Re: Wiring Mast Lights

I used the Sea Dog Polarized Electrical Connector P/N 426234-1. Really like it and it was a perfect fit in the existing deck penetration.

Re: Not so beautiful photos

Shrink wrap tape is plastic (water proof) and uber strong. I think I could have kept going on the canal trip and not worried about water intrusion... but better safe and not add to the damage. It's the tape that is used when boats are shrink wrapped for the winter I'm told. I was in North Tonawanda ...

Your trailer is either overloaded or your suspension is suspect. I had the same symptom several years ago. Switched to radial tires (single axle)...
