Safe Towing Practices

One of the most enjoyable aspects of warm summer weather is taking the boat out. Getting it hitched properly to your vehicle, however, takes a few steps to ensure everyone’s safety. The first is to verify vehicle and towing compatibility.

You can find out what your vehicle’s towing capacity is by reading the owner’s manual. It will provide you with the exact specifications, including load and tongue weight capacity. If it’s a good match, then you can move on to the tow hitch. It should be designed to fit your vehicle’s bumper. From there, inspect the trailer itself. The boat should be secured on a well-maintained trailer. That includes the tires, wheels, and lug nuts. When you’ve completed the basic load inspection, move on to lights and mirrors.
