I cannot see where the fresh water tank or the grey and black water tanks are to see what I may be drilling into. I was told by the dealer (who is the one that told us this is a simple job) that they won't do this because they don't want to be responsible for removing or cutting out some of the vapor barrier and gaving water get inside after taping back up. He told us to drill a hole for the chocks and cut a small hole in capor barrier where drilled hole is. Bolt chock down then tape vapor barrier vack up with Gorilla tape. How do I know where my tanks are so I don't drill through them?
I also have a 25rr and was struggling on how I was going to secure my Harleys. I have used the Pingle removable chocks in other trailers but I never felt good about their security.
I don't have a recommendation for drilling through your floor but I can tell you about the solution I came up with.
As you know the D rings in the floor are not evenly spaced when you put a bike in the center.
I purchased two US General chocks sku# 97841 from Harbor Freight for $43 each (you can find the coupons all the time) and modified them a bit to work perfectly in the 25rr (or any other trailer for that matter).
I purchased a piece of rectangular tube and mounted to the top of the chock where the eyebolts were. I then set the chock where I wanted it in the trailer by the D rings. I marked the position of the d-rings on the rectangular tube and added j-bolts. I then mounted new eyebolts to the rectangle tube so the straps from the bike would be even. I set the chock on a piece of rubber mat to protect the floor and secured the j-bolts to the d-rings with a electric impact driver so the chocks will remove in less than 30 seconds.
I have never felt so confident in the security of my bikes.
Sorry for the poor quality of the pics....I did this in a hurry. I've read this forum for a while but I've never posted anything before.
