Inflate and deflate are not any problem for me. I have found perfect pump JOBE Heavy Duty and original socket from hand pump fit perfectly for it. It is unfortunately 230V but I have another one mounted on boat BRAVO Digital (this one make me angry, when hot al connections pull out ). But way to Greece are 3 days in total, not idea if my PVC tubes will last such journey. Especially end of tubes will flap or I have to secure them somehow.

And the last reason ... Mine boat inflate looks 10 times better then deflate ...
Thank you guys for all suggestions.

About white reflected tape. It is on boat not trailer. I'm not sure if anyone can have complains. This tape from ebay will last 20 slips in Greece (salt water) ?

Do I need special glue to fix it to trailer ?

>>>>>>

Is AMBER equivalent of ORANGE from this ebay auction ?
Or YELLOW ?

The adhesive backing should work fine on the trailer metal.

As willk says, the tape should be ok for quite a while on the trailer - just to help it give it a degrease with MEK or similar before applying.
Amber/orange are the 'same'.

I did add red reflective tape on the tube cones just for extra visibility for the truckers on the Autostrade After 4 years they could do with replacing as they have cracked a little.
I dont bother deflating the tubes when towing and haven't had any issues - except for some scuffing when the Anek boys directed me to turn inside the ferry too close to the vessels hull when disembarking ,,,, easily cleaned up though
I also made up a 'complaint' rear marker board for the Italian roads - a boss on the rear sits inside the prop hub, a cut out to fit around the cavitation plate and a couple of ties to the outboard saddle keeps it nice and secure.
Cheers

OK, here it is status (sorry for took it so long)

1. I used Acetone today and the "rubber" strike becomes sticky after this (so it is PVC)
2. I have ordered VINYCOL 1520 M2 from France (it will take 2 weeks to have it)
3. After I receive VINYCOL I'm going to remove
-- old tape (what to use to remove old glue ?? )
-- glue from new tape
4. Do I need to use sand paper before glue tape again ? Or just use Acetone and next to glue ?

Another question, advice please. I do miss really anti - slip path on my tubes.
Many eshops from UK have only material for hypalon tubes. Mine are PVC.

Who can advice me e-shop/ebay and good quality dark gray path (4 items 25cmx25cm)

Please find mentioned below picture contains grey rectangles. In these places I do want to have non - slip parts.


And this item inside red circle has been glued 1 y ago. It partially pull out also.
1. How to repair it ?
2. How to glue path on tube ?
--- again some solvent or MEK first ?
--- sand paper ???
--- after implement Vinycol on tube and path do I need to wait some time or glue it immediately ?
