  • Kuat Transfer V2 3-Bike Rack vs. RockyMounts WestSlope 3-Bike Rack
  • Those are a couple of great options you mentioned, but between the RockyMounts WestSlope 3-Bike Rack # RKY10223 and the Kuat Transfer V2 3-Bike Rack # KU24FR, I would definitely go with the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU24FR.

Starting with ease of use, while the WestSlope uses a threaded hitch pin that requires you to use a ratchet like # PTW38106-24 to install, with the Transfer V2 you simply slide its...

  • How to Identify Needed Replacement Hubs for Adams Manufacturing Drift Boat Trailer
  • The best way to find the correct replacement hub is to obtain the reference numbers from the inner and outer wheel bearing. I've provided a photo showing where to find the reference number on the bearing. The inner bearing would most likely be a L44643, a L44649 or a L68149. The outer would most likely be a L44643 or a L44649. If you'd reply with the bearing numbers, I'd be happy to recommend a set of replacement hubs for you.

  • Best Drill Bit for Enlarging Frame Holes in a 2018 Hyundai Sonata for Trailer Hitch
  • The step-up drill bit that you are using is great for many things such as large holes but when drilling smaller uniform holes in thicker metal they are not the best tool to use. Instead, you will want to look into a standard drill bit that is designed for metal such as the 1/2" Titanium Drill Bit part # PTW8589. I would also be sure to use some sort of lubricant and a high powered drill. The combination of these three items will make for the most seamless process. If you have a neighbor...

  • How to Measure Trailer Spindle & Hub to Determine Grease Seal Dimensions
  • Since we do not offer any hubs that take the bearing set L44649 and L44610 the best way to determine which grease seal you need for your spindle is to measure it to three decimal places (like 1.234-inches) with a precision caliper like # PTW80157. Please refer to the linked photo that shows where to measure your spindles for the seal's inner diameter (position B). You will also need to measure the hub's bore where the seal will be installed; this will tell you the outer diameter for...

So, it is best to measure the spindles, rather than the old seal, for the seal's inner diameter since the spindles are unlikely to have their dimensions change at all.
