    Default 2012 boatmate trailer water issue

    Looks like I have water in the second to last cross member in the trailer right below the lights. Not the rear member, the v cross member right behind the axle.

    i saw some rust on the trailer around the light and thought it was strange , so I tried to clean it up and realized when I moved the light slightly rusty water would come out. So I pulled the light with the rubber gasket and about a half gallon of rusty water came out. It's been in my back field for a week now.

    Not sure how it got trapped in there, when I examined the wires , the protectective coating is stripped on one side from being pulled through the trailer. Not good if sitting in water for long periods of time.

    any thoughtson how this should drain or not fill up.

    Default 2012 boatmate trailer water issue

    I had a similar problem with mine when I redid my trailer. I was having water come in through the lights and water was sitting on the top of the rail in that bowl area. I filled my part in with a flat piece of steel to keep that from rusting and just drilled a drain hole in the very bottom.

    Call me crazy but I believe all my cross bars have a hole drilled at the lowest point of the arch for drainage.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    That would make sense, guess mine could have been the "Friday" build.

    No hole, boatmate said they would warranty the work, drill new hole, etc and replace the frayed wires in the fall when I bring it back to the dealer.

    Decent resolution, but stinks regardless.

    I noticed on a '13 trailer there are holes drilled in the lower arch of the axles
