  • How to Choose the Correct Size Trailer Winch For a Boat Trailer
  • The size winch that you will need depends on a couple of different factors. I have included part of our hand winch FAQ below regarding boat winches and have linked the FAQ article for you to view. Finding the Right Capacity Winch for your Boat Trailer Boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1 With good rollers and short winching distances, increase the ratio to 3 to 1 With wooden bunks and long winching distances, reduce the ratio to 1 to 1 For example, a 2,200-lb boat...

  • Trailer Dolly Recommendation for Moving a Boat Trailer in and out of a Garage
  • The Fulton F2 Swing-Up Trailer Jack # F1413020134 that you referenced would certainly be capable of moving your trailer around as long as the tongue weight of your trailer does not exceed the 1,600 lb capacity of the jack. However, it would not be nearly as easy as using a Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211. I believe I have something that would be ideal for you. Since you are looking for an easy way to move your trailer in and out of your garage I think you might...

  • How to Replace the Strap on the Fulton Trailer Winch # FT2605Z0301
  • Look for the bolt on in the drum on your Fulton Winch, # FT2605Z0301, that is closest to the center of the drum. The bolt and nut that came with the winch use this hole. You will want to have the strap with the sewed side down. Run the bolt through the first hole, only slightly, then through the loop in the strap, and then out the other side of the drum. Secure the nut only tight enough to eliminate the side to side play of the bolt. Over tightening it can damage the drum. All you...

  • How to Mount a Fulton Plastic Fender # F008553 To a Trailer To Support Weight of Stepping On It
  • The Fulton Plastic Fender with Top Step, part # F008553, does not come with mounting hardware. Fulton does not provide mounting bracket kits for the fenders. You can use your fenders original mounting brackets or use the Redline Galvanized Steel, L-Shaped, Bolt-On Brackets, part # PF775-BKT-2. See picture to the right that will show the underside of the fender with the brackets to give an idea of how to mount it to your trailer. I would recommend to install the fender with L-shaped...

  • Replacement Fender for Shorelander Boat Trailer SRV1724
  • Thanks for the information regarding your boat trailer, I was able to look up the tire size of your trailer in order to determine an appropriate replacement fender. I found that the trailer tire specified for your trailer was listed as a ST185/80R13. Therefore the trailer wheel is a 13 inch wheel with an approximate overall diameter of 24.4 inches. If your trailer tire is not this size please feel free to reply with an updated tire size and I can make additional recommendations for you....

  • Wheel Bearing Replacement For Snow Bear Trailer
  • I spoke with Snow Bear and they said they no longer support the utility trailers, so information about your trailer is not available. The best way to find the correct bearings is to get the numbers off of the old bearings. Another method is to take measurements of the spindles, using a precision digital caliper. I have attached a drawing that shows where the measurements need to be taken. If you can get the original part numbers, it would be much more reliable. The drawing shows where...

  • Boat Trailer Winch Recommendation for a 4000 lb Boat on a Performance Aluminum Trailer
  • Finding the right capacity winch for your boat trailer is fairly simple but you have factors that must be taken into consideration. Boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. With good rollers and short winching distances, you could increase the ratio to 3 to 1. With wooden bunks and long winching distances, reduce the ratio to 1 to 1. For a strap style winch I would recommend a Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch w/ Strap, part # FT2605Z0301. This winch will be very...

  • Recommended Parts For Rebuilding Boat Trailer
  • The first item I recommend is the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch w/ Strap, part # FT2005Z0301. This is a 2,000 lb winch and comes with a 20 ft strap included. I have included a link to a product review video for this winch you can check out. If you are wanting wooden bunks, I recommend the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards, part # CE27840. These are 6 ft carpeted 2 x 4 boards that are covered on all 4 sides with marine-grade black carpet. The double-eye leaf springs we...

  • Bolt On Swivel Trailer Jack Recommendation for a 6,000 lb 27 foot Boat Trailer
  • To determine the correct jack capacity for your boat trailer, you will need to know the tongue weight of the trailer. Once the tongue weight is known you can select a jack with a lift capacity that is equal to or greater than the tongue weight of your trailer. Typically tongue weights on boat trailers do not exceed 15 percent of the gross trailer weight capacity. Using this figure your tongue weight most likely will not exceed 1,000 lbs, (slightly more than 15 percent of 6,000 lbs) so...

