Common Misconceptions of Trailer Ownership – Part 2

This week we are discussing a few of the common misconceptions about owning a trailer in Olympia WA.

If you have been contemplating a trailer purchased for a while now, but are unsure of taking the plunge because of things you have heard, hopefully this blog will ease your mind a bit!

Misconception number three: you must have an indoor spot to store your trailer when you aren’t using it.

Reality: While having an indoor area to store your trailer is beneficial to ensuring that your trailer remains in prime condition, it is not a requirement! As a matter of fact, many of our customers store their trailers outside when they are not in use. It is best to store your trailer underneath a covering of some sort, but in many cases, a simple trailer cover will protect your trailer for most of the elements. This might not be the most ideal way to store your trailer, but it will do the job.

Misconception number four: I will never use my new trailer!

Reality: Many of our clients find that they actually use their trailer more than they thought they would. This is because you do not actually realize all of the times that having a new trailer would make things easier! You probably have forgotten every time that you have had to make alternate plans when something needs to be hauled and all of those delivery fees you have had to pay.

In our next post, we will discuss a few more misconceptions of trailer ownership!

Stay Safe on The Road With These Tips!

 

Trailer Boss is your trusted retailer of trailers in Seattle WA and surrounding areas that puts your needs above all else! This includes your safety!

It is incredibly important to all of us that you are both happy with your shiny new trailer and safe while on the road!

To help keep you prepared for all of the issues that may come up, this week we are discussing some of the problems that may pop up while hauling far from home.

So, what if something that is tied down to your trailer flies off?

We always recommend attempting to retrieve items that fly off of your trailer.  That is of course if it is safe to do so! Debris on the highway is not an uncommon sight, but leaving items on the road can be dangerous to other drivers. Especially if the items that fly off are heavy, large, or could possibly fly up and block someone’s sight while they are driving.

If you do have to retrieve an item, it is important to remember, that safety always comes first! It is probably safer to retrieve a lost item on a back road or highway than on the freeway.

This is just one problem that could potentially arise while you are hauling a trailer! Being prepared and staying alert can definitely help keep you safe on the road!

Problems that Arise While Towing

Our last blog discussed the important things to consider when leaving on a road trip this summer with your trailer in Spokane Washington!

Once you had hit the road, it is important to be watchful of many things. Hauling a trailer means extra possibilities for things to go wrong and it is always a good idea to be prepared.

This week, we would like to discuss some of the possible issues you may encounter while driving far away from home.

What if you break down on the side of the road? If this happens to you, it is most important that you move as far off of the actual road as possible to prevent any accidents!

While you might think that people will see you and move out of the way, in many cases accidents occur while people are broken down on the road.

It is also a good idea, that only one person should be in the road working on the vehicle if necessary working on the problem. If it is something you can fix yourself, such as a flat, or a simple mechanical issue, try to do so as quickly as possible. If there is no shoulder, it is safest for the passengers to stay inside the vehicle. That said, if there is a convenience store, a park, a parking lot, or a field nearby, it might be a good idea for the passengers to exit the vehicle and stand far away from the road to prevent injury.

If you discover that the problem is not easily fixed, it is a good idea to call a tow truck to take you and your trailer out of harms way as quickly as possible!

Tips for a Great Summer Road Trip

If you are planning to use your trailer for a big road trip this summer, then this blog is for you! Today, your trailer experts at Trailer Boss are going to offer a few tips for taking that big trip!

The first thing that you need to realize, is that taking a road trip with your trailer in Seattle WA will require quite a bit more preparation than just taking your tow vehicle. It is a good idea to have all parts of your trailer checked out by a trailer technician, or yourself before hitting the road. One way to know which to parts to inspect is that if it moves or is connected to something, it should be looked at!

Once you have fully inspected your trailer, another important thing to remember is a trailer toolkit! Any tools that you may need for your trailer while you were at home, are tools that you may end up needing on the road! Regardless of how well inspected your trailer is, problems do pop up! The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the road, without the tools you need to make it to your destination!

Another thing to remember is that when you consider the weight of your trailer, you will need to factor in the weight of yourself and your passengers as well! Being over-limit can cause many issues.

Once you have considered these important things, it is time for you to hit the road!

At Trailer Boss, we wish you safe travels on all of your summer road trips! If you need a new trailer in Seattle WA for this year’s journey, come on into one of our three locations!

Summer Trailer Inspection

At Trailer Boss, we take trailer safety very seriously! We also believe that setting up your trailer for summer is a something that everyone should take part in.

As the summer weekends heat up, millions of people are dusting off their trailers for jobs, recreation, and yard work!  While your trailer has possibly not moved since you put it away over the winter, many things may have happened during its slumber.

Here are some of the issues to pay attention to that may have popped up over the winter months:

  • Tires and wheels: Nitrogen, lug-nuts/torquing your lugs, air pressure and dry-rot.
  • Draining water lines: Draining anti-freeze, clearing lines, draining the bypass, flushing the system and using the water pump.
  • Battery maintenance: Working with “deep-cycle” 6-volt batteries, checking for corrosion and using distilled water.
  • Roof Preparation: Proper movement on the roof, check vents, check seams and the edges and re-caulking.
  • Axle lubrication: Axle seizures, checking axle bearings, greasing the bearings and greasing techniques.

     

     

In order to make sure that you are taking part in safe hauling this summer, each of these areas should be inspected and cleaned!

If you have any questions, your professionals at Trailer Boss will be happy to answer them!  We also have a variety of utility, teardrop, and dump trailers in Spokane WA for your to choose from if you are in the market for a new one!
