  • Where on Trailer to Find VIN Information
  • If it's not located on the outside of the frame members that make up the trailer tongue, it might be on the inside of the frame members, so you might want to check there first. Then, examine the rest of the frame. I've also seen the information on the front of the trailer. If the trailer has a toolbox, propane bottles or other obstructions on the tongue, they might be covering the VIN plate.

  • Where are Trailer VINs Typically On a Trailer for Registering
  • Usually commercial trailer manufacturers will indicate the unique vehicle identification number (VIN) on the same plaque that carries their brand name, model number information and the trailer specifications. The model number of the trailer is not the same as the VIN number; the same model number may be used on multiple trailers but a VIN number is unique and individual to each one produced. If you cannot find the VIN on the trailer tongue you can check for plaques on other parts of...

  • How to Find the VIN Number for a 1964 International Harvester Trailer
  • Usually the plate with the VIN and other information on a trailer is located on the tongue or front part of the frame. It could be on the outboard side or the inboard side. If not there you will have to check the frame front to back inside and out. In the event that you cannot locate the plate usually what you will have to do is have the Highway Patrol inspect and then assign a new VIN. Check the local DMV in your area to see if this procedure is the same in your state.

  • Recommendation of a Winch that has a capacity of 2100 Pounds for a Boat Trailer
  • Unfortunately, we don't currently carry a replacement for the Shelby 5409 with a 2100 pound capacity. We do carry additional winches that may work with your boat trailer. The Fulton single speed winch # FT21000301 is rated for 2100 pound maximum capacity or a Dutton Lainson hand winch # DL14825 which has a 2500 pound maximum capacity. You may also consider a Dutton-Lainson heavy duty brake winch # DL10786 which has a rating of 2500 pounds. The brake is automatically applied when cranking...

  • Coupler Repair Kit For A Trailer With No Visible Make Or Model
  • Most of the couplers used on trailers have the make and model number stamped into the surface somewhere.

Many of the couplers use components that are very similar looking but may vary in size because they are made for a specific couplers.

  • Will Replacement Jack Caster Wheel JC101 Fit an Unknown Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • Caster # JC101 is designed to fit a 2-1/4 inch Shelby jack tube. If your jack has the same measurements you could use this caster. However the jack will need to have a hole for the pin to secure the wheel to the jack. Most powered A-frame trailer jacks do not have wheels because wheels limit the capacity of the jack to whatever the capacity of the wheel is. This wheel is rated for 2,000 pounds so if your jack is also rated for 2,000 pounds there would be no loss in capacity.

  • Can the Inner Leg of a Shelby Trailer Jack be Reinstalled After Taking Apart the Jack
  • Actually, you are going to need to replace the jack. What likely happened was the nut, screw or both inside have sustained thread damage and will not work right again. Many jacks have a screw with intentionally smashed threads at the end. This is to prevent the jack from over extending. If the good threads get to that damaged part then it damages the nut threads. This would also prevent it from installing correctly. I wish there was an easier way for you but the best and safest thing...

  • Is it Required that a Swivel Jack Be Fully Retracted Before Towing
  • Well since this jack can fold up for storage you would not need to fully retract it before you can tow. I have had trailers with similar jacks and found that I could just crank the jack up until the wheel comes off of the ground and then pull the pin in the jack and rotate it 90 degrees and be done with it. There's no reason you would have to fully retract this jack to use it. A 3 to 1 ratio might make for difficult cranking as well since you wouldn't have the same leverage over...

  • Hand Winch for Installing Tents that Allows Controlled Movement of a Load
  • What you need is a brake winch. Dutton Lainson winch # DL15303 is not a brake winch and you would be in the same situation as you are with the existing winches. Since you need controlled movement of a load and it is a hoisting situation, the ideal winch for you is a worm gear winch like # DL10950 or one of the other ones I have linked to the right. Worm gear winches are brake winches. Let go of the handle and the load stops. They do not need a minimum load to operate and letting go...

The 4 holes at the front of the mounting plate are 3/8 inch diameter. The distance between The 3 front holes...

  • Would a Boat Trailer VIN Ever Be Only 6 Digits Long
  • The VIN of a trailer should be much longer than 6 numbers/letters. I attached a picture that shows how to decode a VIN for you to check out to give you a better idea on what they typically look like. It sounds like you may have found just the serial number for the trailer. I would recommend you keep looking. Otherwise you might need to apply for a new VIN with your local DOT if you can't find it.

  • Using VIN to Determine Length of 2007 TNT Utility Trailer
  • There is a way to decode a trailer VIN. The first three digits denote the code for the manufacturer. The next two digits denote the model of the trailer. The next two digits are the length in feet of the trailer, which in your case is 16 feet, followed by the number of axles the trailer has, which is two in your case. The next digit is a check digit, but the following digit is the year the trailer was manufactured, which in your case is 2007. For more information, you can call your trailer...

  • trailer vin
  • If the trailer has ever been registered with the department of motor vehicles in your state, or any state, then those governing bodies would be who to ask. We do not have a way to look up a trailer or vehicle VIN at this time. According to a VIN decoder I found online the first 3 digits indicate the manufacturer. In this case it would be 17F but they do not say who that is. The next 2 digits are the type of trailer but there wasn't a DL option. The next 2 digits indicate the length,...

  • Installation of the Shelby Replacement Gear Kit # 5772-82 in their Sidewind Drop Leg Trailer Jack # 6108SW is straightforward. According to my contact at Shelby once you remove the plastic top cap from the outer jack tube you will have access to the pin that holds the crank handle in place. Remove this pin and the handle will come free, giving you access to the gears and the pins that secure them. It is a good idea to apply some general purpose grease to the new gear set before replacing...

  • 3,200 lb Capacity, American Made Winch Recommendation
  • I went out into our warehouse and measured the drum hub of the Shelby Jack part # 5480 and found that it measures 1-7/8 inches in diameter. This winch and the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 are both very similar. Both are made in the US, have 3,200 lb capacities, are two speed jacks, and both have very similar gear ratios. The Dutton Lainson has a 5 year limited warranty, whereas the Shelby has a 3 year limited warranty. I would lean towards the Dutton Lainson because of the warranty...