  • Recommendation for a Spare Trailer Tire Mount for a 6 Lug Trailer Wheel and Tire
  • We have three different spare tire carriers that will accommodate 6 lug wheels. The first is the Fulton High Mount spare tire carrier, FHDSTC0101. It fits wheels up to 16-1/2 inches in diameter. It is for 3 inch by 5 inch trailer tongues and has a 4-3/4 inch lift. The second is a Bumper Mount Spare Tire Carrier, # TR-1. This is designed for 4 inch box bumpers and is 18 inches high. Finally, we have a spare tire carrier for horse and livestock trailers, # 413200. This is a weld on...

  • How to Mount a Fulton Black Plastic Trailer Fender for 14 Inch Tires
  • The great thing about the plastic fenders like # F008554 is that because they require the user to determine the best method of mounting them, you can attach them to the trailer based on what you have available. You can add brackets # PF775-BKT-2 if needed but ultimately as long as they are properly secured it is up to you. You may need to relocate or bend the lower bracket somewhat though based on the measurements of the fender.

  • Replacement Fulton Jack for a Ranger Boat Trailer
  • It is possible that Fulton jack # FTJ120W0301 is the same jack that is used on your Ranger boat trailer. If your current jack is a side wind swivel jack with 10 inches of lift and rated for 1,200 pounds AND it mounts to a bracket welded to the trailer frame and held to it with a snap ring, then yes, this is the correct jack. I have linked a video review of this jack for you. I have also included a link to all of the Fulton side winding swivel jacks for you.

  • Determining Which Trailer Fender Size is Needed
  • Trailer fenders are classified by the diameter of the trailer wheels they're compatible with. For instance, the # F008583 fender you referenced works with 13 inch diameter wheels. If you're unsure of the diameter of your wheels, the last two digits of your tires size will indicate the diameter of the wheel. For example, if your tire size is 185/80-13, 13 represents the diameter of the wheel. Choosing a fender appropriate for the wheel diameter is the most important factor. I've linked...

  • Should I Use a Bolt On or a Weld on Fold Away Coupler On a Shorelander Trailer with 3x3 Frame
  • I more or less agree with you. The Fulton Fold-Away Hinge Kit for 3 x 3 inch Trailer Tongue - Weld-On, item # FHDPW330300, is a cleaner look and if you got a bad weld job you would not have a safe setup. I have done some welding, I am in no way a professional weldor, and in my limited experience a good weld will not fail before the steel it is welded to will fail. If you like the clean look of the weld on I would have a certified weldor perform the operation. If you take the trailer to...

  • Best Swivel Trailer Jack for Salt Water Environment for a Boat Trailer
  • The problem that some people have with the Fulton F2 jacks such as # F1413040134 is that they are not used to seeing plastic pieces on a trailer jack. If you are rough with a piece of plastic, it can break. But at the same time plastic is not going to corrode. If the jack is abused a person could have trouble with it. The metal parts of the jack are aluminum which is naturally corrosion resistant. Other jacks are going to be made of steel and zinc-plated or coated. Steel can rust, even...

  • Getting the Correct Capacity Trailer Hand Winch for a 3,500 Pound Boat
  • Finding the right capacity winch for a boat and boat trailer depends on a few factors. Boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1, but if you have a trailer with good rollers and short winch distances that ratio can increase to 3 to 1. The opposite is also true. If you have wooden bunks and long winching distances the ratio is 1 to 1. Also, the capacity of a winch goes down 10 percent for every additional layer of strap or cable on the drum which is why winching distance is important. If...

  • Comparison Between Fulton 5K And 6K Fast-Lok Coupler
  • The difference between the Fulton Fas-Lok Coupler with a 5,000 lb capacity, part # F343000301 and the 6,000 lb weight capacity coupler part # F346000301 is just that. The weight capacity. Both are a bolt-on installation, designed for 3 inch channel trailers, have trigger latches, and work with a 2 inch ball. The mounting holes are spaced 3 inches apart and both have the Z-Max 600 finish that helps resist corrosion. While the F346000301 coupler is rated at a higher capacity, it sounds...

  • Determining Which Replacement Wheel Bearings Needed for SnowBear 8000 Utility Trailer
  • To find the correct replacement bearings, you will need to pull one of the hubs off and remove the inner and outer bearing to obtain the reference numbers from them. The reference number will be stamped into the steel cage holding the bearings, as seen in the provided photo. Your grease seal will also have a reference number, as shown. If the numbers are unreadable, you can use an accurate measuring tool like a # PTW80157 digital caliper and measure the surfaces of the spindle where...

