    Default Trailer?

    There was a thread started on trailers that had some info. that I need! I have looked for it and you know! It was giving weight and ratios for the tongue weight on boat trailers and axle placement! Does anyone know what to go by to determine tongue weight? Thanks WT

    other than weighting the front of the boat trailer, and the rear of the boat trailer, adding the two together to find the total, finding the ratio from front to back then finding the center of gravity for the trailer deciding the desired tong weight 50-150 (at least thats what i like for a mine 80 lbs) think of a leaver and move the fulcrum back to get the desired weight, now functionality you either fallow the above and draw it out to help you visualize whats going out or build a support frame out of wood creating a fulcrum point and physically measure the tong weight. if your asking what the proper tung weight ratio is im sorry i wasted your time
