It’s hard to resist the call of the open road, especially when you have a chance to connect a camping trailer and escape for a weekend, or haul your boat to a favorite fishing spot.
But before you hitch any trailer to your truck or SUV, make sure you consider today’s towing safety tip.
- STAY WITHIN YOUR LIMITS
- PACK YOUR TRAILER PROPERLY
- EXAMINE YOUR TIRES
- TEST YOUR LIGHTS
CHECK YOUR BRAKES
Smaller, lighter trailers may not need trailer brakes, but larger trailers, or those designed to carry heavier loads, will usually incorporate a trailer brake system.
Trailer brakes should be used on trailers weighing more than 3,000 lbs.
Remember to check your brakes at least once a year, or every 12,000 miles. If you’re not an experienced mechanic, we recommend you have them serviced by a professional.
