Trailer Tune Up before Summer!

If you are like most you haven't been able to get out lately due to current circumstances, chances are your horse trailer has been sitting around. That's why it's important to do a trailer tune up before summer so it's ready to go when you are! "A well-maintained trailer will be safer for both you and your horse than one in shoddy shape(Equisearch)."

Here's a handy checklist from an article at Equisearch to get you started.
(Note: Unless you're a truck/trailer-maintenance expert, ask a reputable trailer dealership or an experienced trailer-maintenance person to perform most of these tasks for you. With this information in hand, provide this person guidance, and check the trailer over when you pick it up.)

  • Check all tires.
  • Invest in spares.
  • Rotate your tires.
  • Check the brakes.
  • Tighten the lug nuts.
  • Enhance your tire kit.
  • Remove and clean the mats.
  • Check the floorboards.
  • Lubricate the metal. 
  • Make sure all the trailer lights work.
  • Check the lights.
  • Bonus: Apply reflective tape.
