Just a friendly reminder to check you axels on your trailer before taking off on a trip. Was taking my boat to have annual service last week (about 2.5 hr. drive) when halfway there axel broke on my trailer and I was forced to have the boat towed back home so we could get it off the trailer for repair. Lucky not to have boat damage. I caught it very quick. Very critical when you have singel axel to check. If I had the tandem axel trailer I could've tied up the broken one and been able to get to help. Not so lucky with the single axel as I was on the side of the road for almost 4 hours before it could be loaded on the towtruck. Now have to wait at least 2 weeks to get new axel and boat is sitting on a friends lift at the wrong end of the lake.

Thanks for the reminder. At least your boat did not get damaged. Sorry for the bad luck, but gotta keep things in perspective. 2 weeks and just the axle, is better than major damage to the boat. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

What exactly broke? I have a tandem but broke a leaf spring last year. Didn't notice it until I was dewinterizing...Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

that's insane. I have had tires blow out, but never an axel. What would you even look for? Cracks?2006 Mobius LSV

On a good note, got the call yesterday that the trailer is fixed.
