You may be able to replace it for less hassle than repairing it. They run between 150-400 dollars

4. with my boat trailer plugged into my tow vehicle , everything works except the brake lights-any ideas roy?

Does your tow vehicle use separate bulbs for the turn and brake lights, or are they the same bulb? If they are separate bulbs, you will need to install an electronic adapter in your tow vehicle's wiring to keep the signals from feeding back into the wrong signal paths. Good luck!

5. where can i find the spring that is used in a hand winch on a boat trailer to keep the pin pushed against the?

If the spring is not broken, WD40 might free up the pin enough to work. If the spring is broken or missing, it gets a lot trickier. Look at other winches either on another boat trailer or at a store to see what your spring should look like, then off to a hardware store and see if they can help you. I had the same problem on an old trailer, but the spring was still there and I was able to free up the rusty moving part by working it back and forth with WD40. Good Luck

7. Boat trailer running lights work will not blink/brake?

Start at the truck plug check power on all connection then connect and check the wires on the lights

8. Any suggestions for repainting an old boat trailer that has some rust?

I would say go with the KBS Coatings 3-step system. You do not mention the sq. footage, but the frame coater kit for $52 might be just right for you. It covers 50 sq. ft. for 2 coat coverage. If you decide to sandblast the trailer, then you can easily skip steps 1 & 2 and just purchase their RustSeal in any one of 5 colors. For best results, apply it to bare metal surfaces. RustSeal is self-leveling &can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on. ( If you choose to apply it over any existing paint, sand it to etch it, and make sure that paint is sticking very well. .. it will lift if the paint beneath it decides to peel.) RustSeal is an amazing rock-hard Non-Porous coating that just loves seasoned metals. It's unique formulation allows it to seep deep down into all metal pores and block moisture & oxygen from ever entering. Once your trailer is sealed, you can also topcoat it with any color you would like also

9. Can I put a 10ft boat on a 12-14ft boat trailer?

Most likely yes. Make sure to fit the bunks or rollers to the hull and when you pull it on the trailer make sure not to pull the transom past the first roller and tie the boat down. How about a jet ski trailer?

10. How much should I expect to pay for a used boat trailer?

If the trailer is pristine, $500 is good. If it has been used in salt water, forget it. Does the trailer have bungs or rollers? Bring a small jack and see how the wheels spin without a load on them, listen to the bearings. Check the electrical system, (just make sure it is all there). If it is an average trailer, $300 is a good price for you, $400 is a good price for him

I need a boat trailer for my 2003 Carver 36 Feet 360 Sport Sedan boat because im takeing my boat to maryland..?First thing that you are going to need to do is have a Dealer for that brand of boat, or some company familiar with Carver boats to give you an estimate for the removal of the "Fly Bridge" and all of the electrics. They will need to know where the boat is going to arrange for the drop-off of the yacht and for that company to reinstall the fly bridge and all of the electrics. On both ends, a special lift will be needed to load and unload the vessel and all of the components to/from the trailer. The yacht will be hauled via a team with "Chase" vehicles the entire way. They most likely will be sleeping overnight in a hotel along the way which you will be paying for too. That company will pull all of the road permits which will be for "Daylight" towing only. It's not a cheap thing to do. A lot of planning and prep work goes into this type of haul. Good luck and check the link below. This is not something you can do yourself. An 18 wheeler is needed to pull that kind of weight and several people have to be involved with vehicles in the lead up front to spot problems and clear the way, and a trailing vehicle to watch your back.6.

The reason is, to keep someone from attempting to turn or drive between you and your boat. In my case I was in Pueblo CO when a truck turned in front of me, he was pulling about a 40' trailer that was actually a gravel conveyor, it only had tail lights. I did not see the machine until I was nearly on it. I had seen the pickup pull in, and thought it odd he stopped right after entering the driveway, but saw nothing until I was within about 40 to 50 feet, at 50 mph, thats not enough room to get stopped in. I ducked, it took the upper part off my pickup cab. He got ticket for improper lighting, I got 9000 toward a new pickup. I do not know how much it cost him to fix his machine. His comment was, "could not you see that?". At night, I could not. Might have helped had it not been painted black.

