Trailer tyres should be inspected before each journey for signs of wear and to check the tyre pressures. Trailer tyres typically have a lifespan of apx 3-5 years, depending on usage and conditions. Replace them sooner if you notice significant tread wear or signs of cracking.

Make sure your plug is inserted correctly use terminal spray to clean if necessary. Check to see if the wiring is damaged. Check to see if the trailer bulbs are blown. If all looks good so far check your vehicle fuses. If you can’t identify the issue, call for assistance to ensure proper functioning of lights, which is crucial for road safety.

Regularly clean your trailer, especially after exposure to saltwater or corrosive substances. Apply a protective coating like rust-resistant paint or wax to the metal. If galvanised metal is exposed to saltwater, such as in marine environments, rinse it thoroughly with fresh water to remove salt residue. Salt can accelerate corrosion if left unchecked. Keep galvanized metal away from contact with corrosive materials, such as acids and harsh chemicals. These can accelerate the corrosion process and compromise the protective layer. If you notice any rust spots, address them promptly. Use a wire brush to remove the rust, and then apply a zinc-rich primer or galvanized metal paint to protect the area. If possible keep the trailer stored in a dry place when not in use.

Its recommended every 6000miles or 12 months but If your trailer covers significant distances regularly ie used commercially, it may experience more wear and tear on components like tyres, bearings, and brakes. Regular inspections become crucial to catch potential issues early. If the trailer is frequently exposed to harsh environmental conditions, such as saltwater (marine environments) or corrosive substances, more frequent maintenance may be necessary to prevent corrosion and other issues. Always refer to the trailer manufacturer’s guidelines for recommended service intervals and specific maintenance tasks. If you’re uncertain call us we have 1 to 12 month maintenance packages available.

Trailer snaking can be caused by strong cross winds or by uneven weight distribution, improper loading, issues with the suspension or tyres.  Always ensure your trailer is properly loaded, with heavier items low and towards the front. Check your load on regular intervals especially on long journeys. Make sure your trailer is well maintained and consider fitting an anti snake devise.
