Default Friction Tape

I applied the friction tape on the tongue of my trailer. I'm still a Wallenda out there, and always come away with one wet shoe. I can see a set of these in my future.

I can honestly say I would do without a locator before I would ever be without steps again. Ease and safety of use make them a no brainer for me. I would be willing to bet nobody has ever returned a set because they didn't like them.

LOL...they are great! I thought maybe the powder coating would chip off the step pads, but it's holding up beautifully.

Unrelated Q here....what is that awesome looking jack you have on there, looks like it makes moving your boat around easier?

Shad

Default Trailer Valet

It does a great job . Jus turn the crank and the boat moves . Steer it with the steering handle . Want to stop let go of the steering handle and and the brakes come on . Works on gravel as well as hard surfaces .

With the ezsteps & a swing tongue, it appears you would not be able to swing the tongue all the way over? My boat is very tight in the garage - have about 3" of play. If I can't swing my tongue at least 90Deg, the boat won't fit. Thoughts?

Not sure what you mean. The boats in this post have swing tongues.

Lake Wisconsin , You are right about the EZEE Steps and the tongue swinging to that side . I also had the regular dolly jack on that side . I removed the dolly not needing it anymore . And switched the pin in the tonuge hinge to the other side so the tongue now swings away from the steps and folds clear back against the
Trailer Valet giving much more then a 90 deg. swing to my tongue . In addition it now puts the dolly on the drivers side so I don't have to step over the tongue to get to the dolly when hooking up and unhooking From the truck . Oh by the way the dolly makes hooking up really easy . Just get some what close a couple of feet or so to the coupler on the trailer. And then go back and lift the steering handle on the Trailer Valet give the crank a crank or what ever it takes to get right over the ball on the hitch . And let go of the steering handle setting the brake and then use the up down crank on the top to lower the tongue and your hooked up .
No more backing up 3 times and pulling ahead 2 times tryin to get hooked up by myself . I bring the boat to the truck and not the other way around . Its easy cause I'm right where I can see what's happening . I don't know about your trailer setup but changing the swing sides on mine took less then 30 mins. by myself . And the trailer is an 2004 and it had been assembled the other way for quite a few years. If I can most anyone can. I'm not much of a wrench and don't want to be at this point in my life . Anymore questions and I'm only to happy to give you all the info I've got . I am really liking the stuff I have added to the trailer .It makes doing everything by myself a lot easier then it was .
Tight lines,
Rick

Had an excellent experience with EZEE Steps! My opinion every boat out there should have a set. Living in ND presents some challenges launching a boat as the dock availability can be spotty at best. These things make launching/loading much safer and simpler. Mark is great to work with, walked my through the measuring process and steps were spot on. Awesome product, and service. Highly recommend.
