3 Tips For Good Truck Trailer Maintenance

by Christine Matthews

When it comes to your business, ensure you understand that your trailer is just as important as the truck. If the trailer is not functioning as it should, this will have a direct impact on the manner in which your truck operates. Make sure you know how to keep your trailer in better condition.

Perform Inspections

Take the time to perform routine inspections of the tires. Check for obvious problems, such as broken lights, broken locking mechanisms, and dents, but also less obvious issues like roof damage. If the roof of the trailer is damaged, as it rains or snows, moisture could leak into the inside of the trailer and damage the trailer itself, as well as any contents on the inside.

Over time this excess moisture could also cause rust to form, which could quickly spread and cause significant damage all around the trailer.

Protect the Tires

You should also take the time to protect the tires on the trailers. In terms of tire care, one of the best things you can do is to ensure that the tires are properly inflated. Make this habit a regular practice, such as each time you fuel.

Next, look at the tires for uneven wear. Uneven wear is an indication that your tires are in need of replacement and it could also signal a problem with the trailer's alignment or suspension system. Tires with uneven wear may not have the same stopping power as a tire in better condition.

Maintain the Brakes

Make certain you are taking the time to maintain the brake system within the trailer. This step is critical to your safety and the safety of other motorists on the road. Whenever there is a problem with the brakes in the trailer, the brake system within the truck will be forced to work harder.

Since the brake system inside the truck is not equipped to handle the weight of the trailer, you will have reduced stopping power or even worse; the truck may not stop at all. Even if you're able to stop the truck, this will likely cause significant damage to the truck's brake system.

These are just some of the tips that can help ensure you have a smoother operation. In addition to these tips, in the event of a problem with your trailer, ensure you're taking immediate steps to have your trailer serviced whenever there is a problem.

I have always loved the idea of finding an older home and making it beautiful, but a few years ago I was left struggling with what to do with a home that seemed beyond repair. It was old, outdated, and incredibly damaged, but I knew that I could make things better by doing a few things a little differently. I began to work with a professional contractor to identify different areas that we should start on, and within a few short weeks things were moving along.
