    Same here. But I've learned how to do it myself.

    While in the boat, facing the side hook my front arm around the tower by tower speakers and lift quickly by leaning back . When the tower gets up I shake the tower to get it passed the area that I used to push in. As it gets passed that I start the knob to secure it. On the other side I just pull down quickly and start that knob.

    It is much harder than having my son help but it is doable. On many days I get the boat ready before he gets home from school so we can leave right as he gets home.

    2013 LSV does the same thing. Pull the back of the base toward you a little (from inside the boat) while turning the knob and it will catch.

    You have to pull pretty hard.

    I havI have a 2013 LSV. On my fourth time out brought the boat home to put in the garage and couldn't get the bolt to reverse out of the tower my 10 year had no issue earlier in the day screwing it in so I’m sure it did get stripped. Called the dealer asked what do he said just put a racket on it and I said won’t that destroy the knob he’s like sure we will send you a new one right away. Guess what snapped the bolt off inside the rack. Guess how much fun it is to extract a bolt from that tower rack not very easy worst engineering design I’ve ever seen. After an hour with an easyout and tap got the bolt parts out. So now I’m 4 days out and my dealer hasn’t sent the new part yet called him 3 times and I just wasted a day off that I couldn’t go boating. Really digging my new LSV and the awesome dealer I have wish I would have bought that MasterCraft.e a 2013 LSV on my 4 time out brought the boat home to put in the garage and couldn't get the bolt to reverse out of the boat my 10 year had no issue earlier in the day screwing it in.

    Got the same issue - figured if I tighten drivers side first then tighten the other side it works - many 4 letter words have been uttered the first time I tried to put the tower up! This shouldn't be this way on a brand new boat...
