With winter around the corner, it’s time to catch up on any outstanding trailer checkups and service. Ice, road salt, and snow can wreak havoc on a non-maintained trailer, and lead to unnecessary hazards. Common repairs include:
With a busy hauling schedule, lights and signal indicators can become an afterthought for many drivers. Staying on top of your electrical system not only ensures safety on the road, but also helps products stored in air conditioned trailers arrive in peak condition.
Brakes and Wheel Bearings
Due to heavy use, brakes and bearings wear down over time, presenting a significant hazard if left unchecked. Regular maintenance and repair is vital, even outside a mandatory CVIP inspection, and can save overall costs if damages are caught early.
If you have noticed that your truck is having a hard time building air pressure when hooked up to a trailer, it is advisable to inspect couplings and air lines to determine if a leak has occurred. Small or large leaks will cause safety issues and braking problems.
