Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Could you test this and put 8 on all the lines and update with a picture please (4/4/23 12:31 AM)
A: This Unit has been in storage out of service for approx. 3-years. We did plug it into shop power to verify it will power up. It will need the batteries replaced before taking to a job site. It has a set number of messages prestored, I do not know if you can program it to light up all 8's as per your request. (4/4/23 8:34 AM)
Q: what are the dimensions of the trailer platform? (4/5/23 1:06 PM)
A: Could you please be more specific on what area of the trailer you would like me to measure? I will be glad to get whatever measurements you need. (4/5/23 3:36 PM)
Q: Could you please tell me how many batteries this unit takes? (4/10/23 12:39 PM)
A: It holds 4-batteries. They are a Part #GC-10. We did not charge them or test them. I would recommend charging them up and testing before replacement. I will upload a photo of them in the utility box. (4/10/23 2:54 PM)
Q: Can you post the measurements of the trailer length width and height total overall unit please (4/12/23 12:01 PM)
A: The measurements on the trailer are in the written description. It is a standard proportioned gooseneck, so the height would depend on what you are towing it with. Possibly more info might be available on the MacLander web page. I am away from the complex today working with the street dept, so I am unable to take any additional photos or measurements. (4/12/23 1:10 PM)
Q: Does this unit come with a controller? Can you post pictures of the compartments opened to see the computer keyboard control panels to change messages (4/12/23 12:03 PM)
A: Yes it does. It is in the bottom of the photo which shows the control panel compartment opened. I am away from the complex today working with the street dept so I am unable to load more photos. (4/12/23 1:07 PM)
