National Highway Traffic Safety Administration generally instructs manufacturers to issue recalls; not many recalls are done voluntarily by the manufacturer since they're costly.
A search of NHTSA archives indicates an Actibrake (is that what you mean by "Activex"?) recall on Doubletree trailers. The cause was faulty trailer wiring, not a defect in the brake controller itself. Since it was not a fault in the controllers themselves, the recall would not apply to other trailer brands.
