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.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
