Maintenance – mainly seat suspensions, but other products
Clean seat suspension base by spraying fresh water every other use, and after exposure to salt water. Leave to dry.
Don’t use high pressure cleaners, as this may remove needed grease on the tension screw and -slots.
Don’t lubricate plastic parts or hinges/bushings on the suspension seat base.
Every 50 boat hours;
Clean all surfaces with dilute detergent to remove sand and salt deposits.
When cleaning, check so that enough grease remains on the tension screw and -slots. Should tension adjustment handle require a lot of force to turn after a while, apply generously with marine heavy duty grease along the screw threads and in the slots.
Do a visual inspection of any cracks or deformation of the unit, especially around mounting points. If there is any major damage present, or nuts or bolts missing, do not use the unit. Contact your supplier.
Check for oil leakage from the shock absorber. A thin layer of the oil on the shaft is normal. If there is excessive oil or the oil has sprayed out, do not use the unit. Contact your supplier.
