Expert Answers about Fulton

  • 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...

  • Recommended Method of Attaching Marine Grade Carpet # FCR8008 To Trailer Bunks
  • From my research, it seems that a combination stapling the carpet to the bunks using stainless or Monel (primarily an alloy of copper and nickel) staples and outdoor carpet adhesive is the preferred method of attaching carpet. I replaced the bunks on my PWC trailer with new pressure-treated 2x4s and the Fulton marine grade carpeting you mentioned. I used stainless staples on the underside of the bunks along with a thin bead of Liquid nails on the top and sides of the boards. I replaced...

  • What is the Preferred Method of Connecting Safety Chains from a Trailer to a Trailer Hitch
  • Provided that you have safety chains rated as high or higher than the hitch capacity and they are securely connected to the safety chain loops on the trailer hitch, how you route them is not really an issue. You just do not want them to bind up (get wrapped around anything when making turns) as that could cause damage. So what most people do is have some sort of loop, like # 49135, connected to the trailer and then have the chains connected to it. The chains are then connected straight...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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. But the weight capacity is only 45 pounds so keep that in mind. 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...

  • 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.

  • Attaching Safety Chains to a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty with New Safety Chain Design
  • From the picture that you sent me it looks like you could possibly use a quick link like part # 49135 and leave it connected for easy access to hook up your safety chains when towing. The Fulton Safety Chains Quick Link # 49135 is a 1/2" link that is rated for up to 10,000 lbs Break Strength and 3,300 lbs Safe Working Lead Limit. This would be a great option for your situation and would make connecting and disconnecting your safety chains much easier. You can verify if this will fit...

  • Trailer Jack Repair or Replacement Parts
  • The nut you are seeing in the inner pipe is not designed to be replaced. It sounds as if your jack was wound past is working limit and either broke or ruined the threads on the lift rod. You will need to replace the jack, if this is the case. The parts you referred to, # F0933306S00, are located in the top of the jack and can be replaced. If you open the top of the jack and find these parts damaged, send me the make-model number of your jack and I will be glad to help determine the correct...

  • 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 for Shelby # 5756 1200 lb Jack
  • The Shelby # 5776 is the direct replacement for the # 5756, but we do not offer that particular jack. The Fulton # FTJ120W0301 that you referenced would make an acceptable replacement. The capacity and the amount of lift or travel is identical. Both jacks are weld-on applications and both have a corrosion inhibiting zinc plated finish. The Fulton jack dimension from the bottom of the mounting bracket to the bottom of the caster when fully retracted is 13 inches, 23 inches when fully...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation to Replace Shelby 5756A Trailer Jack
  • Based on my research, the Fulton Round, Snap-Ring Swivel Marine Jack # FTJ120W0301 will be a perfect replacement for your Shelby 5756A trailer jack. This jack will allow you to use the existing snap ring jack mount on your trailer for installation. The trailer jack has a 1,200 pound weight capacity and a 10 inch lift. The snap ring pilot hole diameter is 2.313 inches and the retracted bracket height is 13 inches. Note that the jack does include a weld-on mounting plate, but you can use...

  • Adjusting Latch On Trailer Coupler with Trigger Latch
  • To adjust the hitch latch on your trailer's coupler, you will want to adjust the nut at the bottom of the latch. This nut will be tightened or loosened depending on what you need for your coupler. I have attached a diagram showing you the location of the nut that you will want to adjust. The ball needs to be secured in the coupler and unable to simply come off. However, there should be some room for play. The hitch ball needs to be able to move inside the coupler so that nothing binds...

  • 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 # F142306 has a 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 winches I included). For example,...

  • Procedure to Re-Install Trailer Side Marker Lights
  • Installation methods will vary depending on the nature of the particular light you are using. We offer a wide range of clearance/marker lights (all can be seen on the link provided) and these include flange-, flush- and surface-mount types. You can use the filters in the left-hand margin to narrow the product results shown to just those light that meet your requirements. You can sort by lens color, bulb type, mounting type, brand and dimensions. For example, in 2-1/2- x 1-1/2-inch size...

  • Possible Fender Replacement for Master Tow Dolly 70LP
  • I checked out the master tow dolly 70LP online and it looks like the Fulton Plastic Fender, item # F008554, will mount to the brackets on the tow dolly, as long as the wheels on the tow dolly are no larger than 14 inches. The original equipment size for the master tow 70LP is 14 inches.

  • Recommend Hand Winch To Winch a 21.5 Foot 4,000 lb Boat
  • The guideline when selecting a winch is to weigh the boat when it is fully loaded and ready to travel with supplies, gas, etc. Then, take the gross weight and divide by 1.5, which will tell you the capacity winch you will need. You will want to weigh your boat with it loaded like you were going on a boat outing. If you are trying to winch the boat without submerging the trailer and not getting your bunks wet, this can add more strain to the winch. If you are doing so, you would want...

  • 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...

  • The Best Bolt-On Swivel Trailer Jack for a Boat Trailer
  • Think of bolt-through as bolt-on without drilling any holes in the trailer frame. Bolt-around might be a better way to describe how the Fulton trailer jack # FXP15L attaches to the trailer frame. Snap ring jacks like # PSEJ10000101 as an example have a snap ring, see picture, that holds the jack to a mounting bracket. The Fulton jack is attached to the mounting bracket via a bolt in the center. For a marine swivel jack with a wheel a Fulton F2 jack, such as # F1413140334, would offer...

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for a 10,000 lb Trailer
  • I would have a qualified weldor, weld a Safety Chain Loop, # E950, to the bottom or side of the trailer frame and then attach safety chains, like part # 2118-348-04, with Safety Chain Quick Links, # 2114-553-04. You may also need to extend the original chains with quick links and added chain, like part # TR63035, which has 6 feet of chain. Each of these chains has a 5k capacity so with 2 you would have a 10k capacity.

  • 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.

  • Swing Away Hinge Kit Recommendation for Boat Trailer
  • It sounds like you have a standard pole tongue trailer and are looking for a swing away hinge kit. We offer a few of these kits that are designed to fit several frame sizes. The part # FHDPB350101 will work if you have a 3 by 5 inch trailer tongue. The part # FHDPB340301 will fit 3 x 4, the part # FHDPB330301 will fit 3 x 3 and the part # FHDPB230101 will fit 2 x 3. You will need to measure your trailer tongue so that you can pick out the correct kit. I attached an install video...

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Fender Bracket for Escort Boat Trailer
  • I was able to find photos of Escort single-axle boat trailers with the top/side step fenders. The fenders that we offer that have top/side steps are all plastic units which can be seen on the link provided. Installation brackets are not included with any of these but we do offer general-purpose fender brackets. Unfortunately there is no way to know the exact ones originally installed on your trailer. You can simply enter the phrase 'fender bracket' into our search box to see all available...

  • How to Determine Needed WLL Capacity in Boat Winch Strap
  • While you never want to exceed an item's working load limit (WLL) in your actual application, the nature of your trailer matters too when selecting a winch strap. If you have roller bunks rather than carpeted bunks this reduces friction and means that a given winch or strap could be strong enough. With typical wooden bunks and long winching distances (over 25-feet) the boat weight-to-winch capacity ratio is 1 to 1. But if your trailer uses roller bunks and shorter winching distances...
