How to Stay Safe While Towing

A huge number of things can potentially go wrong when towing a trailer, which is why it is essential that you know exactly what to do in order to tow safely. This means never exceeding your vehicle’s maximum towing capacity or your trailer, tongue or towing hitch’s maximum weight rating. In addition, it is also imperative that you follow these other safe-towing tips.

Even if you have towed the same trailer with the same vehicle hundreds of time, it is still essential that you fully inspect your vehicle, trailer, and all towing components before starting your trip. You need to make sure your trailer lights and brakes are in working order, and that you never use a hitch that isn’t designed for your vehicle.

Keeping your vehicle in good condition is also important, which means you might want to have it inspected if it has been some time since you last towed anything. At Tulley Automotive Group, our service center can quickly give your vehicle a full inspection to ensure it is capable of handling whatever you plan on towing.
