Problems with Lund Boat Seats

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2009 Lund Outfitter 1750 SS with probem seats. They worked fine the first few times out and then they began to stick folded down and then stick folded up. Eventually they broke the plastic hinge cover in the back. I returned two of them this winter and Lund sent me new ones. Well now all three are sticking. My dealer says nobody else is having trouble with this type of seat and I find this hard to believe. I'm not doing anything out of the norm that I can think of. I'm sure Lund will give me three new seats. I really don't want three more of this type of seat if they're going to continue to fail. Any suggestions how to handle this or similar experiences? Here's a pic of the seat before the hinge cover completely broke off and one after.

You might try occasionally spraying the hinges with either silicone, or Teflon dry lube.

Nice boat BTW

Let me know if you want to get rid of the old broken ones.

Sorry Northlander, Lund wanted the old ones from the dealer before they'd give the dealer new ones. I'm sure they'll want these three back, but if they don't.......... That's another bad part of this deal, I'll have to be without any seats for a couple of weeks.

Bass N Spear, the dealer said they'd call Lund Monday, but maybe I should call too.

Thanks Wish I were Fishn.

I have one of the 2008 seats in my boat (as well as a couple 2007 seats). It looks similar to the one you have and it worked just fine all last season. I never expierienced any problems like you encountered. I also have never used any sort of lube on the hinges, nor do I think it is ever required. Did they make some sort of change between 2008 and 2009 that's not readily apparent? You might want to tell Lund to replace your seats with 2008's. Of course, I have yet to use my boat this season, so time may still tell.

Thanks Steffanf,

At first I figured I may have gotten a bad batch, but after replacing two of the three and still having problems, I'm baffled. My dealer is just looking at me like I'm abusing these things or something. I've searched the internet and can't come up with any other problems with these seats. I keep my boat in the garage where it's not below freezing very often and it hasn't been very hot to warp the plastic. It's always covered when I take it to the lake. 50% of the time I fish by myself, so there's no wild parties jumping up and down on these things. I just don't get it. I'll ask them tomorrow if they changed anything. Thanks.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
