Question about torsion bar axles in salt water... I have a Century 2600WA on a tandem axle aluminum trailer. Trailer is in salt water weekly for past 4 years. Thoroughly flush boat, trailer and brakes after each use. Galvanized torsion bar axles are obviously rusting from the inside. I assume this is a significant safety issue. How serious is this? Options? Future maintainance tips? Thanks
I am looking to purchase a new trailer for my FourWinns 240 Horizon. The trailer that came with the boat new has been nothing but problems since day one. I would like to know if you recommend leaf springs or torsion? Most all the trailers I have looked at only use 14" tires on this size trailer, which seem rather undersized to me considering the weight of this boat. Also, is there a trailer manufacture that you recommend? I appreciate your help.
