Lincoln Nautilus 2018-2023 Owners Manual / Towing a Trailer / Launching or Retrieving a Boat or Personal Watercraft. Towing Weights and Dimensions

Launching or Retrieving a Boat or Personal Watercraft

When backing down a ramp during boat launching or retrieval:

  • Do not allow the static water level to rise above the bottom edge of the rear bumper.
  • Do not allow waves to break higher than 6 in (15 cm) above the bottom edge of the rear bumper.

Exceeding 6 in (15 cm) could allow water to enter vehicle components, causing internal damage to the components and affecting driveability, emissions and reliability.

Note: Replace the rear axle lubricant anytime the rear axle has been submerged in water.

Note: Disconnect the trailer wiring connector before backing the trailer into the water.

Note: Reconnect the trailer wiring connector after removing the trailer from the water.

What Is the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight

The maximum loaded trailer weight is the highest possible weight of a fully loaded trailer the vehicle can tow.

For additional information, visit www.fleet.ford.com/towing-guides.

Calculating the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight for Your Vehicle

  1. Start with the gross combined weight rating for your vehicle model and axle ratio.
  2. Subtract all of the following that apply to your vehicle:
    • Vehicle curb weight.
    • Hitch hardware weight, for example a draw bar, ball, locks or weight distributing hardware.
    • Driver weight.
    • Passenger weight.
    • Payload, cargo and luggage weight.
    • Aftermarket equipment weight.

This equals the maximum loaded trailer weight for this combination.

Note: The trailer tongue load is considered part of the payload for your vehicle. Reduce the total payload by the final trailer tongue weight.

Note: Consult an authorized dealer to determine the maximum trailer weight allowed for your vehicle if you are not sure.
