Making sure your boat makes it to the water
As we start to see signs of spring and the boating season ahead, many of us have our checklist for the boat to go through and prepare for that first trip of the season. Checking your trailer should be on that list too. Here are a few things to look for while inspecting your trailer after the winter storage months.
-Check the condition of your tires including the spare.
-Have the wheel bearings been checked, greased and/or replaced if need be.
-Have someone check your lights to insure all are working properly- brake lights, turn signals, etc.
-Check rollers and support pads.
-Check your trailer hitch and all related equipment to see if it is functioning properly.
-Inspect the trailer safety chains and the wire rope and trailer winch.
