Are There Torque Specs for Assembling the CE Smith Boat Trailer


Do you or CE Smith have any recommendations with respect to fastener torques, especially for the fasteners that do not span a frame rail section? The only torque specification pertains to the lug nuts.


Expert Reply:

I do have some advice for you but CE Smith does not provide any torque values for the CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810 save for the lug nuts as you mentioned. The torque sequence as laid out in the attached instructions will be far more important than a specific value. That said, most of the hardware included with the trailer consists of nyloc nuts. The correct process to tighten a nyloc nut will be to turn the bolt until you will see the end of it come through the nut. I really wish I could provide an exact value but it does not need to be that precise.
