Lori

Is the Delavan a backup pump or does it serve another purpose?

Well it's hooked up to the bottom reel so I'd say she's showed either a secondary or optional set up.

I like it.

I want this set-up Lori! Except I will use my existing 2 gpm delevan on the bottom for maintenence application and spot jobs.

The set-up shows many different options. Some guys use the 5850 for a chemical transfer pump with 12' hose on each side for the SH. The switch and fuse holder was not installed and should have been for the pic.

Great questions, guys! Any more ideas?

I am installing 3/8 SS Hanson quick disconnects on my pump so if one pump fails you can move the hoses to another pump and diagnose later.  I installed a plug quick disconnect on the inlet side of the pump and a socket on the output side.  That way if you are in a hurry swapping out pumps yoiu do not make a mistake.

Is that aluminum brackets holding the 2 stacked reeks together?  I do not think that will be sturdy enough when traveling down the road.  I will end you a pic of mine next week when the welder gets time to install it.

Lori, Looks good. You might want to add an oiler to air supply side on the pump.

all flow pumps do not need oil. actually oil can kill these types of pumps.

For the price it sounds like a good back up system. What's the cut off for the offer on this e.g order by what date?

Also what is the price on stainless steel quick releases, I am using brass I bought from menards and don't expect them to last.

I am surprised that the Brass has not failed on yet.  SS quick releases are best but you have to keep them lubed with waterproof grease.  I like Hansen quick releases the best.

This was posted by Redfisherman, Captain Fred Winters, in a thread regarding trailer problems. The pics did not paste over. This information is valuable.


Bob,

Quick answer, here is a set of FAQ's we use for our boat trailers as we are in and out of sal****er almost daily. Remember the Gulf Coast area FL to TX is the most corrosive salt water area in the US. There are some more but we can't trailer or go there.

FAQ's And Trailer Wiring Problems
When I have the headlights on and apply the brakes, all the lights on my trailer go out.

You may have a weak ground problem. A poor ground that is strong enough to provide some lighting functions but not all. When the taillights and brake lights are used at the same time, it creates the maximum amp load of the lights on the trailer. If a ground problem exists, it will show at this point. The places to check grounds are as follows.

The connector on the tow vehicle should have a ground wire secured tightly to a clean unpainted surface on the frame. A wire attached to an insulated body sheet metal panel, a surface with undercoating or rust can cause a ground problem. Test with an ohm meter for the path of least resistance. (battery disconnected from vehicle)
The t-connector from the tow vehicle should have a ground wire and should be secured tightly to a clean surface on the trailer.

Each tail lamp assembly at the back of the trailer also must be grounded. This is done in one of two ways. The first is by a separate wire coming from the back of each taillight lamp assembly being secured to the frame. The second, and most popular, ground is achieved through the bolts of the taillight lamp assembly. In this case, the lamp housing must be attached to the metal frame of the trailer. If the lights are mounted on wood or plastic material, the light circuit will never receive a ground.

Note: The trailer hitch ball of the tow vehicle should never be considered sufficient ground.

When I use one turn signal the other one blinks.

This is usually related to one of two things. The first could be a short somewhere in the system. All trailer wiring and the tow vehicle connector should be checked and tested. The second, which is the most common problem, is a weak ground in the system.

I am blowing fuses / circuit breakers on my tow vehicle.

Possible live wire shorting to ground. Check all wires for bare copper or places where a wire or cable could be pinched. Possible overload of too many lights on the trailer. Calculate the amp load your trailer is pulling, see below. Most cars are equipped to handle only standard lighting on trailers; one rear turn / brake signal on each side and 1 set of left and right marker lights. Large trucks, vans or suvs can handle more. Check your owners manual.

If you know the wattage of the bulbs on your trailer you can use the formula P = I X E

P = watts
I = amps
E = 12 (volts)

NOTE: For estimating use only. Amperage is rounded to the nearest whole value. May not apply in all cases. Always check with your tow vehicles owners manual about adding additional loads to your electrical system. Some 12 volt batteries produce up to 14 volts on full charge. Use a VOM (volt ohm meter) to test.
