Crim’s Trailer Sales in Warren County has either trailer towing experts or trailer towing newbies coming through out doors. We know that towing a trailer for the first time can be very intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Knowing the fundamentals to safe and effective trailer towing is important. Whether you’re a well seasoned trailer tower who could use a few reminders, or are a newbie, we want you to have these tips. Here they are:

1. Find Out What Your Truck Can Take

Your car/truck/SUV can only take a certain amount of weight. You should be able to check it out in the owners manual or even look for it online. Make sure that you don’t overdo the load for your particular trailer or vehicle. Another factor you’ll want to consider is the combined weight of yourself and your passengers when you make these trips.

2. Know Proper Hitch Techniques

You should check that you get the perfect sized hitch ball for your trailer. Getting the wrong size can be extremely dangerous because it’s the connector. You should also make sure when you hitch your vehicle to your trailer that it is level.

3. Check All Your Brakes

You should be aware of both your vehicles brakes condition as well as your trailers. You should make sure that your trailer’s electronic brakes are working properly and responding well to your controller. These brakes are one of the most important safety features you could have for your vehicle.

4. Keep Your Distance

When you are driving on the road, make sure that you leave plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you. This is to assure that you have ample space for braking at the right moment. You should also be aware about if your trailer starts to sway–if this happens slightly brake so that you can get it aligned again.
