Nitrous I have Rev 10's fixed clamps if you want to PM me your number. Only used 2 outings before I got rid of my boat this summer.
what does the foot area (dont know the correct term) in front front of the drivers seat look like? My 18 T23 has a removable panel (not solid fiberglass). I recreated the panel and mounted a ported box on the back side of it using EPVC. Only used 1/2", but would use 3/4" or a stiffer material if i have to do it again.

Our 2020 trailer has 2 quick release pins on each guide pole.
CAn you take a photo when you get a chance. My 2019 has bolts and I really know of no way to use quick release pins... but maybe it's possible.
Similar to wedge88 I was dropping the trailer hitch and deflating the tires a bit to get in and out of the garage for my mom's boat. If I was doing that more than twice a year I would have dropped the trailer or looked into raising the garage door.

So, I did some investigating last night and used the fake a lake to run the boat. I moved the ground I had found from the side of the engine to the main grounding point at the starter. Still had noise. Started messing around with RCAs and removed them from the WS EQ and noise was still present, although not as loud. Removed RCAs from amps and noise went away. Tried running an old Component Video cable (only RCAs I had long enough) from WS EQ to Amp and had a slight noise, but not near as bad. The WS EQ is mounted under the steering wheel on the dash, to the right. I have a big subwoofer box with false panel, so no access to the wiring behind the dash. I pulled the small cabin speaker mounted in the small storage area that allowed me to see behind the dash and I can see all the RCAs from the WS EQ running near the power wire that I assume is for the breaker panel (larger wire, looks to be 1/0). RCAs also pass directly under some relays. I'm guessing this is where all the noise is coming from when engine is running. I also think the EQ is probably mounted to close to power wire, or at least I hope, which could be why I still heard some slight noise when running old component video RCA.
Is there an easy way to pull the smaller dash screen to gain access behind dash? The speaker hole is too small and too far away to be helpful. Looking for an easy way to gain access under the dash without having to pull the custom subwoofer box below the dash.
Update - Took the boat apart last night and tried to run high quality RCAs from Maliview receiver to RF6000 black box, then from RF6000 black box to WS EQ, then from EQ to a Single Amp. Could never get the high pitched noise to go away. The only thing I can figure now is that it may be the WS EQ, although it doesn't make sense that the high pitched noise is only there when the engine is running and non-existent when the engine is off. I did bypass the WS EQ and if I remember correctly, the noise was gone with the engine running, but I tried so many different things last night I just cannot remember. I'm looking forward to Kdmann64 reply after he water tests the audio shops theory.
What really stumps me is that this noise is only present with the engine running...... If it was a ground loop, you would think the noise would be present all the time. If it was the EQ, you would think the noise would be preset all the time. I've checked the alternator and it seems to be fine, unplugged it to make sure it was not sending amperage to the battery just in case it was the alternator, but that did not help. Besides, the noise does not fluctuate with engine speed.
