Trident Power Wheelchair Caster Flutter Guide & Flash Codes Guide

First off: great decision on purchasing your Trident Power Wheelchair.

The Trident Power Wheelchair is one of the best products sold from our nationwide electric wheelchair store.

But if you encountered caster flutter, flash codes or both, we are here to help!

How to Eliminate Caster Flutter on the Trident

When traveling at full speed, caster flutter can buildup. But a recent improvement has been made to the Trident Power Wheelchair, which eliminates the flutter in the rear caster wheels when the person is traveling at full speed on the product.

  • The first step is to begin by removing the two plastic caps on the caster fork stems.
  • Next, remove the two M12 nuts, which are securing the caster forks to the frame. We recommend using a 19mm socket wrench for this step.
  • Now, with the washers supplied, install one of the washers per caster fork.
  • Lastly, reinstall the two M12 nuts that were removed in the second step. Then, replace the plastic caps that were removed in the first step.

Trident Flash Codes

As a general rule, when the VR2 controller senses a fault, this leads a number of battery indicator LED lights to flash.

For flash codes 2, 3, 4 or 5, swap the motor connections. If the flash code remains the same, then the
problem is the joystick.
