Ouch! Glad your ok

At work we occasionally do a 2k mile round trip to poland to collect boats

We always service the trailer before changing the bearings (it sits un used for months before the trip) and carry spare bearings just in case

For an un known trailer id advise renting a flatbed trailer for a long journey

Massive thanks to Hadd and Kerny for helping me to repair my trailer. Andy spent a couple of Saturdays removing the old axle and then refitting the new axle and I can't thank him enough. :-)

Luckily the place that Andy recommended for the new axle was just 100 yards down the road from me, and coincidentally they had produced the old axle for Admiral Trailers. They pulled out the old drawings, confirmed that it was suitable for 750kg and made me a new one within a week for 135.00. I also bought 3 new wheels and tyres off them for 35.00.

Once again, thank you very much. :-)

Glad you got sorted, that's what good forums are about.

Will this mean we will see you at Anglesey on the March 22nd for the rib cruise, would love to see the humber again, kids would love it too.

Now you can start to enjoy the boat and rid your mind of the smokey wheel

Yeah, I wished I had done that after one of thre tyres exploded the day I picked Wildheart up.... On a dark country A road with no layby for what seemed like forever.... and that having looked before I left they appeared to be fine. That trailer is now in use as someone's launch trolley.....

Yep, you don't need a big "grab bag" to get out of jail. Don't forget a bearing puller - they might not come off as easily as they went on! Mine also contains suitable spanners / pliers etc for the brake fittings.

Also these days most car jacks are designed to fit into a suitable location feature on the sill. Net result is much precarious balancing when it's under a trailer. A dedicated scissors jack (can screw a block of wood to the top to protect the galanising) is another very handy addition to the kit!

We're hoping to, just not sure if we're free that weekend yet. Fingers crossed. :-)
