  • Where to find VIN Number on a Used Utility 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...

  • Where is the Trailer Serial or VIN Number Located
  • The vehicle identification number or serial number for a trailer is usually found on a plate or sticker on the trailer frame, usually on the tongue. It will also list the capacity of the trailer and/or other information. For a Shelby coupler, the model number may be stamped into the metal on top or on the underside of the coupler.

  • Trailer Jack Assembly is Stuck in the Extended Postion
  • A coworker of mine had the same problem that you are having with his jack assembly that would not retract once fully extended. The solution he came up with was to manually spin the inner tube of the jack to get it to free up. Try spinning the inner tube of the jack counter clockwise, then clockwise to see if you can get it to retract again. If that does not work, then look for more serious issues such as stripped gears or the threaded shaft that the inner tube extends and retracts on...

  • Quality Heavy Duty Hand Winches Needed to Safely Raise and Lower Baseball Backstop Netting
  • As long as each winch would not be required to lift over 600 lbs, I recommend going with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL14125, which is capable of lifting up to 600 lbs and is a very economical choice. This winch will accept up to 61 feet of 5/32 cable and you could use a 50 foot length of 3/16 inch diameter cable, # DL24044. If you are required to use 3/8 inch diameter cable, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson 3,200 lb Hand Winch, # DL15440, which should have more than the...

  • What does Ratchet Style Two-Way Mean on Shelby 1,400 lbs. Single Speed Winch, # 5405,
  • On the Shelby 1,400 lbs. Single Speed Winch, # 5405, the ratchet style two-way means that you will be able to ratchet the load in or let it out by ratcheting the handle, so when letting a load out the weight of the load will not just totally let go. The rated capacity on the Shelby 1,400 lbs. Single Speed Winch, # 5405, is 1,400 lbs. and the gear ratio is 4.1 to 1. A winch you might look at is the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch Self-Locking, # DL15721, it has a rated capacity of 2,500...

  • A trailers serial or VIN should be located on a sticker or plate on the trailer frame near the front of the trailer. It is often on the side of the frame on the outboard side but it could also be on the inboard side of the frame. The information on the coupler pertains only to the coupler.

  • What Size Hitch Ball is Needed for a 17 foot Boston Whaler Montauk on a Factory Trailer
  • I did a bit of research and found that if your trailer is the original trailer from Boston Whaler, it should have a 2 inch coupler on it. This would mean that you need to select a 2 inch hitch ball that is rated for the total weight of your trailer and all contents fully loaded, fueled and ready to tow. I attached a link to all of the hitch balls that we stock for you to select from. My personal choice would be the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set, # 903B, which is stainless steel...

  • How To Determine What Size Ball I Need For A Trailer Coupler That Does Not Have Size Listed
  • I looked up the Shelby 5133 coupler and it said it uses a 2 inch hitch ball. You will also need to get the right ball shank diameter and ball shank length. The ball mount will determine the diameter and length. If you measure the hole size diameter in your ball mount, that will give you the ball shank diameter, there is a 3/4 inch, 1 inch and 1-1/4 inches diameter available. You will need to measure the thickness of the ball mount to determine the ball shank length. Short length...

  • Does the Shelby 1400 lbs Single Speed Winch Include a Strap for Boats
  • The Shelby 1,400 lbs Single Speed Winch, # 5405, does not include a strap to connect to your boat. The recommended strap for this winch is the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, # DL24260. If you are looking for a winch that includes a strap, then I would recommend the Fulton 1,500 lbs Single Speed Winch, # FT1500Z0301. This winch will also provide you with a slightly higher load capacity. I have attached an article on hand winches for you to check out.

  • Replacement Strap for the Shelby 3,200 lbs. Two-Speed Winch # 5480 and # 5481
  • The # 5480 and # 5481 Shelby 3,200 lbs. Two-Speed Winches utilize a cable and the manufacturer does not recommend the use of a strap with these winches. The drum width is 2-3/4 inches and the mounting pattern is the same for both winches. The main difference between the 2 winches is that the 5481 model has a hand brake that allows you to control the load when in free wheel mode. The correct replacement cable for these winches would be one like the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook, #...

