Take Towing Precautions Before Hitting the Road

With warm weather just around the corner, you may have decided to get that boat you’ve had your eye on. There are a few considerations to bear in mind when you’re ready to tow it. The first thing to verify is the towing weight allowance for your vehicle. That includes tow and tongue weight. If your vehicle, the hitch, and the trailer are compatible, you can move on to other safety aspects.

Inspect the trailer to make sure that it’s in proper working order and able to secure the boat. Don’t forget to verify that the tires and lug nuts are in safe condition. From there, go on and run through the lighting system. Check the tail and brake lights as well as the turn signals. It’s also recommended to install towing mirrors for improved visibility.