Drill a 1/4 hole in the frame and use the bolt on the light to secure the light to the metal frame, which acts as the ground. Then using a 3M blue clip connector attach the pig tail to the brown wire. you do not need to cut or splice the wire. One yellow on each side in front of the finders, and the red ones at the very back on the side. Note: some tail lights have a built in side marker light. Note: that these are not normally "turn signal" lights. The turn signals are the yellow and green wires, and connect the the rear facing lights. It's possible that your tow vehicle has separate circuits for stop and turn signals, if so you need a conversion box available at auto parts and marine stores, and u-haul shops. Some wiring harnesses run only down one side of the trailer. If so you connect a single brown wire at the tail light and run it forward as needed. It's a little hard to explain, but if you look at other trailers you will quickly understand how to do it. One other hint. If it does not work, drive around the block. The trailer must ground through the ball which might be rusty. Or you can add a ground wire to the system.3. going to build a wood boat trailer?Save your cash and use it to take a remedial class on how to properly use capitalization and punctuation. -And if you gotta build the trailer, make sure to send Jeff Foxworthy a picture of it....4. rewiring boat trailer w/ standard 4wire color code brown.white ,green, and yellow.?How To Rewire A Trailer5. how do you know if the boat trailer has electrical brakes?There will be a wire coming from the backing plates on the trailer going to the wiring harness etc at the front of the trailer.

Just make sure you do it right! :) Make sure you have directionals on it, brake lights, tail lights, and marker lights, and make sure they all work. Yes there can be wood on it as long as it is build on a metal frame, not all just wood. There is no weight requirement, just make sure it fits your boat correctly, and make sure the trailor is strong enough for your boat. :) It also must have a serial number on its tongue because it must have one for the DMV to be able to register it.4. going to build a wood boat trailer?well, think of it like this -- how long has wood been available? how long have people been making boat trailers? how many wooden boat trailers have you ever seen? do you really think you are the first person to think of it? trailers are subjected to completely different kinds of stress than boats are. The timbers you would need to get enough strength, rigidity and durability will be incredibly heavy. Probably prohibitively heavy. And expensive.5. where do you place the vin number on a boat trailer?Instructions should have been included in the information you received. If the tongue is bolted to the frame, and is thus removable, You stamp it on the "V" of the frame near where the tongue bolts on. . If the tongue is welded to the frame, it's stamped nearest the hitch. You can put the number in more than one place.6. How can I do a title search on a boat and trailer?If your in Australia you can you use REVS (Registry of Encumbrance Vehicle Service). The best part it's free over the phone. If you want a certificate which protects you in the event they were wrong, it's $15. .... piece of mind.7. What do i do to maintain a boat trailer?I agree with most all above but a little preventitive maintenance goes a long way. If at all possible, when you arrive at your destination, let the wheel bearings cool down. Traveling down the road heats them up. When the hot bearing is immersed in water, it cools quickly and tends to draw water past the seals to contaminate the wheel bearing grease. Also if it is a 'break away' trailer make sure the pin that retains it is in good shape. Bearing buddies will save you alot of grief. Well worth the money8. How do you alter trailer tounge weight?

