Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, manufacturer of refrigerated trailers, dry freight vans, flatbeds and Tautliner curtainsided trailers, has announced enhancements to its USS-120A side skirt. The product is also securely bolted by a “spring” attachment to the support leg wingplate, which will allow enough of the forward edge of the material to engage the slip joint. To improve the durability of the product, galvanized high-tensile steel braces that connect to the side skirt’s cross-members have been moved up by 5.75 inches, which will allow the product to bed and flew more freely on impact.

Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
