Tips for Successfully Towing Loads

Towing a trailer involves thorough safety planning. You’ll want to confirm that your tow vehicle can pull the weight. In addition to selecting the right tow vehicle, you can apply safety strategies when loading items on the trailer.

The heaviest items need to go in first. Tie them down to prevent shifting during transport. Also distribute the weight evenly throughout the trailer and keep the center of gravity low. The tires on your trailer matter a great deal. Check that the tires are rated to carry your specific load and that their tire pressure is correct. Improper tire pressure could make a trailer sway and cause you to lose control on the road.

To make sure that your tow vehicle is in good working order, you can bring it to Detroit Lakes Chrysler Dodge & Jeep. Call our service center in Detroit Lakes, MN today.
