Just a reminder to all the brothers on UB, recheck tire pressure on the trailer since the cold weather hit.  Both my tires were down almost 15 pounds in the last two months, due to changes in the weather.  Car tire indicators sent signals last month too.

I do the same thing Lou.  But with all the medical problems with Mom and Dad, I haven't had the boat out in almost three months.  Checked pressures today and they were down big time.  It made me think how easy it is to forget about it, cooler weather can cause some problems.

That is most important, low pressure cause blow outs. ~b~ and crazy tire wear.  Always keep a max psi on side wall COLD.  Good Santa Idea. I installed TPS on trailer that read all tire press and temp. Stems screw on present stem all remote. Great for under $200.  Run nothing but ST rated tires.

Guys the long and short of it I have been pulling boats since 1970 ::) I have had every problem any basser could have.  Tires, bearing, hubs Grease, COOL oil filled, Dexter Grease and  Valut Hubs on a Ranger Trail.  Guys I do know the drill.  My Ranger Trail purchase new on rig was a trailer for the Far Side of Hell.
Thanks to Great Dealer and the Help or Ranger Trail they got it fixed.  Major problem was the axle were clocked wrong . Step two I got the Getto Wheels with 17" tires. General's which were Non Trailer tires. Replace by Dealer with Kendra's Load range was good , but againg Non ST tires with lack of side wall support. Cut to the chase, Never fun Non ST tires which I ordered from Ranger New on Custom Order.  Have a Great Dealer Like Angles Choice to get it fixed.. Shame on Ranger Wrong Clocked Axles.  They did right after 11 tires, four wheels, 4 hubs and two axles with hubs. Y'all did  right but one Hell of mess for me. Thanks to My Dealer Angle Choice for get it fixed ;D Finally almost impossible to have have axles aligned. It's a drop and replace the hole shooting match which was done to get the trailer fixed. Now running ST215/65R17 Kendra tires.  Kendra is the only tire mfg that makes a ST 17" tire. Son and they not cheap ~b~ So stay with a 14", 15" or even a 16" wheel so you can buy tire brand of your choice.   ::):shocking:
