Safety Basics of Towing

If you have a larger SUV or a light truck, you have the ability to tow a recreational vehicle or some kind of trailer that carries tools or other supplies. Every owner's manual contains information on maximum tow capacity, tongue capacity and other specifications. Stay within these parameters whenever you tow another vehicle.

Whenever you tow, make sure you evenly distributed weight in the towed vehicle. Make sure that tires are always properly inflated and check tire pressure as you travel. Always use extended side-view mirrors to ensure that you can see vehicles behind you.

When you haven't towed a vehicle or trailer in a considerable length of time on the streets of California, MO, it's wise to get an inspection. The service department at Spieler’s will be happy to perform this service for you to ensure that your hitch is properly installed and that your vehicle remains safe during towing.
