The vehicle you drive should always be maintained to ensure it is in the best condition possible. When you bring it in for regular maintenance inspections, we can check the various parts and components of the vehicle for you. By following regular maintenance inspections, you can help to ensure that everything is working as efficiently as it should be. Before you get ready to tow a trailer, you will want to make sure that the trailer is inspected as well. This way, you can help to avoid an unexpected breakdown, especially if there is heavy traffic on the road.
Checking the Tires
Make sure to check the tires on the trailer. You will want to do so, especially if the trailer has sat all winter. The tires can develop dry rot if they have sat without moving. Exposure to the temperatures, sun, and weather all play a part in how the condition of the tires will end up. As they sit for a length of time as well, they might start to develop a flat spot as well. This will lead to a shorter lifespan of the tires as well. You should also make sure that the bearings are in prime condition as well. Doing so will help the trailer to be safe and reliable.
You should always be aware of any issues your vehicle might have. If you notice that the dashboard warning lights turn on, be sure that you contact us. When these illuminate, it can be a sign of something that is starting to cause issues for your vehicle. If you ignore the lights, then it will become worse over time, and end up costing you more in the long run as well.
