Default Trailer rollers

Hello all, my trailer rollers occasionally will tilt if I donít put boat on trailer in right spot. I have tightened them as tight as they will go, but it still happens. I can still trailer the boat and launch, but this sucks long term. Anyone have this happen, and could it be as simple as new but/bolt/washer?
Thanks
Good times

So hard to visualize what your trying to say. Wobble rollers ? Drive on trailer? Pics would help.

Not wobble, I believe they are called bunk rollers or bunker roller. They support most of weight of the boat. 2, Like 6ft long metal bars with three black rubber wheel type pieces that the bottom of boat rests on. I will try to link photo, but I have yet to be able to.

IT's a bunk with rollers.. Usually rollers on metal brackets and ar designed to tilt to boat hull angle.

By the looks of the bunk rollers laying on its side you have one of two issues. The bolts are simply loose or the bolts holes are elongated from wear. Youíll need to investigate further to determine which is the case.

Do yourself a favor and buy yourself some self centering keel rollers. Worth it.
