Get Your Utility Trailer Ready For Spring

No Comments

If you are just pulling your trailer out for the first time this spring, you need to carefully check the tires.

At all three of our Trailer Boss locations—Rochester, Marysville, and Olympia–we have often seen dump trailers, or cargo trailers, or even lighter utility trailers that have sat all winter without proper protection. The tires on these trailers can grow dry rot as they sit.  Dry rot is the number one reason for trailer tires failing.

Check your tire pressure regularly when traveling. It’s a good idea to kick the tires every time you stop for gas just to see if they are full pressure.

Inspect the spare tire, too. Nothing is worse than getting a flat tire and then realizing that your spare isn’t inflated.

Set the tire pressure appropriate for the load. When you are traveling empty, tire pressure can be reduced to 10 or 15 psi. This will allow the tires to absorb bumps and other anomalies, keeping the trailer from bouncing around and shaking the tow vehicle. Of course, full tire inflation is needed for a full load.

Don’t overfill the tires.

Come on in and have the certified technicians at Trailer Boss examine your utility trailer to see if it is safe for the road, or to purchase a new one.

Here is a great little utility trailer you might want to consider.

This is a new Maxey which has a built-in wheel chock, tie downs, steel deck, bi-fold rear ramp, 3500# axle with 15 inch tires.
