Does anyone has tried that on a Mondo? Is it the same? I will have to adjust the cable for sure if I want to fit the boat in my garage...

Sampp, Just had some time to check out my Mondo on the trailer.
From the factory the screw looks to have adjustment of about an 1" or so.
Currently my tower is at 84.5" but the jack is high. I should have more time this week to adjust and get her under the 83" I hope. The problem I have is the fixed racks on the upper points will have to come off, not sure if I will order a second set of swivel or what at this point.

I think mine is up to 7'3" with the wake tow on top of the tower. I didn't have Ó l'Úveil when I to ok the measure.
I'm thinking about butine some smaller wheel and tire and swap just before backing the boat in the garage.
My new boat is still at the dealer, so not that easy to make some other measures...

I did not look at the wake tow point, will have to look at that too.

It won't go in the garage due to the tower tow point. Might look at dropping the trailer closer to the tires. Think there was a how to on it.

Should be the same, you can lower quite a bite. I am pretty sure it is only one size OZ tower ('14) that is used for the all boats. That being said you will have different lowering levels between a Mojo and a Mondo since the cabin area is a little smaller on the Mondo.

What axles do you have on the trailer, torsion or springs?

LSV, Mondo & Mojo all have the larger diameter tower (know as HD in 2013) while the Outback V still uses the smaller diameter tower.

If you physically measure the OD of the towers, what are the measurements of the OZ and OZ HD? I'm getting 1.895" with calipers on my tower.

Not positive but HD is over 2inch.
From your profile pictures you have the standard tower diameter.

I think standard Oz is 1 7/8"

Makes sense, the extra I'm seeing is from the paint. Bummer.

The OZ is 1 7/8" and the OZ HD is ~ 2 3/8

Thanks for the info guys. I guess I don't have any complaints, no issues with my tower... Just thought I had the bigger one.

On my Mondo it hits the dash and still has adjustment on the screw. Does the tower hit the dash on the LSV or Mojo. No way it fits in a 7 foot door. Going to call boatmate in the am.

On a '14 Mojo (OZ HD), adjusting the tension cable from the factory setting, the tower will hit the dash. (This is a tower without the HD lowering assist mechanism.)

If you have a spring axle trailer there is no option to lower the trailer without changing wheels, lower tires pressure, etc... If you have a torsion axle you have the option of moving the torsion arm, bringing the tire closer to the fender well. I have not personally done this but have read about others doing it on other forums.

Here is a shot of '14 Mojo and the tower (OZ HD) adjusted as low as possible without hitting the dash. The bimini sleeve in the tower tubing hits the outer edge of the dash.

A 7 foot door w Mojo, can if be done, might not be easy but is possible.

I think it's torsion....not sure since the boat is still a the dealer...he's supposed to adjust the cable so the tower is at the lowest position.... My Mondo will be on the water all summer long and will go to the garage only at the end of the season....so not that bad if I have to change the tire.....

She fits in the garage with 7' door. Had to adjust the height on the Fulton jack sand to allow the trailer to sit lower.

Patrick, do you have the spring or torsion trailer?

Thanks, Mark

Where do you adjust the tower cable on a Mondo?

Starboard side reach your hand above the cup holders, between the speakers and you will feel a cable with 2 nuts and a large washer sandwiched in between. Take two wrenches and unscrew the lower nut, then tighten the upper nut and washer to it, loosen, check, loosen, check, it is trial and error. You can only go so far and the tower will hit the chrome bezel on the speedo. I lowered mine to about a 1/2" over the bezel. It fits in my 7' tall garage attached to the hitch.
