Equipment Trailer Maintenance Tips

Wheel lugs can shift and settle quickly after being first assembled. You should check and tighten the lugs after the first 10, 25 and 50 miles of driving. Failure to perform this check may result in a wheel coming loose from the trailer, causing a crash leading to death or serious injury.

Tire Safety Checklist

  • Check tire pressure regularly (at least once a month), including the spare.
  • Inspect tires for uneven wear patterns on the tread, cracks, foreign objects, or other signs of wear or trauma.
  • Remove bits of glass and foreign objects wedged in the tread.
  • Make sure your tire valves have valve caps.
  • Check tire pressure before going on a long trip.
  • Do not overload your trailer.

Before each tow, check the trailer taillights, stoplights, turn signals and any clearance lights for proper operation.

If the trailer has been struck or impacted, on or near the wheels, or if the trailer has struck a curb, inspect the rims for damage (i.e. being out of round); and replace any damaged wheel. Inspect the wheels for damage every year, even if no obvious impact has occurred.

If you ever have a problem or question about your trailer, please give us a call.  We’re happy to help!
