It's wintertime, so next week I have to drag my boat (approx 600kg incl. trailer) out of the water on a ramp.
Anyone has experience with this? Can I leave the car while it's on parking brake? Use creep mode? etc.
I haven’t pulled a boat but I have pulled a trailer that is about 480kg and parked on an incline without an issue. The parking brake is set when you press the button. You may want to set it to chill mode and I am not sure if creep or whatever the new mode is called would be better. My guess is creep, but the new one petal mode will lock the brakes when your foot is not on the accelerator. Both modes have advantages and disadvantages.
If the boat is that light I would presume the trailer doesn't need to go that deep.
Small boats you want the trailer much shallower since they draft little they don't stay centered on a trailer too far under water.
I think it will all be fine without any special attention.
I tow a 23 foot yamaha twin engine boat a lot. Always on steep ramps. Never had any issues with brake holding on the ramp or X pulling it. In fact it almost pulls too hard....so I always use Chill mode. If you have any other questions pm me
I'd say the first time, stay in the driver's seat, and bring a helper to load the boat on the trailer.
When I get my hitch installed, I'll use my Model 3 to launch my Waverunner. That probably weighs 1000lbs with trailer, about 450kgs. My old Chevy Volt had no problems pulling or launching the Waverunner.
