  1. The underwater lights most likely are not wired. Do you have a assc. switch on the dash? Mine was hot, so all I had to do was run the hot to that and ground the lights to the nearest ground buse. . .
  2. Check the dry weight of both then check the capacity of the trailer. .
  3. Thats not a problem, just screw them in. It will conform the the hull but not interfere with the movement of the tabs. The manufacturers know that no hull is flat. .
  4. NIce.... .
  5. Mine boat weighs in at 8400# and I do tow it with a 2015 Yukon XL with the tow package. This thing tows better that my old 2006 GMC 1500 with a 3.73 rear-end. We go to the Ozark's every year, the new gearing and 6 speed transmission pulls it like a dream over the hills in MO. The new load leveling system makes the rear a little squirrelly when you have to make a quick move while driving with the boat. My hope is that when GM redesigns the platform it upgrades the towing capacity and rear suspension. I really like it for my everyday driver. .
  6. The trailer comes with it's own warranty. Chaparral did not make the trailer. Dealer should be able to help you out. .
  7. Now thats better than reading 8 pages of hydraulics and physics.....Then trying to understand what you've just read. .
  8. On mine I can get access to the back of the helm from the storage compartment. I had 2 carpeted panels to unscrew. You just need to be = to or > 5'8' 190# to get in there. .
  9. Thats right around 50-60 hrs a year, thats about average. If its been maintained right its good to go. But ask the owner; When was the impeller changed and drive pulled? If he hasn't done either in the last 2-3 years. That would be 2 things I would do when you winterize it the fall. .
  10. I change the drive lube, engine oil and filter ever fall. Then winterize it. Every three years (300 Hours recommended) I do the impeller and have the shop pull the drive to check the alinement. Four the last 6-7 years I've only put about 20 hours on, it so I'm going to do the impeller, drive pull, fuel filter and spark plugs every 4 years. The impeller has looked fine the last 2 times I've changed it. . .
  11. Its like the first scratch, once you get one it aint so bad.... .
  12. Photobucket gotcha.....Just load your picturesinto the gallery. Then repost. .
