Learn The Rules of Safe Towing Before You Drive Away

If you've got a truck and have bought a boat or trailer, it's tempting to drive off towing your new toy right away. Towing disasters and road accidents aren't worth it. We've got some tips for towing to get you to your recreation destination problem-free.

First, consult your owner's manual for your safe towing capacity, and don't forget maximum loaded weight, tongue weight, and your car or truck's tow rating. Make sure your brakes, turn signals, and tail lights are in sync between your vehicle and the trailer or boat. You will also want to make sure that the trailer weight is balanced, and the tires are the same size and type of construction and match your owner's manual specifications.

We're glad to help you with your towing setup and safety at Car City Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM before you start out on that weekend trip or summer vacation. Stop by our service department in St. Joseph, and we will work with your vehicle and trailer to make sure your hitch is secure and towing is safe.
