    It is always about dropping or pulling the left one. Wait I should stop now before this gets really bad.

    Jerry got back to me on when it fails it really fails and how to adjust it. I guess I will try this tonight and see if I drop a trailer on myself or how much more of a problem I create.

    Ok I went out and took some more photos since I now know what I am looking at. First pic is of the side with clearance. it is sitting at about 5* with a loaded trailer. Second photo is of the side without clearance. it is sitting at 28*. My issue right now is if I pull it off and there is damage to the splines since it has moved this much. Should this be an issue?

    It's easy to pull off...I would doubt there's damage to the splines unless the bolt didn't get torqued correctly at the factory. My guess is either the torsion internals settled, or they installed the hub at the wrong angle to begin with. Not harm in pulling it to see what you got. 150lbs torque based on my post above with the UFP service bulletin.

    Same thing just happened to me on the 4th, but the tire on mine went all the way to the fender leaving a trail of smoke and melted rubber. I've been trying to get in touch with Boatmate but they're closed til Monday. Anyone have any ideas on the repair cost?
