway command free of charge, those with sway command already was charged when we purchased the RV.
In this case, would we receive a refund for the option purchase price?
Thank you.
John

Wow! This is very scary. I just called Jayco and although our Whitehawk is prepped for sway command, it wasn't installed at the factory.

Because I am exceedingly paranoid, I'm also going to call the dealer and make sure they didn't install it later. I don't believe so, but better safe than sorry!

Thanks for posting about this, Rick!

Yeah, I'd like to know about the compensation for removing the system. Even if they give full replacement value, it is hardly worth the time, fuel, and having my camper monkeyed with. I don't think my oem controller is one affected, so I might just let it ride...

Good question. I would hope that Jayco would reimburse owners for a charged option they can't use! I never thought to ask this question when I spoke to Jayco since it's not installed on our unit.

I read somewhere that it was GM products. Not sure though.

Check out the note on this page. I'm going to keep mine since it's not affected.
