Looking better every day!

You need to add some grease to the wheel bearings, til you see about 1/8"+ of the blue piston outside the Bearing Buddy housing. There is a grease fitting under the center cap of the piston.Attachment 50616

Wiring adapter

I put a 7/4 plug on my truck. Handles the flat 4 and round 7. Got it from Etrailer.com (part# 37185). They also have a 4/5/7 I believe, but you have to hunt or call. With my plug, the boats uses the 4 flat and my enclosed trailer with brakes uses the 7. No adapters to misplace and looks nice. Good luck.

Ahhh...I see. I was straight on the overall way surge brakes work, but didn't know what the key and the nickle were about.

The only surge-brake trailers I've ever owned had the "blue" fifth wire so I never got to deal w/the joys of trying to back a trailer w/them.

And yes, the disc brakes are great; those combined with the "tow/haul" mode on my truck's transmission handle our X-45 monster quite nicely. I can really tell when the trailer brakes kick in. It would be a nightmare to forget to remove the key and have to stop that mountain of metal and fiberglass barreling down a hill...ugh.

Gibbons, your original lines rusted out in 3 years?!? Did you boat in salt/brackish water? I think I'd be mighty POd if my lines rusted out that quickly. Wow.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

OK, I'm baffled... Exactly why does one polish their prop or rudder? Is there a performance issue at hand or is it purely aesthetics while sitting on the trailer?

I will now buy a length of garden hoswe and route it up away from engine so I'll simply need to raise Sun Deck to Run, or Winterize Engine...



I also got a Suction Pump:



and a Strut for the Sundeck. The old one Shown on top barely even extended.
