Frequently Asked Questions

 

Question: How do I test my breakaway kit?

Answer: Before each trip, you should test your breakaway switch by doing the following:

Tires and Wheels

Tire pressure is a simple yet very important daily inspection of your trailer.

Battery Maintenance

Trailers with brakes will have a small 12V battery that is designed to apply the trailer brakes in an emergency if the trailer should ever become detached from the tow vehicle during travel. Like any battery these need to be tested and maintained and replaced when necessary. Some trailers are equipped with a charge line that will charge off of the tow vehicle while being towed; however, not all vehicles are equipped to charge the trailer battery. Check with our service department if you are unsure if the trailer battery is being charged. If the trailer is to be stored for longer than a couple of months it is a good idea to remove the battery and store it where it will not freeze plugged into a battery maintainer.
