  1. A quality antenna is just as important or more so than the radio itself.
  2. Much easier to measure from the back end of the trailer (each side) to the spring hanger. That's the way the hanger was set when the trailer was built. Measurement should obviously be the same. Still...it sounds like it is over loaded.
  3. X2 for the toilet bowl cleaner. I use (The Worx) from either Big Lots or The Dollar Store. Mixed 50-50 in a garden sprayer.
  4. Ok. New cable it is.
  5. Slow down...no need to cut it yet. Disconnect the cable from the motor and move the motor by hand. If there is still a problem, it's the swivel bracket. If all is good there, pull out as much cable as you can and spray the housing, the shaft, and the cable with some good penetrating oil. (WD-40 is not a good penetrating oil) Have somebody work the wheel back and forth as you wipe up all the mess. Keep at it and it will free up. It is most likely all plugged up with dried up grease. There are lots of videos on youtube.
  6. Agreed...It does seem to be picking up. I do have to say the consistent 5-7lb fish is a concern. Not just near Roc, but it seems to be everywhere. JMO
  7. Took my daughter and her husband out for an evening troll. Ran 2 riggers] and 2 wire dipsy ff's. Fished 150-300 with good temp around 50. Marked some bait and a few fish but nothing happening. On the return, a wire diver 110 over 189 starts jumping. I gave it to my son in law while I cleared a rigger. Ended up losing the fish but it was nice to hear a drag again. Still, it is brutally slow out there.
  8. Ok...I've repaired a couple of them because of the rubber dry rotting. Snapping off is a different animal. Good Luck!
  9. Next to impossible to find. What is the problem with yours?
  10. It's not too bad. I use to work for LoadRite and occasionally had to repossess trailers for non payment. A floor jack is a definite requirement along with a lot of blocks. Cinder blocks help as well.
  11. Heating the board with a propane torch till it is glazed is another way to give an adhesive better grip.
