Rochester Truck Service Professionals Share 5 Trailer Maintenance Tips, Henrietta, New York

While trailers are designed to last longer than other vehicles, it’s the responsibility of the driver to ensure they maximize the life span by investing in routine truck service. Not only will this help your trailer operate more smoothly, but it can also save you a significant amount of money in repairs. DeCarolis Truck Rental, the leading service and rental center in Rochester, NY, is here to share a few tips to help you properly care for your trailer.

5 Trailer Maintenance Tips

1. Test the Brakes

Test your brakes regularly to ensure there are no signs of wear and tear. If you find any broken components, replace them right away to avoid an unsafe situation. Ask the people at DeCarolis to ensure you stay running safely. 

2. Inspect the Tires

Examine your tires for any visual damage, and inspect the tread depth to make sure they are within safety regulations. If there are any issues, you must replace the tire to prevent a blowout.

3. Look For Damaged Wires

Damaged wires are a hazard to your trailer’s electrical system. Make sure all the wires are protected and replace any that are problematic.

4. Check the Lights

The lights are also an essential component of your trailer’s electrical system. If any aren’t working properly, it is unsafe (and you could be pulled over). You can prevent this by replacing the lights as soon as they burn out.

5. Lubricating Components

Lubricating your trailer is essential to its operation, but it’s important to make sure you apply the correct type of grease. Ask the professionals at DeCarolis to do it for you.
