  1. The trolling motor works good for what i use it for I've not used all the functions yet. I have used the anchor function It's good if you want to stop as long as you are going into the wind if not the boat will swing around. The heading lock works but same problem with wind I guess you could pull something to keep the boat straight without going to fast. I have not used the foot pedal, I have only used the remote I like the remote but there I found a week point. I had it around my neck and stood up at the helm it hung on the steering wheel and broke the little piece of plastic where it attaches. I mounted it with the motorguide nylon quick release mount. The way these are made it sticks out in the way of the cover. I release the mount and slide it back to put the cover on. Also with this mount you can completely remove the motot and are left with a about a 4" x 6" x 1" thick piece of plastic on the boat and it mounts with 4 bolts. I not set up to post picture yet but I can take some and send them to you. If you are a bass fisherman this motor may not offer the control to get in around trees and docks that a foot contron does.
  2. I changed the hitch height now it seams to pull better. As for as pulling it does ok on country roads 45 to 55 mph but when I get on the parkway or I65 and try to run 60 To 65 is when it gives me trouble. When I go home Sunday I'll be pulling it with the RV and see how it does, My wife wont pull a trailer nor drive the RV.
  3. I did the build and sent it to around 6 dealers within about 6 hours drive. Then shopped the lowest price and most of the dealers would match that price.
  4. Its adjustable the problem is if I move it and have to turn short to the right the truck will hit the steps. I think the weather is going to get better tomarrow and was planning on going fishing. When I get it hooked up I will back it hard to to right and see how much clearance I have to move it forward. I think that is what it needs.
  5. You can sign up for 10 year warrenty here. https://boat-builder.benningtonmarine.com/product/client/order/standalone/55b519408ff578ea5be33d97
  6. Here is mine while the dealer was putting it together the bunks are even with the back of the pontoons with about two thirds of the noise cone past the front.
  7. I sent the dealer a e-mail but he has not got back with me and its a drive to take it to him. I was hoping it was an adjustment I could make when hooking up the boat I can't see it lower the back of truck much if any. The trailer model # pts22t-13, GVWR 4980 lbs, max carrying 3800 lbs, 22', tires 13" st175(c) 50psi The trailer is for a 22' boat it may be where I had the live well and battery box left out of the front and put the battery's in the rear. The axels are different brands the front one is a Lippert 3500 lbs no brakes, the rear one is Tie down engineering 3500 lbs with brakes.
  8. I'll get the information off the trailer tag tomarrow if it quicks raining.
  9. The dealer ordered the trailer for the boat its a 22sf boat-builder list the specs as. LOA 22' 11.5", pontoon length 21' 4", deck lenght 20' 11", beam 8' 6", hull weight (no engine) 2,196 lbs, The trailer measures about 27' best I can tell with no one hold the tape. The bunks are 18' and the boat is setting with the back of the pontoons flush with the end of the bunks. The bunks run about 14" under the noise cone of the pontoons which don't touch. The motor weights 363 lbs I have the motor, fuel tank, a cranking battery and 2 group 31 deep cycle marine battery's all in the back. From the center of the hitch where it fits on the ball to the steps is 40" and from the center of the ball on the truck to the side of the fender is 38". The steps are 19" wide from the center of the trailer.
  10. I have not been able to look at it today it's rained here all day. I did take a quick look I'm not sure I can adjust the wench stand forward because the steps may hit the truck in a short turn.
  11. The axel's don't move but the wench stand has room for adjustment. I'm on vacation with it now I wont be able to weight it till I get home. I'll check the air pressure and move the wench stand up a little it don't seam to have much tongue weight.
  12. My new Benny came on a 2017 Hustler trailer with tandom axel and brakes on rear axel. The tag on the trailer says its rated for 3800lbs. I have two concerns this setup seams to really pull hard, Im pulling with a 2002 full size Z71 with V8 engine and I have to give it gas going down small grades. It also fishtail's a little more than it should may just need adjusting forward on the trailer as fuel tank 3 battery's or on the back. Any ideals.
  13. They swivel but I woulding say freely, there is a lever on one side to lock and unlock the swivel. A lever on the other side to slide them back and forth. They will slide about 4.5 inches The corner cabinets will be a problem. I looked at a few different ones before I ordered mine with different seats and none had enough clearance for my big leg to pass the cabinets. I ordered mine without the corner cabinets for that reason and got the livewell under the bench in front of the helm. I got the big fishing station in back with large livewell and put the batteries under there.
  14. No they only recline, but will go back enough to clear the cover same as the g-series helm seat if you got that option.
  15. At my age just being able to get out and enjoy the lake on my Bennington is a party. Instead of working 7 days a week which I do most of the time.
