Do the wheels on my dock have to face out?  

You can install the legs with wheels pointing in the direction that makes the most sense for your layout.  For example, getting your boat lift closer to the dock may mean turning dock wheels inward so they don't interfere.  Loosen the bolts and nuts on the brackets that hold leg in place.  Slide the leg out and turn it to the desired position and slide it back in.  Re-tighten bolts.

What can be used to clean my aluminum dock decking?

Wet the dock surface and use a soft brush to clean.  Do not use a power washer as you may damage the paint.  If the dock has been submerged in water and has become stained you can use a mild detergent.  For severe stains you can use an aluminum alloy wheel cleaner or Ox Out 536 which is a stronger chemical cleaner.  Always ensure you use chemicals away from the shoreline to keep them from entering the lake.

Vertical Lift Easy-Level System leg repair.

Occasionally, an inner leg can be damaged when raising or lowering the lift.  If your boat lift stays in position but the adjusting screw turns without raising or lowering the lift the bevel gear assembly is damaged.  We offer a repair kit #511-06200-00 that includes two new bevel gears, two roll pins, and a proper size drill bit with instructions.  The inner leg is held in with two carriage head bolts about half way up the corner post.  Remove the two carriage bolts and the inner leg assembly can be pulled out the bottom of the corner post.  Follow the instructions to repair the bevel gear assembly.  We also offer complete inner leg assemblies if needed.  Contact your dealer for more information.
