Here is an odd one. I returned from a day of fun and when my wife backed the trailer down the launch I thought something was missing from my trailer. Sure enough the V-bracket or pad was completely gone! I contacted my local dealer and they said that the part was discontinued. The trailer is 13 years old and still in great shape, but minus the V-pad. Any suggestions? Below is the schematics that EZ Loader sent me with the missing piece circled in red. Is it critical that I replace it?
