Towing has the potential to be extremely dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing, as there are a huge number of things that could go wrong. Therefore, it is vital that you follow these safety tips to minimize the risk when towing a trailer or other heavy load.

One of the most important factors in towing safely is to make sure you never attempt to exceed your vehicle’s maximum towing capacity. You also need to make sure not to exceed your trailer’s tongue weight or overall weight. Similarly, you should never exceed the weight capacity of your trailer hitch and never use a hitch that isn’t specifically made for your vehicle.

Towing can also be extremely dangerous if your vehicle’s brakes, tires, power steering or other components aren’t in good condition. Therefore, it’s also a good idea to contact our service center at Tri State Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to have your vehicle inspected to ensure it can tow safely and without issue.
