Summary:
      Seagrave Fire Apparatus, LLC "Seagrave" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Marauder II fire trucks manufactured April 9, 2015, to April 20, 2016. The affected vehicles may be equipped with certain C20 and C21 split-shaft transmissions from Waterous. This transmission sends power to the wheels of an emergency response vehicle or powers an add-on unit such as a water pump used for fighting fires. A component within the shift unit may be damaged and as a result, the operator may not be able to switch the power output.
Consequence:
      If the power output cannot be changed, once the fire truck arrives at the scene, it may not be able to pump water to aid in extinguishing the fire, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
      Seagrave will notify owners, and dealers will remove the shift unit assembly and replace the clevis pin and retaining rings, free of charge. The recall began on August 26, 2016. Owners may contact Seagrave customer service at 1-715-823-1910 or by email at service"seagrave.com. Seagrave's number for this recall is 16E059.
