Bill Z, the height of the garage is the regular standard height. Somthing like 6"11 or 7 feet. Tower height folded down on a level surface is 6'10.5. I should have had an inch or so but the angle going in was too much.
I thought raising the height of the hitch would help a lot as well Face planter. The weird thing was it didn't. We have the F350 so the hitch is really high already, the first couple of dings in the molding was from a lower hitch I tried to use. It probably varied the height about 6 inches or so from the hitch and the tower would pretty much hit in the same spot each time.
Saying that I'm not very mechanical is kind of an understatement
so any suggestions of what to do would be great.
What I was thinking was to just take an 8 foot section and cut about an inch out of the molding. The garage won't seal but that doesn't matter to me during the summer. In the winter I don't keep the boat in there so I could just tack up a board in there with the weather stripping to seal for the winter? Does that make sense? Anyone think of anything better?
