How to increase towing safety in 30 minutes – part 2
Increase towing safety
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 safety tip: “Pack your trailer properly”
- Stay within your limits
PACK YOUR TRAILER PROPERLY
Even though it’s incredibly important to stay within the limits of your tow vehicle, it’s also imperative to make sure all cargo is properly positioned.
First of all, you’re going to want roughly 60% of the trailer’s load placed over the front half of the trailer. Additionally, you need the tongue weight somewhere between 10% – 15% of the total weight of the trailer.
Furthermore, weight should be evenly distributed on the left and right sides of the trailer. Once the load is properly distributed and an ideal tongue weight is achieved, all cargo needs to be secured to prevent the load from shifting.
Here’s something else that takes less than 30 minutes…
