Your Vehicle: Towing Safety Guide

One thing is for certain: when your vehicle is towing something, you want to make sure you keep everything on the road and moving safely. Here are some tips for you to consider.

First of all, here are some things you should consider, such as the towing capacity of your vehicle per your manual, a safety inspection, and the maximum loaded weight to be towed. You should place the heaviest items first and should have good working towing mirrors. Also, be aware that when you are backing up, the load will go in the opposite direction you turn. Turn left for it to go right, and vice-versa.

Secondly, there are some things you should avoid doing as well. These would include towing with underinflated tires, braking heavily when driving or tailgating, or neglecting to check the lug nuts when you tow a load. Be sure to do the proper wiring as well.
