  • Where Is Model Number Located On Trailer
  • Most trailers should have a sticker or a plate with model number and other information affixed to the frame near the front of the trailer, possibly on the underside. Many trailer manufacturers attach them in different areas so sometimes they are tough to locate. If you are unable to find the information you might be able to contact the manufacturer and they would be able to help.

  • Heavy Duty Winch Recommendation for Lowering a Boat and Trailer Down a Boat Ramp
  • To save your back I would go with an electric winch. Without knowing the incline percentage of your boat ramp and the weight of your boat it's hard to say exactly what would be the capacity you would need. Based on your previous winch having a 3,200 lb capacity I would recommend you go with the Superwinch AC3000 AC Powered Winch # 1730000 since it has a 3,000 lb capacity and is our highest rated winch. Now to determine what rating winch you will need check out the chart I attached. First...

  • When Were Vehicle Identification Numbers(VIN) First Used
  • According to my research a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) was used since 1954. There was no accepted standard for these numbers so different manufacturers used different formats. In 1981 the united States standardized the format. It required all over-the-road vehicles to contain a 17-character VIN. The VIN does not include the letters I, O, or Q, to avoid confusion with the numbers 1 and 0.

  • 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.

  • How to Find a Trailer VIN on a Camping Trailer
  • 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...

  • Cable Recommendation for a Shelby 3,200 lbs Winch # 5481
  • With the Shelby 3,200 lbs winch # 5481 you will have to use a cable like the part # DL24100. Since this winch wasn't designed for use with a strap there is no way to attach one to it effectively. For a different 3,200 lb winch that uses a strap instead of the cable I would recommend the # FW32000101. Check out the review video I attached.

  • 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.

  • Interchangeable Hitch Ball Recommendation For 2001 Keystone Camplite Pop-Up Camper
  • You will want to make sure you have the correct hitch ball mounted for your 2001 Keystone Camper. even though a 1-7/8 inch ball will fit, it can become a major safety issue if the coupler is designed for a larger hitch ball. One big bump and the coupler could jump off the smaller ball. If you are unable to determine the ball size you have a couple of options. You will want to measure the hole on the ball mount that the hitch ball shank uses. I imagine it is 3/4 inch, but some ball mounts...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. If you are unable to find the make and model number, you may want to consider replacing the coupler on the trailer. Many of the couplers use components that are very similar looking but may vary in size because they are made for a specific couplers. It would be a hit or miss if you found a repair kit that would work for you. You can measure your trailer, and use those dimensions...

  • 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,...

  • Winch Recommendation for Moving Pieces of a Tree
  • A better option for you would be the Shelby 3,200 lbs. Two-Speed Winch # 5480. This winch has more capacity, has 2 speeds to allow you to winch in lighter pieces at a faster rated and heavier ones slower with more leverage. This winch also has a free wheel option which will allow you to easily pull the cable out to get down your hill.

  • Ceiling Hoist Recommendation for Raising an Attic Ladder in a Garage
  • Winches should not be used for loads over areas where people may be present. Since there will be people present in your garage I have a better solution for you, but it wouldn't be a winch. Instead I would recommend the Gear Up Deluxe Hoist System # GU40030. This product is designed to do exactly what you are looking to do.

  • Double Wheel Jack Recommendation Similar to Shelby 5858 Jack
  • We don't carry the Shelby 5858A jack, but we do carry several other Shelby jacks like the part # 5874A8. This has a single wheel though. For a jack that is similar that does have a double wheel check out the MaxxTow Jack part # MT70149. This jack has double wheels and a 1,500 lb capacity. I attached a review video for this jack for you to check out as well.
