Are you ready for towing season?
Spring is here and warmer weather is fast approaching. Even though several families are planning to fly somewhere over spring break, many others will soon be heading out for a road trip to their favorite camping spot.
During the recent pandemic, the RV industry experienced a sudden increase in sales as many folks - unable to board a plane - went out and purchased a camper trailer for the very first time. If you are someone who recently joined the thousands of others who like nothing better than to hook up their camper trailer and head out on the highway... we want to ask you something: “Are you ready for towing season?
We’re sure you will focus on the trailer, making sure it’s cleaned up, topped up, pressured up, and fully inspected. As important as that is, we’re not going to focus on your travel trailer. That’s because getting ready for towing season also requires a properly maintained tow vehicle that is ready and able to pull your trailer.
Have you thought about getting a suspension upgrade?
If you’re gonna take your rig on a fairly long road trip, here are some no-brainer tips that will help you stay happy and safe.
Check Your Tires
Low air pressure can cause accidents or blowouts. In order to help prevent this, take time to check the air pressure in your tires. Also, check for slow leaks.
Make Sure Your Vehicle’s Maintenance Is Up To Date
Before going on a trip towing a trailer, go over your vehicle and make sure your truck maintenance is up to date.
Double Check The Size Of Your Ball Mount
The wrong-sized hitch ball is one of the leading causes of towing accidents. Your hitch ball and trailer coupler need to match.
Make Sure Your Lights Are Working
Wires wear out over time and lights need to be replaced periodically. When you wire up your trailer, make sure you have someone help check that all of your lights and signals are working.
Once you’ve prepared your vehicle for the road, it’s important to drive safely on the road. If you’ve never driven a trailer before, take time to practice. It could make the difference between a safe towing experience and a possible disaster on the road.
