What do you think of this idea? We could alternate boats. Go wakeboarding tomorrow and go slalom skiing next Monday. I have not been on a slalom ski for twenty something years with the exception of one run a couple of years ago. It was a sad performance but it was super fun. Let me know if you are interested in going tomorrow, we could meet at Canyon lake at 9 am. It is just me so far on my side, so feel free to invite someone. I would like to request no dogs on the wakeboard days (I hope you understand, it's an upholstery thing). Curtis 480-290-9680
Hey Dave. Sorry. Not sure what the difference is between "Visitor Messages" and "Private Messages". Sorry I lost your first message.
The trailer valet is fantastic on flat ground. You can steer the thing very easily and maneuver wherever you want to go with precision.
Inclines are a bit different. I think the Trailer Valet spec. says you can use it up to a ten degree incline. There is also very fine print that states you MUST have the tongue on the downhill side (forcing the weight on to the trailer valet). I thought it was just liability BS so tried backing it down my driveway with the tongue uphill. I left the boat trailer safety chained to the truck just in case, and set some wheel stops. Without those precautions, I might have had a tough time getting the trailer to stop rolling - the trailer valet wheel was just sliding on the ground, with the brake fully on.
I've tried in on slight inclines with the tongue (and trailer valet) on the downhill side, and it worked. It started loosing traction as the hill got steeper, though (probably greater than the 10 degree recommendation).
So there you go. Great product for flat surfaces. Be careful on inclines and stay well inside the recommended parameters.
