Reliable Boat Trailer Repair and Maintenance Service
Here are the major reasons trailers break down: ⚠️
- Flat Tires
- Wheel Bearing Failures
- Axle Problems
- Suspension Problems
- Tongue/Coupling Trouble
Boat Trailer Tires
Boat trailers have problems primarily due to the underinflation of the tires. Check your trailer tires before and after use.
The fact that the tire won’t stay like a car tire when under inflated compounds this problem. You have to check your tire pressure on a regular basis with a tire gauge to be sure it’s in good condition.
Tires should also be replaced within 3-5 years of use, even if they appear to be in good condition.
Wheel Bearing Maintenance
Because boat trailer wheels are often immersed in corrosive salt water, their maintenance is crucial. Use a spring-loaded hub to lubricate the wheel bearings constantly. Even if your trailer only comes into contact with fresh water, you still need this lubricant to extend the wheel’s lifespan.
Those trailers that don’t get immersed in water are also subject to corrosion and need lubrication.
Axle, Suspension, and Tongue
Boat trailer maintenance can be more than visual corrosion, as is evident in cases where there is no corrosion, but the axle or suspension still have problems. Mechanical damage to these structural parts on your trailer need to be assessed periodically over time.
Avoid neglecting getting repairs done to your axles, suspension and tongue. This can prevent unnecessary damage taking place to your boat and vehicle.
