I back the trailer in deep enough for the boat to start floating, unhook the winch, walk the boat to the end of the ramp dock (cringing as the prop passes over the gravel pile). The ramp we mostly...

Do you have brakes on that axle? If so, that's where the heat could be coming from.

"Glad that BoatMate got you hooked up!! Is that a boatmate part or a part that they get from another manufacturer "

Boatmate is sending me a new (unpainted) tongue free of charge. They did offer to paint it for a nominal fee but the lead time was too long so I'll get it painted here locally. Thanks Boatmate!

It's apparent that most here have no idea of the magnitude of a solar setup that would be required to recharge a battery system of this size. Especially if you want it done in a matter of hours.