  • Replacement 2,800 Pound Shelby Hand Winch for a Boat Trailer
  • The Shelby trailer winch # 5470 could be the same one that you have but I checked with Shelby and there are several models of the 5470. This one is the basic model and it is steel. The mounting hardware is not included but you can re-use the old mounting hardware if its in good shape. I do not recommend a cable for marine applications. Instead I recommend a strap because nylon is corrosion resistant. The length you need depends on the distance needed to let the boat out in the water...

  • Where to Find Vehicle Identification Number on Haulmark Trailer
  • I contacted Haulmark and was advised that in most instances the VIN will be on the tongue, on the driver's side near the coupler. If the trailer is less than 10 years old there could be a sticker on the driver's side trailer body. If you have the title certificate or previous registration document these should indicate the VIN. The vehicle identification number (VIN) or serial number for a trailer is usually found on a plate or sticker on the trailer frame, most often on the trailer's...

  • Bolt Through Trailer Jack Recommendations for a Trailer with Single Bolt Through Mount
  • The Shelby Bolt-On Trailer Jack, # 5874A8, is designed to bolt around the trailer frame with the included mounting hardware. I posted a photo showing the type of hardware included with this jack. The jack tube itself does have a weld on plate that is bolted, with a single bolt, to the mounting plate that is used to attach the jack to the trailer frame. If you need a bolt through style jack we have several to choose from. From Shelby we have the Weld-On Trailer Jack, # 5876A8, which...

  • Where is the VIN Number Located on a Trailer
  • Usually the VIN on a trailer is on a plate or sticker on the tongue or frame. Usually it is at the front of the trailer and it could be on the outboard side of the frame or inboard. It should be a 19 character VIN. If you cannot locate the VIN then you would need to have the state police inspect the trailer and assign one. You may want to speak with the local DMV office for the correct procedure in your state if you cannot find the VIN.

  • Installing 2 Inch Strap On My Shelby Trailer Winch # 5408
  • I contacted our representative at Shelby about installing a strap with the Shelby Trailer Winch, part # 5408. She informed me that any 2 inch strap, like the Dutton-Lainson Strap # DL24260, will work with the Shelby Winch # 5408. The strap should attach to holes on the reel, that are near the hub of the winch on each side of the reel. The Shelby winch representative sent a diagram of the winch, I have marked where the bolt holes are where the strap bolt should attach.

  • How to Get a Trailer VIN if the VIN is Missing or Cant be Read
  • If you have ever registered the trailer before then the DMV should have it on file and you could get the VIN from them. Otherwise you will have to have a highway patrol officer inspect the trailer and assign a VIN. You might need to contact your local DMV to make sure this practice is done in your state. I am not sure what the laws are in Australia but I am assuming you need the VIN in order to ship the trailer to Australia and not necessarily to register the trailer in Australia.

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

  • Shelby Trailer Jack # 5874A8 Stuck in Max Position
  • I have had similar problems with jacks at home where the jack would get stuck and I would have to manually spin the inner tube of the jack to get it to free back up. What I would do is try to spin the inner tube of the jack first counter clockwise, and then clockwise to see if you can get it moving again. That might get it back on track and allow it to work for you. I actually had a similar problem earlier today on a jack I was measuring. After I cranked the jack to its maximum height...

  • Recommend A Winch And Parts Need To Winch A 15 Foot Raft
  • To use the winch you selected, Shelby 1,900 lbs. Single Speed Winch, part # 5408, you would need to use a winch post with mounting plate on top or a different style winch such as a ratchet crank or top-mounted handle winch. When selecting a winch, generally with a boat you want to select a winch that has twice the capacity of the boat. If you were to use rollers on your trailer, you could use a lower capacity winch as you would not be pulling a static load. If you are using wooden bunks...
