Road-Worthy Rides: Top Tips for Trailer Maintenance

Your trailer is a steadfast companion on the road, and it deserves some TLC. And to keep it running smoothly, we cover all of your needs to keep you on the road and doing what you do. Our services include everything from lubing to welding to inspections.

  1. Regular Lubrication: We ensure all moving parts, including hinges and axles, are adequately lubricated to reduce friction and wear.
  2. Tire Inspections: We’ll check tire pressure and look for signs of wear or damage. Properly inflated and well-maintained tires are crucial for safe and efficient towing.
  3. Brake Checks: We make sure that the trailer brakes are in good working order. This includes inspecting brake pads, drums, and the brake fluid level.
  4. Lighting System Inspection: We’ll check all lights on the trailer, including brake lights and turn signals, to ensure they are operational. Replace any faulty bulbs promptly.
  5. Welding Repairs: If you notice any signs of structural damage or wear, our welding services can provide durable repairs, reinforcing the integrity of your trailer.
  6. Electrical System Maintenance: We’ll ensure the electrical connections between your trailer and towing vehicle are secure and free from corrosion. Faulty electrical connections can lead to lighting issues and brake system malfunctions.
  7. Rust Prevention: We’ll apply rust-resistant coatings to the trailer frame and components to protect against corrosion, especially if you frequently encounter wet or salty road conditions.

Keep your road companion in peak condition, ready for the miles ahead!
