    Reminder to check the little things

    Got to looking at the trailer winch and noticed the catch. The nylon nut is stripped and I couldn't tighten or loosen the nut. Had to torch the nut and melt the nylon to get it off. Going to put a regular nut with a nylon nut behind it back on. With alot of people getting to tow there skis varying distances may need to think about adding safety cables. I know I am.

    Trust me I thought of Geo the instant I found this. I believe Geo's was accidental rather than an equipment failure.

    What nut are you referring to? I see the alignment issue but not the nut associated with it.
    I couldn't agree more with the concept of this thread, little things mean a lot

    Its the nut that holds the Ratchet piece on. In the first pic half the nut is visible at the bottom below the hole that retains the spring.

    My old ski & trailer have the nose pin connection to the trailer. Not much to keep an eye on.
