Reducing Rollover Risk

Summary


More and more fleets are examining the advantages of trailer roll stability control systems.

More and more fleets are examining the advantages of trailer roll stability control systems. The risk of rollover from driving actions, including collision avoidance maneuvers, sudden lane changes and acceleration in a curve can be mitigated as a result of Meritor WABCO's Roll Stability Support (RSS) system. The system automatically accounts for the trailer load and works with the braking components to reduce the likelihood of a rollover.

Meritor WABCO's two-sensor, one-modulator RSS 1M is the preferred standard on all Great Dane trailers. Features include: non-sustained wheel lock for smooth trailer control during a stability control event; standard blink code diagnostics to determine if an illuminated ABS indicator lamp is caused by a sensor-based or ECU-based fault.

In addition, fleets can purchase new trailers with Meritor WABCO RSS or may also wish to retrofit existing trailers in their fleet. Meritor WABCO offers retrofit kits for most trailer applications. Great Dane's retail network of aftermarket parts and service locations can supply retrofit kits as well as installation services.
