Before starting out on a trip

Before starting out on a trip

● Check that the vehicle and vehicle-tohitch mounting are in good condition. If any problems are apparent, do not tow the trailer.

● Check that the vehicle sits horizontally with the trailer attached. If the vehicle is tipped sharply up at the front and down at the rear, check the total trailer weight, GVW, GAWs and tongue load again, then confirm that the load and its distribution are acceptable.

● Check that the tire pressures are correct.

● Check that the vehicle and trailer are connected properly. Confirm that

– the trailer tongue is connected properly to the hitch ball.

– the trailer lights connector is connected properly and trailer’s brake lights illuminate when the vehicle’s brake pedal is pressed, and that the trailer’s turn signal lights flash when the vehicle’s turn signal lever is operated.

– the safety chains are connected properly.

– all cargo in the trailer is secured safety in position.

– the side mirrors provide a good rearward field of view without a significant blind spot.

● Sufficient time should be taken to learn the “feel” of the vehicle/trailer combination before starting out on a trip. In an area free of traffic, practice turning, stopping and backing up.
