    ok, but I should be able to load and unload the ski even if I don't have the key? Sorry for all the questions, but I really don't have a clue of what that key does and if I needed in order to put my ski in and out of the water. Thanks.

    Is the owners manual available online for that trailer?

    Contact BRP if you cannot find it online.

    if its locked u can t unload the ski.
    If its unlocked.. when u load the ski the 1st thing to do is to apply the safety strap at the front and only then drive out of the water.

    Guess I'm gonna have to take the thing to the water to finally know if it is lock or not. Hope it's not lock because it would be a shame to turn back home without even putting it in the water.

    Do not pull the ski with only straps on the back. You should also have a safety cable that hooks up front by the attachment. The safety cable didnt come on the 1st year of the i-fail trailers. It was added after many people dropped there 15k skis in the street.. some even dropped on there 1st trip home from the dealership.

    Get that safety cable or make 1. Its just a piece of heavy duty cable wire.

    I think it already has the cable, if the one in the photo is what you are talking about. It just got one strap in the back right now, going to buy a second one this week. I've heard so many negative things about this trailers that I was wondering if a normal winch could be put in it and replace the locking system it got right now.

    Yes that's the cable.
    With that cable on there and it strapped down in the back she is not going to go anywhere.

    Those things get broken all the time because people forget to use them. I had a dealer break mine off and I've never replaced it in 2 years. Make sure the safety cable is in and the straps are on. Also, when you launch, put the ski in forward, give some gas, then pull the release handle. This will take the weight/strain off the catch and save the cable that goes from the handle to the catch.

    Last thing: After I load up and put the straps on the back, I put my weight into the rear of the ski pushing forwards and cinch up the strap. Ski moves about 1-2 inches up and is now snug into the catch.

    it is also important to match the water level to the water level shown by the sticker on the trailer next to the wheels. this makes load-unload easier. when u get used to do all things right every time is a nice and safe trailer.

    Hey Jumpman when you gonna put this thing into the water??? It's a beast and where you live you can ride year round !!!

    I would get crazy standing this thing as a 'just bought' in the garage !!

    Strap it down to that trailer with a rope or something and go

    Grtz
