BrenderUp Trailers

Hi,
i've got a question concerning BrenderUp (www.brenderup.com) trailers.

I'd like to know if it is possible to lengthen a particular model by adding a longer towing arm ? The model i'm interesting in is the 8115 BOATTRAILER W/ROLLERS 600KG. If nobody knows the answer could someone please give me a number for a supplier in the dorset area please?

Thanks

Are you aware they have sealed bearings and electrics cables that run through the chassis. We have one in the club and I am not looking forward to changing the bearings

Thanks for the info. I've mailed Trailer Bloke.

If the cables run through the chassis then how do I put it in the water? I'm a bit confused.

Good question, there is a second connector at the rear of the trailer which disconnects so you can remove the trailer board. However this connector is an ordinary car type and its going to get wet. Also the trailer side lights are hard wired into the chassis.

The trailer does tow really well and the galvanising is good quality as is the rest of the trailer. Its just the sealed bearings and wiring thats a bit naff.

I would imagine that your'd have to get a professional to change the sealed bearings wouldn't you? I would have thought that its a good point.

It does sound worrying putting the wiring into the wet salty stuff though. I can't beleive that would last long.

Changing the bearings is easy use the old ones to gently drift the new ones in.

I don't like wires running trough trailer chassis, fill the plug up grease (waterproof) is your best answer. This practice of running cables is quite common sur la continent.
