If your trailer is in need of service or repairs, don’t despair. It may just need new trailer parts, not a complete overhaul. Of course, you need to do a bit of evaluation to determine exactly what’s wrong with your equipment. Otherwise, you might wind up broken down on a road in Toronto, and no one wants to have that occur!
While you can definitely take your trailer to a place like Reinhart Trailers to figure out what’s happening, you may be a “do it yourself” type who desires to figure it out yourself. This is fine. First, you will need to evaluate the difference in performance between your trailer before its performance went awry. For instance, does it seem to be “grinding” or making noises? Examine those areas. Or is it something you can’t readily put your finger on?
Next, manually check your trailer for loose parts. If you find some that seem to be rattling and you cannot get them to snugly fit back into place, you may be able to replace them using high quality manufacturers’ trailer parts.
Finally, do a short “trial run” with your trailer after installing new trailer parts, tightening loose parts, cleaning it up, taking off any rusted areas, etc. If the trailer is still not “up to speed”, you may be well-advised to take it to a professional. That way, you can get an objective evaluation on whether you should invest in a newer model, or whether you simply need to pursue your maintenance and repairs a little further.
