    Bow Roller Replacement - 2011 Ranger Trail Trailer

    The bow roller has become deformed & doesnít rotate much so Iím going to replace it w/ an OEM SeaSense roller from Ranger (or a 3rd party vendor etc). I looked around @ other brand options (Stolz etc) but they all seem to come with various cons & pros from the guys who tried them. Bottom line - I know the SeaSense works so that's what I'm going to go with.


    So that said: what sort of job can I expect ? Iíd like to do the job @ the local lake - put the boat the water and do the repair. My concern is with the roller as deformed as it is it could be a mofo to get off / work on. Iím prepared to bring my big hammer, mallet, ratchets and wrenches - I just donít want to get the job done half way & get stuck @ the lake . Maybe a safer bet to do it @ the house ? Any words of advice ?

    Thanks!

    Do yourself a favor and get a hold of Drewtek on the Phoenix boards. He got me hooked up with a roller for my Charger. It loads and unloads better than ever!!

    Thanks Guys ... so Drewytick - would you happen to have a Stoltz Part # for my 2011 Ranger Trailer trailer ? I doubt it makes a difference but it's a dual. Also do you suggest replacing the entire roller assembly or just the middle roller ? The OEM SeaSense roller comes in three parts - two wing rollers and the center roller and there are growing "gaps" between the mid roller and side rollers <-- one of the reasons it needs to be replaced - bow eyelet occasionally slips into these gaps when loading.

    With the Stolz will there be gaps if I keep the original SeaSense wing rollers ?

    I hope what I'm asking makes sense.
