does the bow eyelet go on top or the bottom of the rollers on a trailer. i have a bunk trailer,the eyelet is below the top rollers. or does it matter. i've seen most on top.

If you are talking about the bow stop roller on the winch stand it should allways go on top of the bow eye. Your winch strap/rope should be below the roller.
With your boat winched up tight and the roller above the bow eye the bow is held down better.

My eyelet goes above the stop. It is a real pain in the ass unloading the boat too, because the eye has a tendency to get stuck and sit on the stop as I am offloading. I don't think it is possible for the eyelet to go below the stop on my trailer. My trailer is equiped with a V and not a roller for the bow. The V also puts black marks on the bow.

I hate the way mine is set up and need to do something about it...any suggestions?

Most trailer winch stands have some vertical adjustment, some you have to get creative with.
You can replace that V block with a non marking Stoltz V block or convert it to the roller style.
