    People don't seem to understand that the short rear overhang really helps with stability. Also a boat is much less likely to sway due to crosswinds and is inherently more stable due to a longer length from tongue to axle as compared to an RV trailer of equivalent size....

    Didn't Mastercraft go to torsion axles in 2001? Something seems janky there.

    I feel like you should be able to pull into Walmart and have them change the tires in less than an hour. Check with tire shops around there to see which ones carry trailer tires. 205/75r15 should be a more common size that works for your application. Ideally load range D, but you can get away with ...

    It is Ranger/Tacoma/Ridgeline sized. The bed is only 4.5' long as compared to 5.5 on most 1/2 ton crew cab trucks....

  • That puts you around 800 lbs of tongue weight. Greater than 10% of the trailer weight is tongue weight, which is why you're stable. What weight distribution would do is transfer some weight to the front axle so it isn't as light, though the short distance from rear axle to hitch means you lose less...

    Never do wire transfers or paypal friends and family unless you absolutely trust the person. Paypal goods and service only.

    Any chance you paid by credit card? You can always try a chargeback.

  • Don't fix it if it isn't broken. Pressure test won't tell you anything unless you have low pressure and you will feel the loss of power if you did. Our X-Star failed at about 200 hours while the 190 is at 450 hours and still running strong. Both boats have been run low multiple times. We keep a spare...

    With the advent of CNC props, 3 blades is the way to go unless you're going with 14" diameter props and larger.

    You probably have an old cast 13x13 prop on there now if it hasn't been changed. Going to a CNC 13x12 from OJ or Acme should give you what you are looking for. If that's not enough you can go down to a 13x11.5. Both companies will allow you to demo props. Not sure if the 1:1 of that era uses a 1"...

    The transmission cooler line was leaking a good bit on out 190. I decided to just buy AN hoses and fittings and build my own lines. Slightly cheaper and would be much easier to repair in the future if necessary. No signs of leaks for the past month.

  • Only thing you would need to do, other than the electric brake hardware, is get a solid tongue. Some people weld the existing surge system in place while others would replace the tongue.

    IMO EoH systems should be standard on any trailer setup over 6000 lbs.
