The ad says:

"It works but goes very slowly. I think it has something to do with the compression. "

I am looking to buy this, really cheap ($500)... the only problem listed is above and the person selling it has no other ideas on what is wrong.

("I paid $2500. It is in my driveway. I am not selling the trailer Please dont ask me a lot of questions. I dont know the answers. I am a girl - no mechanical skill.")

If the compression has something wrong with it is it an easy fix? what else could be wrong with it making it run slow and would those be cheap/easy to fix?

I do not have much mechanical skill (with jetskis), however I have no problem learning. I understand that the ad is vague, however that is why I am asking if people think it is worth the risk.
