  • Be certain your vehicle maintains a level position when a loaded and/or unloaded trailer is hitched.Do not drive the vehicle if it has an abnormal nose-up or nose-down condition; check for improper tongue load,overload,worn suspension or other possible causes of either condition.
  • Always secure items in the trailer to prevent load shift while driving.
  • Keep the cargo load as low as possible in the trailer to keep the trailer center of gravity low.
  • Load the trailer so approximately 60% of the trailer load is in the front half and 40% is in the back half. Also make sure the load is balanced side to side.
  • Check your hitch, trailer tire pressure, vehicle tire pressure, trailer light operation, and trailer wheel lug nuts every time you attach a trailer to the vehicle.
  • Be certain your rearview mirrors conform to all federal, state or local regulations. If not, install any mirrors required for towing before driving the vehicle.
  • Determine the overall height of the vehicle and trailer so the required clearance is known.
