155793058299091.pngCamco Manufacturing issued the following notice to distributors, dealers and consumers:

If you have recently purchased, sold or are holding inventory for sale of any Camco ReCurve R3 Adjustable Sway Control products [specifically Part #s 48750, 48751 and 48752 that would have been manufactured and shipped between April 1 and April 10th 2019], please be advised that a few of these products may have been shipped by the factory to our distributors without being pre-greased.

Per the product use instructions, prior to any use (whether the first use or the fifth), the consumer is advised to check the product to ensure that it has been sufficiently lubricated with suitable wheel-bearing grease.

Camco’s concern, however, is that if any of these products were shipped without a sufficient coating of lubricant, they could have experienced some premature rusting in transit which could cause the trunnion to not rotate. Should you experience this problem on any recently purchased or inventoried product, please contact Camco and they will exchange any eligible product.

Please contact Camco Customer Service at 800-334-2004 extension 28147 if you require technical assistance to confirm that your product is adequately greased and properly functioning.

Distributors, dealers or customers who have experienced this problem should contact Camco for details on exchanging the product.
