Possible Wheel Loss

Re: Sea-Doo Move I Extended 1500 Trailer Spindle Weld Failure - Possible Wheel Loss


Dear Sea-Doo® Owner,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. BRP has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists on some 2021 Sea-Doo MOVE trailers.

Our records show that you own a potentially affected trailer.


Which models are involved?

A limited quantity of serial numbers of model year 2021 Sea-Doo MOVE trailers.
 

What is the potential problem?

On a limited number of units manufactured by Karavan Trailers, the wheel spindles were improperly welded to the axle. In some situations, this could result in a wheel loss, increasing the risk of a crash.


What should you do?

Do not use your trailer UNTIL the inspection or repair has been done.

Inspection:

Identify the batch number on your axle. If the batch number is NOT 256 or 258 or 260.

No further action is required and you can continue to use your trailer.

If the batch number is either 256 or 258 or 260, or if you are unable to identify the batch number, contact your authorized BRP Sea-Doo dealer to schedule an appointment and arrange for transportation of the trailer. The dealer will perform the safety recall.

If it is possible, send the trailer WITHOUT the PWC on it. 


What will BRP do?

BRP will repair your trailer free of charge. The corrective action involves an inspection of the axle batch number. If it is part of the affected batch, the axle will be replaced and transportation of the trailer to your dealership will be paid by BRP. This service should take about one hour.

If it is not part of the affected batch, no further action will be required. 


Where to find the BATCH NUMBER on the axle?
