    It does from the limited sample here but you can be sure there have been random failures in less time and in more time than you are seeing here.

    Default Trailer riding low

    I believe if I remember correctly the supplier of the torsion axles had a bad batch for a few years. 06-08?
    And 5 years has been pretty common. My '06 was built in April '06 and broke in sept '11.

    Jerry at boatmate was very helpful in getting parts, but being as I was second owner and was just over 5 years they couldn't push warranty.

    Default Trailer riding low

    Y'all are scaring me! So far my 08 has been trouble free! I did talk to someone with boatmate awhile back and he insured me the problem had been resolved when the 08 trailers came out. From reading the forum it sounds like they were blowing smoke up my rear

    I'm with you, David. My 08 has been completely trouble free to date. I now have my fingers crossed. I tow long distances every trip so I'm really not wanting to deal with this in the middle of nowhere, if it happens...

    Mine is an 08, ordered it in January and needed one changed in 2010. I custom ordered my trailer so I know its not a 07 leftover. However the axels could have been built in 07.

    I hate to scare people but guess that is what we are doing right now. I went back over the years of photos and noticed a small change in mine each year. Could be the reason I did not notice it until just recently.

    I think everyone that has been posting has a single axle trailer. So that might make you feel a little better if you have a dual. Also my Axle number is A449138. Could help to see if yours is in the same range as mine so you know if it might have been the same batch.

    Check the year on the trailers. While my Outback is an '08, the trailer is listed as an '07. Also I spoke with the mechanic at the local marina. He's told me the problem starts if you try and back the trailer's without the electrical hooked up. There is a safety mechanism to prevent the trailers from rolling. If you try to back the trailer without it plugged in, the brakes lock and the rubber block in the axle breaks, no longer holding everything in place. So just make sure you plug everything in, even for just a short move.

    This has happened on double axle trailers as well.

    I believe that was the death of mine as I backed mine into garage without wires plugged I think right before when mine failed

    Well, I've only tried to do it with the lawnmower and it wouldn't move with the brakes locked so I'm not worried . . . yet.
