    As has been said, the stock jack does not go low enough. We use separate hydraulic jack to lower the tongue on to a piano dolly that is only about 3 inches off the ground, flip the mirror, disconnect garage door from opener and push it up higher by jamming in a block of wood. Push her in and mirror just barely grazes rubber seal- I think we get it in under 83 inches- I thought it was 78 inches but not sure.

    I attached some photos here. I think the garage is a normal height maybe 7 feet. I tried taking the trailer off the hitch and wheelin in by hand, but it still is not that close. The taking the door down manually is a good idea that might work. I really don't want to take air out of tires, because re-inflating every time will be a pain without a compressor. The trailer is the standard one that comes with the boat I believe.

    But how low was the tongue? You need a drop hitch or a new jack..

    The tongue was as low as the jack would take it. I can try taking it off that jack wheel and try wheeling it in by hand even lower. Btw did my pictures go through? The red circled part is the highest point on the trailer that won't go in. 201406019514180695LLS cirlced.jpg

    Part of the issue is the board racks. You should slide them forward. I'll look and see if I have a picture of my old boat.

    buy a new house. gets you a garage and the other half a new bathroom/kitchen.

    problem solved on many levels


    I had a boat that was pushing the limits and a lower ball and hitch did the trick. it's a pita to unhitch/drop/rehitch and put away but if you are real close, should get you the clearance you need.

    Is your trailer a single, or double axle? Single will sit higher. I was able to get my 08 LSV in the 7' garage by using the methods above, but I don't think it would have worked with a single axle with larger diameter wheels . My double had 14" wheels. I think the singles are 15 or 16" wheels.
