Manufacturer: Heartland Recreational Vehicles, LLC
SUMMARY:
Heartland Recreational Vehicles, LLC (Heartland) is recalling certain model year 2014 Landmark Grand Canyon, Key Largo, Monterey, San Antonio, and Savannah fifth wheel travel trailers manufactured September 14, 2013, through January 17, 2014, and equipped with optional 17.5" wheels. The affected trailers were manufactured with incorrect information printed on the Federal Certification Label regarding the wheel specification. As such, the trailers do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119 "New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars."
CONSEQUENCE:
An incorrect label may result in owners attempting to replace the tires with the wrong size or fill the tires to the wrong tire pressure, which may increase the risk of tire failure and a crash.
REMEDY:
Heartland will notify owners, and will mail owners a corrected replacement label, free of charge. Owners may contact Heartland at 1-888-262-5992. Heartland's number for this recall is 99-01-15.
NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

This is something I noticed on my current FW. I have had a number of new trailers, 4 that were rvs. I had never seen a Federal tire info label, that did not match the tires and wheels installed on a new trailer.

So yes, it happens. I called the manufacturer, with the vin #. They told me what tires and wheels it was ordered with, and what it left the factory with. The label was wrong, and they did offer to send a new one to me.

I have since looked at 2 identical trailers to mine, near the same date of manufacture. All three of us had the same tires and wheels, but one of the others had the same wrong label that I did.
