View Full Version : X15 keel hitting trailer frame?

08-02-2012, 02:26 PM
My buddy has a 06 X15, MC tandem trailer, bunks in good shape.
He rarely uses the trailer, boat sits on a lift, but twice now has peeled some gel off the keel as it goes over the front trailer cross member.
Seems it only happens on a steeper ramp (not that steep, I've loaded a boat there before)
He talked to Corey at Midwest and said that this is a common problem with the 15's and to just shim up the bunks about 3/4".
Good, easy solution, excpet he's alrady at zero clearance on the garage door when he puts it away for the winter. Side loader garage, biatch to air down the tires and then try to turn the boat into the garage, etc.
Thinking about putting a roller on that X member. Seems easy enough.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or what you did to fix it. Thanks.
