Now that's a post worth a $1K. This has to be a warranty/serviceability nightmare for MasterCraft. Kind of hard to tout all that marketing talk about using the best parts and design for their trailers then not being able to service them without welding on a new tongue. I had heard that MC had a falling out with UFP then went with Reliable. The Reliable system was junk from the start and had problems with hanging calipers and leaking master cylinders. My 03 trailer suffered from both. I will say though that they did supply the parts to repair both to me for free. I'm sure that wouldn't have been enough to make your average Joe MC owner happy as I'm sure most wouldn't tackle trailer brakes on their own.

Did you get any idea as to how much this was going to go for? I'd consider getting one just to be ready for the failure.

Don't quote me on this but I heard mid 200's

Anything is better than cutting and welding!!

Thanks everyone! I tried launching it with a tractor at my dad's house and it had a swivel hitch. Basically I was trying to keep driving my truck through the yard since his boat ramp is in his back yard and the tractor is kept in a barn nearby (pretty sweet!) Well it went great except for the swivel hydraulic type hitch basically "destroyed" the latching mechanism. It's hard to describe but basically all the internals are deformed/destroyed and I have been living with just using a through bolt to keep it latched but I want to get this taken care of soon! Thanks Mike from Florida - I'll be giving you a call tomorrow!

Talked to Waymires on Thursday (March 21) and they said they were still waiting for UFP to get the stock to them. I will call UFP on Monday and talk to Jackie Lipford again to see the time line for getting these to the distributors. Hopefully before it warms up!!!

Talked to UFP (Monday, April 1st) and he said he had a shipment at the plating department....hopefully we should start to see them at Waymires in the next couple of weeks.

The sooner the better....weather getting nicer out!!

Out with the old.... Reliable brand swing tongue/actuator
And in with the new.... UFP tongue/actuator.

Parts from Pacific Trailer - $195. Neighbor around the corner to do the cutting and welding - $75. Peace of mind knowing that my trailer brakes will actually work correctly and I will be able to get replacement parts in the future - PRICELESS!

Now all it needs is a little primer and a nice coat of gloss black paint.
