General

FLOE uses # 12 TPI 1 3/4” Sq Drive screws to secure the 5/8” treated plywood.  There are 49 screws on a 10’ trailer.  Instructions for re-decking a trailer are listed on FLOE’s website under manuals/instructions.  There are 5 – AS616SF 3/16 x 1” rivets on the back channel.
Additional ramp loops can be added to a trailer by a certified aluminum welder.
Value will vary depending on the age and shape of the trailer. Check with Craig’s List and other shopping venues to see what they are selling for in your area.
The ramp is designed to handle most snowmobiles and small ATVs. 2016 model ramps have been reinforced and will handle larger ATVs and snowmobiles.
Use a screwdriver or other suitable object to clear it.
FLOE’s ramp/shields are custom engineered for FLOE 100” wide trailers. The trailer V front has a 26.6 degree angle which is different than most brands of trailers. If the trailer has a 26.6 degree V, it may fit.
This ramp holds equipment up to a 1500 lb. capacity. If you add the bi-fold ramp, it does not add more capacity.
Ensure the tilt bolt nut holding the tongue on the trailer torqued to 80 foot pounds. If this is loose, it may cause the trailer from staying up.
The VIN is located on the axle beam near the front on the driver’s side.
Use a mild detergent and water using a soft cloth. Be careful with high pressure washers as you may damage the decals on the side of the trailer.

Lighting

You may have corrosion on the wire connections on the trailer or tow vehicle. Check all connections and clean or apply electrical grease to prevent future corrosion. You may also have improper ground to tow vehicle. Also check that the ends aren’t worn and not fitting together properly.
You may have the wrong amperage fuse or a wire may be cut or bare and is shorting out. See trouble shooting section in owner’s manual.

Tires

FLOE’s tire supplier may change throughout the years. The brand name is always listed on the side of the tire as well as the size. Refer to the trailer spec chart in the owner’s manual or FLOE’s website to determine standard tires by trailer size.
Trailer may need spacer blocks to raise trailer up higher and provide proper clearance for tires. This can happen when 13” tires are put on 10’ trailers.
Yes, if you maintain a minimum of 3 inches of clearance between your tire and the trailer frame or bed. There is 3” of travel in the torsion suspension so you will need this much clearance. Generally you can upgrade tires one size without having to add spacer blocks but always check for clearance.
You may have unequal side-to-side loading, the axle might not be aligned, tires may not be inflated to proper PSI or the wheel bearings may not be properly tightened and oiled/greased. You could also possibly have a bent spindle or trailing arm which will need to be replaced. See trouble shooting section in owner’s manual.
½-20 lug nuts on standard Versa Max Trailers. Mag tires use acorn 60 degree cone lug nuts.
Tire manufacturer’s state that SP (Specialty Trailer Tires) does not need to be balanced. All FLOE trailers have SP tires.

Axles / Hubs

If you have a top or front access hole, simply pull off the rubber cap to access the fill hole. The cap is threaded. Older Turbo Lube hubs have a set screw in the top of cap. Use an Allen Wrench to remove.
FLOE trailers made from 2004 to current have 10” brakes. Trailers prior to 2004 had 7” brakes.
Use a high-quality high-temperature lithium complex wheel bearing grease such as Exxon Ronex MP or an equivalent. Never use grease heavier than 265 A.S.T.M. penetration (No. 2 grade).
FLOE no longer carries these slide mounts. You would need to purchase the weld-on versions on current trailers along with the axle mounting kit and have the new mounts welded to your trailer by a certified aluminum welder.

Enclosures

FLOE can re-skin your enclosure for you. Ask dealers for pricing. If enclosure has severe damage, it may be less expensive to purchase a new enclosure than repair.
FLOE enclosures only fit on FLOE trailers. The enclosure attaches to the trailer side panel. Other enclosures may fit on FLOE trailers but FLOE doesn’t have information on other brands. Sno Cap Vinyl enclosures manufactured in Cokato MN will fit on FLOE trailers.
54” high.

Specifications of Trailers

This will depend on the model and accessories. 8’ tilt trailers are 12’, 10’ tilts 14’, 12’ tilts 16’, 12’ ramps 18’, 14’ ramp 20’, 16’ ramp 22’, 22’ ramp 28’, 28’ ramp 34’. All Terrain pro trailers are 54” wide and all other FLOE flatbed trailers are 102” wide. See spec chart in owner’s manual for weights of each size of trailer. Accessories add to the weight of the trailer. All specs are available in FLOE’s brochure, website and owner’s manuals.
Refer to the spec chart listed in owner’s manuals, brochures and on FLOE’s website. Specs will change if not using a standard axle and/or tires. Also, an enclosure and other accessories reduce the cargo capacity on a trailer.
Most 14’ and longer trailers will be level at 20 – 21”. It is important the trailer is level to the ground when towing. Actual heights may vary depending on the vehicle and the type of hitch.
No. You cannot increase the load weight on the 10’ trailer by upgrading the axle & upgrading the tires. The specifications for the tongue & chain on a 10’ trailer do not meet the requirements that of a 12’ & up trailer.
