Spot the deliberate mistake...

This afternoon's job made me smile. Went to sort a chap's boat trailer that he'd not long had serviced, by a well known, independent trailer company.

Trouble was, he couldn't reverse it at all. He gave them a call, but they were unhelpful, as they don't offer a mobile service to come and remedy the issue.

Spot the deliberate mistake...

On mine the expander is at the bottom of the wheel (6 O'Clock) Also should the reverse (spring loaded shoe) by facing towards the rear of the trailer.

if it is copperslip should it be used at all in a part exposed to salt water...dissimilar metals and all that. In theory we shouldn't be greasing back plates and bits at all should we? In practise however.......

auto reverse shoe upside down?

We are all right. But just to throw us. The axles were installed upside down That in it self isn't a problem if the leading shoe was on the proper side. It should overrun but the spring locks it up
