  1. What would make a Fortrex screech/squeal/whine/noisy when deployed?

    Thing has been in the stowed position for the better part of 4 years due to other boat work going on. Now it's ridiculously loud when deployed, through the first half of the motion. From the point...

    I use this, zero rattle from the receiver in the hitch, highly recommended.

    I have an '19 JGC Trail Hawk with 5.7l. Had two Overland versions with EcoDiesel before it. Both certainly towed well but both were problematic. I wanted to like that little diesel, but it let me...

    That's the way it is on a 191, with the rear base directly over the live well so that it if were rained into, or anything small fell into it, it's going to end up in the LW. I would suspect many if...

    When you all say long leaders, in general if it's possible to generalize, what are we talking about? 10ft, 20ft?

    Is there a way to adjust speed of deploy/retract when operating them via Lowrance head unit? Seems like it's on highest setting, I haven't figured out a way to change it.

    If I had a truck, I would for sure. SUV, haul dogs in the back. I have been putting it in and taking it out on fishing days, that is getting old.

    Aluminum or steel frame? Tube or channel? How is the spare tire carrier attached to the trailer? Great looking trailer.

    Yay! Glad you found one. What a trip for a boat! But I would have done the same. Great story to start off your 202 adventure with.

    BTW, I could be wrong, but I suspect the "going to sell to my...

    I don't know what the price difference is between the ecoboost and the 3L diesel, but that would also factor in to cost of ownership.

    I had two Grand Cherokees with the 3L EcoDiesel. It was a...

    I'll have to consider it then. Makes sense. This trailer has EZ Loader's I-Tube frame, so I think I have to get one from them, it has a spacer insert type thing that goes in the channel part for...

    This would be the idea for a mount between first and second cross members of the trailer. Mock up with 2x4.

    Spare won't fit after Hamby's install

    Trailer has the belly basket for the spare, which I prefer to the side carry style. Clearance of the keel to the spare was close before, now the spare won't fit with the Hamby's on. The tire is about...

    Betcha that 198 likes the weight loss program too. The idea of 4 50s is a good one, still would be well less than the weight of two Group 29 or 21 lead batteries.

    Overall, I was also initially...

    I took the case apart, dry as a bone inside. All bearings looked good plenty of grease. There was a little bit of crud build up in the slots of the comutator...

    Excessively noisy or normal Fortrex

    Hadn't noticed the ticking sound much before. It's not quite as harsh in person as in the videos but it is noticable. Am I just looking for a problem? I don't want to be. I feel like I should know if...

    ok, thanks. Yes, for sure it's far from trolling motor power of any kind. It does come kind of close to the main harness from the engine, but in my starboard aft compartment, where the main rigging...

    Thanks gents. I have a friend that runs an automotive repair shop, I think I've seen Amsoil stuff around his place, I'll have to check with him, maybe he could be a source for it too.
