Expert Answers about Performance Tool

  • Recommended Solar Panel Connection for Furrion Prewired Solar Connection on Trailer
  • The 2.5-Watt Solar Battery Charger # PTW2997 is a great option for your solar charging needs on the go. This product will not completely supply the needs of your Furrion camera system but can be used along with a battery to charge the battery so the battery can power the unit. I recommend the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 25 Amp # 331-BCDC1225D which will allow you to have power from a solar panel amplified and will amplify the trailer battery...

  • Is a Solar Powered Battery Charger Good for Charging a Trailer Battery that Powers a Winch
  • A solar powered charger such as # PTW2997 is a great option but can take a long time to charge a battery; especially a battery large enough to power a winch. If you go solar make sure that the battery is fully charged before winching so that the charge (hopefully) lasts the whole time you need the winch. That way you aren't relying on a charger to charge up the battery since it will take a while. Another option is a DC to DC charger that you can keep mounted on the trailer and attach...

  • Do Mobile Home Axles Have Weight Capacity Rating
  • Mobile home axles are designed for a one time use and do not have a load rating. You may be able to find hubs and drums and other hub components for the specific spindles you have on the axles but that can be very difficult as mobile home axles typically have non-standard sizes. I have attached a drawing that shows where you would need to measure on your spindle for the replacement components. You will want to measure the spindle in the places where the bearing ride and also the inside...

  • Recommended Jack Stands For Long-Term Trailer Storage To Protect Tires
  • The best way to preserve your tires is to put the trailer up on jack stands, partially deflate the tires and protect them from UV rays which shouldn't be an issue in garage storage. As a general rule of thumb, trailer tires should be replaced every 6 to 8 years regardless of wear. Even though an older tire might appear to have plenty of tread left on it, dry rot and cracking can cause tire failure. You mentioned age not being the issue, so the only cause of separation is misuse or manufacturer...

  • Replacement Rotor With Hub For 2008 Tahoe Boat Trailer Q5SA
  • We have many different options, but unfortunately I can't tell by the photo what bearings you need for that spindle. I'll need you to help me with inner and outer bearing numbers (which are printed on the face of the bearings) or I'll need you to measure the spindle with a digital caliper like # PTW80157 at the bearing and seal locations. I've attached a photo to assist. I've also linked the page for rotor with integrated hub for your convenience.

  • Hub and Parts Replacement for Dexter Axle
  • You can use a different bolt pattern as long as the bearing numbers are the same. The easiest way for you to identify the replacement parts you are going to need for the hub is by identifying the inner and outer bearing numbers on your old hubs, which will be stamped directly on the bearings themselves. You would also be able to do this by measuring the spindle to the thousandths of an inch by using a digital caliper such as # PTW80157; you can use the attached photo as a guide for what...

  • Converting Grease Hubs To Oil Bath On Skeeter Dual Axle Boat Trailer
  • The best way to find the correct bearings and hubs for your Skeeter boat trailer is to remove the hub from one of the wheels and check out the numbers on the bearings you have. I have attached a photo that shows where you can usually find the numbers on the hub components. If you are unable to find the numbers you can use a digital caliper like part # PTW80157, and measure the spindle in the locations noted on the attached photo. Some hubs can be converted to an oil bath but they must...

  • Solar Panel Charger that Could be Used to Charge Stored RV Battery
  • If your batteries are all wired together in parallel you could use the Solar Panel charger part # PTW2997 which can give up to a 2.5 watt charge in sunlight. It wouldn't do much but it would keep a charged battery topped off if you had sunlight.

  • Replacement Hubs and Bearings for 1994 Shoreland'r Boat Trailer
  • To determine which bearings are used on your 1994 Shoreland'r Boat Trailer, you will need take the hub off and check for the numbers that should be stamped onto the bearings themselves. You can also measure the inner diameter of the bearings or the spindle at the bearing seats if you cannot locate the numbers. I have attached an image that shows where the spindle measurements should be taken. I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 for exact measurements. For replacement...

  • Recommended Jack Stands to Elevate Boat and Trailer for Storage with Weight Off Tires
  • For your boat trailer, to keep the weight off the tires for storage, I recommend the 2-Ton Jack Stands - Qty 2 # PTW41021. Each jack can hold 4,000 lbs, but I recommend using 4 of these spaced as evenly as possible to keep the weight off the wheels and then just use the trailer jack for a 5th point of support and balance.

  • How to Select Replacement Grease Seals for Boat Trailers
  • Thank you for the grease seal part numbers you provided. I was not able to find a seal cross reference for these so to select replacements your best bet is to measure your spindle diameters and hub bores to get the required inner and outer seal diameters. Use a precision digital caliper like # PTW80157. Then use the linked page and simply click on the filters for your inner and outer seal diameters to see the options in that size. You can also click on your preference for single- or...

  • Adding Electric Brakes To ShoreLandr Boat Trailer
  • I did some research on your ShoreLandr trailer and found it has a weight capacity of just under 3,000-lbs. To add electric brakes to your trailer I recommend part # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left side of the trailer. These assemblies have a 4-bolt brake mounting flange pattern. For a hub and drum I recommend part # AKHD-550-35-K. This hub and drum assembly includes Inner bearing (L68149) and race, outer bearing (L44649) and race, grease seal,...

  • Using Brake Adjustment Tool on Drop Axle
  • The # W80630 brake adjustment tool we offer is two sided. One side has a 90 degree bend in it that makes accessing the brake adjuster on a drop spindle much easier. The # W80630 tool will work just fine for you.

