    Lowering trailer jack

    Has anyone had a trailer jack apart to know if there is something in there that can be modded to allow it to be lowered more? Awhile ago I put a larger wheel on the jack so I could move the boat around better, thanks to the forum for that one it works great. My problem is now it will not lower enough to secure to the ball. I have to use a floor jack to lower it or flip my hitch around which sets off the backup sensors. If there is a way to get inside to allow it to be lowered by about 2" that would be great or it is heading under the cutoff wheel and welder!

    RF 16 owners - I need a measurement - please

    I have the wrong boat and year you are asking for, 2005 21', but just had to check for feces and chuckles. About 16 3/4" on mine. With the boat having a jackplate,under a cover, and backed up to a fence it was difficult to get an exact reading. I know it was not the boat you were asking about but the back end is about the same as the 16'.

    Towing Question

    It is the little * by the max tow rating that get you. You have to have weight distribution hitch, brakes, drive motors on trailer, and a tractor pulling the tow vehicle to get the numbers they get.

    Hewes Redfisher Fuel tanks

    I have had two Hewes both with aluminium tanks, 1997 and 2005. I could be wrong but i think the tanks got moved up when the deck layout changed.

    Towing Question

    I thought you can get a XT6 in AWD? I have a buddy at work that has an older one with AWD although he does not tow with it.

    21RF Deck Drain

    Is the flapper valve under the boat working? I know my drain is slightly different but when the valve under the boat starts going bad water will come up through the deck drain.

    I looked last night and did not find them. Capt.Troy's picture is the outcome I did not want so that is the reason I did not use them and went with the solid ss.

    The first set of lugs looks like they are ss caps covering the lugs while the other are all ss and one piece. I have a bunch of the ones you posted somewhere in my garage you can have if I can find them, brand new never put on.☺️

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Looking sharp! I'm glad you can go fast enough to get a good breeze going or you might fall asleep in those seats. They look comfy!

    NOCO Gen4 Install

    The NOCO Genius On-Board Battery Charger # 329-GEN4 does not have the extensions like the NOCO Accessories X-Connect Extension Cable - 10' Long # 329-GC004. If you were to extend the wires from the manufacturer, you would need to so without altering the ring terminals or you would void the manufacturer warranty. The NOCO DC leads can be extended up to 10 additional feet after the inline fuse but not before it. NOCO does not recommend any modifications between the inline fuse and the charger itself. The electrical connections to either the AC input or the DC output of the charger are modified without the express written consent of NOCO. I could not find NOCO's specific instructions on how they want it done, but yes bolt another set of ring terminals on and heat shrink them up good.

    NOCO Gen4 Install

    Do not extend the lines by simply cutting and adding a longer length, it will void you warranty and you might need it. The warranty will be void if anything has changed on the charger even if you cut and put new ring terminals on. Their way to extend the leads is basically add another ring terminal and bolt them together if I remember correctly. They might have how to do it on there web site if not give them a call.

    8 vs 10ft powerpole on hewes redfisher 18

    I think HoneyB is right, I forget the exact difference. I went through the same thing when trying to decide which size to go with. I simply taped a 2x4 on to the Power Pole I already had on the boat to see how it would look. Ended up with the 10 footer.

    2016 Pathfinder 23 HPS *** SOLD ***

    Beautiful boat. Having one of Josh's old boats I can say he keeps his things in top shape and I'm sure this beauty is no different.

    2300 Hps coming soon!

    It will be interesting to see those pictures. I sometimes run a 23 that has been worked some, basically cup for more grip. Sounds like Josh is adding more rake to the prop closer to the hub? Does the work he did still allow the prop to spin up on the holeshot?