I have a john boat 16 ft trailer with working lights do i have to license this in north carolina?5. Does anyone else have these lights on their boat trailer?MrFixIt6 is right. I have the same type but mine has the screws he mentions. I am confused, though, in that one of the reviews mentions replacing the bulbs. (Irby9005) If it's a sealed unit, then for sure you have to replace the entire unit. If it's not, then the bulb units must have some sort of tight rubber gasket to keep the water out. I would call the manufacturer (or emailo them) and get the straight ifo from them..6. How do I repack the ball bearings on my boat trailer?So far nobody answered your question,let me try.To repack the bearings you first have to remove the wheel and hub assy.from the axle.To do this first remove the metal cap at the center of the wheel,you will find a large nut with a cotter pin through it,remove the pin and remove the nut.The whole wheel and hub will slide off of the axle.The outer bearing will fall into your hand,the rear one wont fall out because of the rear seal.You can purchase wheel bearing grease at any auto supply store. You will now be able to see if there was water,dirt etc.inside the hub.Now you have to decide if just adding grease is enough or replacement is necessary. With your hand work the grease into the bearing and adding grease in the back of the wheel.Reassemble,when you tighten the nut back on do not over tighten,just snug,reinstall the cotter pin and replace the dust cap. Hope this helps7. 12 foot aluminum boat trailer liscense plate?When you say plate, are you talking about a Temp Tag. ???? The DMV will issue you the title and new tags. They will want a bill of sale and a mfg. cert of origin. ...that is unless the guy built it himself, that's another story. Good luck!!8. My boat trailer's tail lights don't always work. Help?I think Ben is right. U-Haul trailers are grounded thru the hitchball/coupler and often need a separate ground wire attached. Get 5 or 6 feet of wire and strip one end... find a metal screw in the trunk that screws into metal. Loosen the screw and wrap the exposed wire end around it and re-tighten it. It's handy to put an alligator clip on the other end of the wire. The next time you hook-up, clip that to any metal part on the trailer. Follow the wiring harness to ensure enough slack for turning etc9. I bought a small boat and trailer and the 1 7/8 hitch ball is to big. Is there a smaller one?No. My guess would be you have the trailer coupler too tight. Grab a crescent wrench and head underneath the trailer tongue. Loosen the bolt on the coupler enough to slide it over the hitch.10. Boat trailer repairs for a 14 foot inflatable?It's probably best to replace the studs and nuts at this point. It's not a big cost item and the last thing you want is for the wheels to come lose when you are on your way out for a nice day on the water. After replacing the nuts, a light coating of grease will help to protect against corrosion. Washing the wheels down as soon as possible after pulling the trailer out of salt water is also advised
Boat Maker Sets Sail on Global Journey
MANY people love the sea, but having the freedom to be out on the open water in your own boat is something special.Enter Haines Hunter. The boat manufacturer has been in the marine industry since opening its doors in 1959, but activity has ramped up in the past few years since new owners took over.After John Haber, Edwin Cole and John Cirillo bought the business in 2001, the awards began rolling in - Victorian boat manufacturer of the year two years in a row, among others.Cole says Haines Hunter had been owned by an American company "that was going belly-up". Haines was making a profit, but it was being milked by the parent company, and "we got it at the right price".Cole, a corporate accountant and 25-year veteran of the textile industry, said the new owners came in and changed the culture."We have been putting in lots of money on research and development," he said. "There is a need for new products. People get sick of the old ones." Both manufacturing sites - at Hoppers Crossing in Melbourne's west, and in Queensland - have research and development departments. New talent has also been hired from top British boat company Sunseeker."They have some great ideas - so watch this space," Cole said. Boat hulls are proven and patented, so "there is not much change there", he said.But the Australian dealer network has been revamped, the numbers cut from 40 to 20. The larger network was harder to monitor and head office had less control.Haines Hunter now has 32 boat models, with lots of optional extras, and makes about 750 boats a year, depending on their size. A smaller boat can be made in four or five days.Fishermen, both professional and amateur, buy most of the boats, but families are also increasingly forking out cash for them. "We can build in showers, water tanks and sinks. A 6.5-metre boat, for example, can sleep up to five people," Cole said. "Caravans are great, but why not have your own caravan that floats on water?" Australians' rising affluence is fuelling a boat boom. A basic boat costs $25,000 - before an engine is added - but customers can spend up to $250,000, depending on extras.Haines Hunter also dominates the boat trailer market - a boat trailer can be up to 8.1 metres long.Victoria is the company's key buyer market, a state of affairs that prompted the new owners to relocate the headquarters here from Queensland.The company employs about 80 workers - 50 in Queensland and 30 at Hoppers Crossing - but Cole said Haines was planning a major expansion in Melbourne.Staff numbers will be doubled and the factory relocated to a site in Laverton that is five or six times the size of the Hoppers Crossing plant.Exports may become a larger source of future income. Haines has exported some boats to Singapore and Noumea - the brand is well known in the South Pacific - but market demand in Australia has been more than enough to keep the factories humming.However, Cole said Haines was planning a joint venture in China to export boats to Asia, but the company would never export back to Australia. "We are passionate about manufacturing in Australia," he said.Haines Hunter will be inducted into the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame at a dinner on May 18.