  • Parts Needed To Replace Hub Assembly And/Or Axle For 1987 Mastercraft Prostar Boat Trailer
  • Based on the information you sent, you will need to find the size of your bearings, weight capacity of your trailer and axle, and your bolt pattern. You can determine your bearings size by either finding the stamped part number on them or by measuring them. To measure them, use a digital caliper like Item # PTW80157 to measure the spindle at the bearing seats. Measure both the inner and outer bearing seats on the spindle as well as the spring seat to get the most accurate measurement...

  • What Does the Brake Spoon # W80630 Do
  • The brake spoon part # W80630 that you referenced is designed to adjust the tightness of brake assemblies so that they operate as they should. As long as you have drum brakes on the axle you are referring to this product should work well for you. Check out the video (see link). Beginning at the 4:23 mark, our installer shows how to adjust your trailer brakes.

  • Can You Find Bearing Sizes Needed Based On Vin Number?
  • Unfortunately most manufacturers of trailers like your EZ Load do not keep the complete list of parts based on VIN. The best way for us to ensure we get you the correct bearings are to pull your hubs and look at the bearing numbers printed on the face of the bearing. The next best way is to have you measure your spindle where the bearings sit with a digital caliper like # PTW80157 and take some pictures for us. The sizes are very precise, so that is the best way for us to help you get...

  • Initial Adjustment Of Electric Self-Adjusting Brakes On Trailer
  • We find that at times the self-adjusting brakes need to be manually adjusted the first time when they are installed. You can do this by going to a parking lot with the trailer attached. Then drive the trailer in an empty parking lot and apply the brake a number of times to get the proper adjustment. To initially adjust the brakes, you will need to raise the trailer and secure it on adequate capacity jack stands. Check that the wheel and drum rotate freely. Do not lift or support trailer...

  • Locating Replacement Bearings for Yacht Club Utility Trailer
  • The easiest and most accurate way to determine which bearings are used on your trailer axle is to take the hub off and check for the numbers that should be stamped into the bearings themselves. If you cannot locate the numbers, you can also measure the trailer spindle at various locations where the bearings sit. I have attached an image that shows where these measurements should be taken. You will want to use a digital caliper like # PTW80157, as the measurements will need to be exact....

  • How to Measure Hub Bore to Find Correct Size Bearing Buddy Bearing Protector
  • To find the correct Bearing Buddy grease cap for your Rockwood camper trailer you can measure either the hub's bore (please see linked photo), where the grease cap installs, or you can measure the existing grease cap's outer diameter. The hub is a more reliable place to measure since a grease cap can be deformed when it is pulled from the hub. This measurement needs to be very precise - to three one-thousandths of an inch, such as 1.234-inches as an example. We offer a cost-effective...

  • Replacement Hubs for Zieman 2 Jetski Trailer
  • To replace the hubs with the correct fit, you will need to pull one of your hubs. Then you can look at the inner and outer bearing which should have a number printed on them and also there is a number printed on the seal on the back of the hub. If you let me know those numbers, I can help you from there. If you can't find the numbers printed on the bearing faces or if they are just not legible, you can measure the spindles with a digital caliper like # PTW80157 in the bearing and...

  • How To Measure A Trailer Spindle To Find Replacement Hubs And Bearings
  • To make sure you find the right replacement hubs you can do a couple of things. First check out the bearing and see if you can find the numbers for the bearings either etched or stamped on the side of the bearing. If you can not find the numbers you will need to measure the spindle. I have attached a drawing that shows where you need to measure the spindle to find the right replacements. The drawing also shows where to measure for a seal as well. You will also need to measure the inside...

  • How to Determine Which Replacement Hubs Will Fit Spindle
  • There are a few different ways to make sure that you are getting the correct hub to match your spindle like the wheel bolt pattern, bearings, and weight capacity. You can either use a Digital Caliper # PTW80157 to measure the different sections of your spindle (see attached picture), or you can simply remove your current hub and locate the bearing, race, and seal numbers (on same attached picture). Once you know what the measurements or numbers are you can either filter through our...

  • Recommended Jack Stands for Long Term Storage of Trailer
  • Your Torsion axle simply has integrated suspension into the axle. It is no different than having a trailer with constant weight on it like a travel trailer to have your 1500 lb UTV stored on it. Your axle is rated at 3500 lbs so it won't be an issue. If you are storing it for long periods of time, it would be better to get the weight off your axle and tires so you don't get flat spots on your tires and also relieve your suspension. This will also help protect from dry rot. If you...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Electric Brakes on New R-Pod Trailer
  • It's certainly possible to replace the electric brakes on your newly purchased R-Pod trailer, but it's hard for me to know if this will resolve your issue, as it's still possible (and more likely) that there is something else going on that is causing the weak braking. You did mention checking the wiring and brake controller, along with the brake assemblies themselves for any grease or oil, but it sounds like they might not have been adjusted. When weak braking occurs, more times than...

  • How To Determine Replacement Hubs And Brakes For Boat Trailer
  • Unfortunately, just the outer bearing is not quite enough to figure out what you need for replacement hubs and bearings. For a trailer with that much weight it sounds like you have a tandem trailer. I recommend replacing the bearings and seals on all of the wheels at the same time, even if you are only replacing the brakes on one axle. If you remove the inner and outer bearing and can find the numbers, that will really help. Or you can use digital calipers like part # PTW80157 and take...

Those 3 numbers will help determine the bearing and seal replacements needed. If you can't determine the numbers printed on the bearings due to bearing failure, you can use the 4" Carbon Fiber Digital Caliper # PTW80157 to measure your trailer...
