Recall 24V322/2024-01, LE 2, towing coupler may be underrated


Recommended Posts

We left for a long trip May 14 and just returned. Upon our return We found in our mail a safety recall from Oliver for the towing coupler naming specifically our vehicle number. I have researched the forums and I have not seen any comments concerning this matter. Am I the only one receiving this notice or am I looking at the wrong place.

Check this post, it is pretty much what prompted the recall.

BTW, I find google search better than this forum, this is how I search google....site:olivertraveltrailers.com forum then whatever your searching, ie...."site:olivertraveltrailers.com forum coupler"....in this case I searched coupler...

I think most of us got the recall notice.  Just need to look at the top of your hitch and make sure it says 7000 lbs, not 5000.  Here’s what mine looks like, the red thing is a lock.

We also got the recall notice for our 2022 LE II Hull No. 1291, even though we bought the factory upgrade to the 2-5/16"  Bulldog coupler.  As you would expect, our coupler reads "12500 lbs."  Oliver is just being overinclusive, to be safe.BulldogCoupler.thumb.jpg.d5e232d979cfd4b19dd00e719157b914.jpg

And so did I, thankfully I found out with my brother checking my mail! 

I wrote to Oliver Service just to let them know that it doesn't apply to my Oliver, as I also have the 2-5/16" 12,500# Bulldog. I appreciate OTT for sending the notice.

Our coupler was black when new.  I touch it up annually with Black Rustoleum.  Mike

This is what we use, and a small can and a couple of small brushes.

👍 Their Oil-Based is the best for rust prevention and adhesion, based on my experiences! Next up, Rust-Oleum Professional spray cans.

After years, we stained our deck again. Chris went to Depot with a printout of the stain I wanted. She came home with something the Orange-Aproned HD associate substituted, some acrylic cr@p. Took another trip to the Depot to get “oil-penetrating” stain. There are soooo many hyped bad products marketed today. I have a saying, “if they spend $$$to create a commercial to sell their product, buy something else!”
