see my post 24-05-05 #10/ "Rogue Wave-you plonker"

If you really mean what you said- I would suggest you arrange to see a
shrink. Afterall ,it takes one purveyor of garbage to recognise another.

jonathan -- I have added you to my buddy list.
What? This thread of nearly two months ago? Don't see any mention of the words deserted..perhaps my psychological profile is masking those words from me.

But the trailer was just as stable on three wheels as 4.
..and as you seem wish to continue this debate...what happened to...?

If you think slinging childish comments about "shrinks" does anything other than make you look a bigger fool than you are appearing already, then you are very much mistaken. At least use some wit, humour or even maturity in you attempts at ridicule. For your information I have, on more than one occasion seen a psychiatrist. He says that I’m perfectly well balanced ..I have a chip on both shoulders…

RIBase
Trailers

So peeps,

Back to trailers.

I have an indespension roller coaster for my 6.5m Scorpion and it has been good for the 9 or so months I've owned it.
Had a roller coaster on my searider and never had any problems.

Might have gone for an RM trailer for the Scorpion as that is what they supply but delivery was too long - 5 weeks vs. stock for the Indespension.
I have an indespension dealer very close to me so that swayed the decision a bit for me.

If you go for an Indespension (or others perhaps) fit bearing savers. These ensure that the bearings remain packed with grease and do not fill with water. In the 4 years I had the trailer for the Avon they received no maintainance and suffered no problems. This was probably for 20 launches per year.
So all this talk of putting bearings in the wrong way, or not, should be irrelevent!

I hope that this helps

You're quite right, Duncan. Please accept my apologies, one and all, for the pettiness that I have allowed to develop on this thread.
I have a Bramber single axle trailer under my Humber 7.0 metre that tows, manoeuvres and launches beautifully behind a suitable tow vehicle. The downside is that it has Alko bearings which are not the best. I have just replaced them as they can’t be “maintained”.
