XTRA Lease has ordered more than 2,000 new trailers for 2013, including a mix of dry vans, reefers, flatbeds, chassis and lift-gated van trailers. In addition, the company is retrofitting hundreds of 2010 model trailers in California with side skirts, making them compliant with CARB requirements. Fuel-saving aerodynamic side skirts and low-rolling resistance tires have become standard features on all new XTRA Lease trailers, the company says.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
