Nothing more than a 15' center console if you want to make it up the boat ramp on low tide

This all depend on where an how far you want to pull the boat. Also the terrain. A lot of hills ect. I would say a small boat no bigger than 16ft. make sure the traier is balanced only load on a concrete ramp. Try not to load on to steep of a ramp. Also try avoid a lot of hills the main difference on trucks and cars among other things is the transmission and the way its geared. Some transmitions even have thier own cooling sytem due to the fact that towing anything tens to put a lot of strain all transmissions.After a while check your tran fluid to make sure it isnt burning. Pull the stick and look at it. if its not the redish color and if it smells burnt i recomend discontinuing towing. Also look into uhual they sold me a hitch for an 85 300zx was perfect. It had all the specs with it.

I need to install a 4 flat to pull small boat. It's a flat connector[w/4 holes] I want to splice into my taillight system to pull boat.


sorry Bev.
ah , you added the word connector.
how cute,?
next time ill quote and then answer.
the wiring of a boat is easy. (in all cases)
the reason i could not help was this.
"howto, install a 4 flat."
and bev,
some cars run USA wiring on car and other cars here, run European wiring (inside car)
and on the latter you need to use and adapter.
if you go to any auto store, you can buy that.

also many cars, have trailer plugs hidden in the body. and maker of car sells the kit that fits that. (most do)
and some kits (autostores sell it) have a nice splice kit that fits there.
or has splitter jack. (for behind tail lights)
and then there is Uhaul and the cutting and taping of wires and damm wire nuts..
quality of the job, matter... to some...


i'll quote the FSM for you.
Wiring the vehicle for towing is fairly easy. There are a number of good wiring kits available and these should be used, rather than trying to design your own.

All trailers will need brake lights and turn signals as well as tail lights and side marker lights. Most areas require extra marker lights for over-wide trailers. Also, most areas have recently required back-up lights for trailers, and most trailer manufacturers have been building trailers with back-up lights for several years.

Additionally, some Class I, most Class II and just about all Class III trailers will have electric brakes. Add to this number an accessories wire, to operate trailer internal equipment or to charge the trailer's battery, and you can have as many as seven wires in the harness.

Determine the equipment on your trailer and buy the wiring kit necessary. The kit will contain all the wires needed, plus a plug adapter set which includes the female plug, mounted on the bumper or hitch, and the male plug, wired into, or plugged into the trailer harness.

When installing the kit, follow the manufacturer's instructions. The color coding of the wires is usually standard throughout the industry. One point to note: some domestic vehicles, and most imported vehicles, have separate turn signals. On most domestic vehicles, the brake lights and rear turn signals operate with the same bulb. For those vehicles without separate turn signals, you can purchase an isolation unit so that the brake lights won't blink whenever the turn signals are operated, or, you can go to your local electronics supply house and buy four diodes to wire in series with the brake and turn signal bulbs. Diodes will isolate the brake and turn signals.(euro) The choice is yours. The isolation units are simple and quick to install, but far more expensive than the diodes. The diodes, however, require more work to install properly, since they require the cutting of each bulb's wire and soldering in place of the diode.

One, final point, the best kits are those with a spring loaded cover on the vehicle mounted socket. This cover prevents dirt and moisture from corroding the terminals. Never let the vehicle socket hang loosely; always mount it securely to the bumper or hitch.
end quote.

the wring of the connector is your choice
but if you want to use the standards? USA we have our own....
here that is.

non of this is a secret
nor magic
only the Euro wired cars are tricky, diodes or the expensive black box...

im off fishing in my 4 flat.

I need the boat and trailer (stock trailer) weight


Pull the trailer and boat to a scale and weigh it to get the exact weight. Most trucking companies,gravel yards, junk yards or even a state scale where they check for overweight trucks have scales to do that.

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon


1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

Regards, Andy
