Finally, it’s Spring and if Mother Nature will cooperate, the warm weather will be here to stay. Since it’s not quite time to head out on the water in the open breeze, take time now to get your boat trailer ready for the lake.
Our first suggestion is to make sure bearings/hubs are lubricated properly. Water can often damage the grease and literally break it apart with moisture build up from exposure and humidity.
Another tip from our team is to always check the air pressure in your tires. Tires can lose air when the temperature in the air changes, or, if there is a slow leak that you may not be aware. Having the proper tire pressure will also ensure better gas mileage!
Are all the lights working properly on your trailer? It’s very important, for safety purposes, that others can see where the trailer may be stopping or turning.
Last, but certainly not least, make sure to check the bunks, this is where the water craft sits on the boat trailer, to ensure they are super secure and solid. It’s important to avoid getting these wet as damage can occur and may cost you money for replacements down the road.
