I'm new to towing and I am working on a trailer safety checklist to go through before we ride. Any additions are welcome and appreciated.
- Check receiver - ensure it is secure to vehicle
- Check hitch - ensure it is secure within receiver and pin is secure and locked
- Check ball - ensure it is secure
- Ensure safety chain/s are connected
- Ensure lighting system is connected and is operational
- Check tire pressure
- Ensure contents on trailer are secure with no loose tie-downs.
