Well it was a journey, I left at 8:30 Wednesday night got there Thursday am around 9:00 took a 2 hr nap around 2:00 am with some truckers. Looked over the boat and everthing checked out ok had some dock rash on one side that could not see in the pics. Left around 11:00 and got home around 9:00. So basically a 24 hr trip, I hit rain 80 miles before home and had to put the cover on otherwise I ran naked the complete way. Thanks for all the replies and help the blue tape worked good and I am glad I posted because I would forgotten the back straps. I have so many questions I am not sure where to start so I think I will wait and post more later. I only had on mishap towing I thought I could go a little farther on my tank of gas and then realized I was in no mans land in Arkansas, I started to panic as the needle was buried and I had no gas stations in site. I finally found a small town and filled up. I had 1/2 gallon left in the tank. If I ever do this again I will take a gas can with me and place in back of truck.

Is my computer going crazy, Why is your tower blue? Is that a wrap of some sort.

Great looking boat. Congrats

I have a friend that takes TWO spares on trips...

+1 on the floor jack, but also get something that u can drive the flat wheel onto to get the axle high enough to put the jack under

Also, get the #s of all the roadside assistance available in case

And if I were towing that far, I'd buy the boatsus towing assistance plan - its cheap and pays for itself 100x if u hav an issue

I pull my prostar to Northwest Ontario from Chicago every year - 1500 mile round trip.

Before I leave I inspect bearings and the the bearing buddies a refill of grease - I use marine synthetic grease, then inspect tires.

I stop every 90 minutes and check tires and hubs for excessive heat... on first 90 minute inspect I check rear of wheel for grease spatter in case seal fails.

I also watch the trailer like a hawk - looking for any smoke or tire wobble or bounce.

I also carry a spare set of bearings, seals and races... not a tough job if there's a failure on the rode....IMO..
