Safe Towing Practices

February 28th, 2018 by

Nothing says summer quite like enjoying it from a boat. If you’ve decided to add one to your summer kit, it’s recommended to take a few preliminary steps to ensure safe travels. The first is to determine if your vehicle can handle the extra weight. You will find that information in the owner’s manual.

Check the manufacturer’s specific guidelines for loaded and tongue weight capacities. You will also need a tow hitch that’s designed to fit your vehicle’s bumper and is appropriately attached. From there, move on to trailer inspection. Don’t overlook the tires, wheels, and lug nuts. It’s also recommended to use tow mirrors, as they improve your field of vision.

When you’re ready to set sail, stop in and let one of our knowledgeable service technicians run a final inspection on your tow package. We’re here at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Limon, CO to assist you with all of your vehicle’s needs.