  • Recommended Fulton Hand Winch Rated for 3,200 Pounds
  • Both the Fulton 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Heavy Duty 20' Strap # FT32ZHD0301 and the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed, 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101 are great winch options for a hand winch. If you're planning on using the winch in an environment where it is likely to get wet, I recommend using the enclosed winch, # FW32000101 to help protect the winch components. The yellow Fulton Heavy-Duty Winch Strap # FWS20HD0200 could be put on the enclosed winch, but the # FW32000101 winch...

  • Recommended Hand Winch to Pull Up a 3,500 Pound Vehicle onto a Tow Dolly
  • There are a few options I recommend when using a winch to pull a 3,500 pound car onto a tow dolly. The Fulton single speed hand winch # FT1801Z0301 will have a 20 foot strap and 1,800 pound capacity. A winch can pull a rolling load that exceeds its rated capacity, but an incline, like the ramps on your tow dolly, adds some resistance. To find the amount of load that can be pulled up an incline, multiply the winch capacity by the factor shown in the chart (see the help article on hand...

  • How to Install the Spring on a Fulton T1401 Trailer Winch
  • Schematics and pictures are nice, but I did you one better and made a video showing how you put the spring in. For the record, on the spring at the very ends one sticks out longer than the one on the other side. The longer one fits into the hole on the winch body. The shorter one then goes through the bottom hole on the lever. If you have any questions about he installation or the video I wil be happy to help.

  • Parts Needed to Replace Axle and Fenders on a Trailstar Boat Trailer
  • There are several factors that will contribute to the parts you will need to replace the axle. Primarily you will need to know the capacity you need and some measurements. I have included a link to the right to the axles we carry. We carry the most common sizes of straight, round axles in various capacities and lengths, and with various equipment. All have the spindles already. Some come with hubs, some with brakes. The important measurements are the distance from hub face to hub face...

  • Installation Instructions for a Shorter Boat Trailer Fold Away Coupler Hinge Kit
  • The length of the fold away can be shortened in most circumstances. If you have a 3 x 4 inch trailer tongue then the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, item # FHDPB340301, can be used and the extension out front can be cut to any length shorter than the maximum pivot length listed in the chart I have linked. As an example, this means that if your gross trailer weight, loaded and ready to tow, is 7,500 pounds and the tongue weight is 750 pounds, your pivot length can be 27 inches (maximum)...

  • Looking for Replacement Fenders for 1999 Spartan Boat Trailer
  • I don't have a fender that exactly matches the dimensions you provided, but the Fulton fender, # F008583 for black, # F008573 for white and # F008593 for silver come pretty close. The fender is 9 inches wide, 12 inches tall and 40 inches long, as you can see in the provided diagram. Each fender would attach to the trailer using the # PF1135-BKT-2 brackets, which includes two brackets. For two fenders, you'd need two sets of brackets.

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Jack For Seized Up Shelby Model 5784
  • It sounds like the jack was over extended at some point and the threads on the internal screw have become damaged. It could also be corrosion or a foreign object that is prohibiting normal operation. Since the screw cannot be replaced and taking the jack completely apart would be nearly impossible I recommend a replacement jack. Based on the model jack you have I recommend the 1500 pound Shelby jack # 5876A8. The mounting holes are different though but the jack does come with its own...

  • How to Install the Spring in the Ratchet Repair Kit for Fulton Winch, # 1562S00-SP
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled one of the winches the Ratchet Repair Kit for Fulton Winch, # 1562S00-SP, and took it apart. I got to use tools so I was happy to do so. The spring is the trickiest part of this particular assembly because if it is not in the right place, the winch will not ratchet correctly (as I found out). The whole assembly will need to be loose to position the spring. But as far as placement, on the inside of the winch, one end of the spring goes through the small...

  • Black Plastic Fender Recommendation for a Harbor Freight Trailer
  • You have 12 inch rims, but extra 3/4 of an inch you measured is for the lip of the tire that does not count towards the overall diameter. The black fenders part # F008559 should work well for you, but to utilize your current mounting setup you would need to trim these fenders near the underside so that you could attach them to your mounting brackets. You would also need to drill through the top of the fenders too.
