Summer is here and that means it is time to get outside and enjoy the sun! No matter what your summer plans are, you probably already have many plans for your trailer in Olympia, WA. Maybe you are very ambitious with a huge weekend “to-do” list or maybe you are planning to tow your ATV to all of the best trails.
Maybe you will be hooking up your equipment trailer to put them to work. That said, before you take off on your first haul, here are some of the things you may want to consider:
Inspect the tires on your trailer: If your trailer has been sitting in the driveway or in storage all winter long, it might be a great idea to inspect the tires.
Inspect the brakes on the tires: If your trailer is equipped with brakes, make sure to examine them thoroughly. You might need to replace the brake pad if you notice some wear and tear.
Check the lights on your trailer: Connect the trailer components to the electrical plugs and make sure that all of the lights are properly illuminating from the blinkers, side markers, and stop lights.
Test the suspension on your trailer: You notice that your trailer is sitting lower than usual, you might have an issue with the suspension. If the trailer is sitting unusually low, you may have an issue with the suspension. Check to make sure that all of the suspension components are in working order before loading your trailer.
Inspect the coupler on your trailer: The coupler is very important because it is what attaches the trailer to your vehicle. You definitely want to make sure that it is working properly, because a worn out coupler can cause major issues down the road.
Once you have taken the time to give your trailer a in depth inspection, you can set it up and out it to work! If you have any questions, or want a professional to check out your trailer in Seattle, WA, call us at Trailer Boss today! Click here to read more about us!
