Spring Checklist

Spring Checklist, Is Your Trailer Ready?

Does your trailer pass the spring checklist? It’s time to get your trailer ready for warmer weather! The towing pros at Croft Trailer Supply have a few tips on what to check before taking your trailer out of storage and getting back on the road.

Your Spring Checklist

  1. Have the bearings serviced. This requires a repack, new grease, a new bearing and race. Check your bearings before returning your trailer to regular use, and be sure to replace the bearings and races during a repack every year or 5,000 miles.
  2. Check the tires. Inspect them to see if they are weather cracked after long winter months. Also check for uneven wear or any other possible damage.
  3. Check the wiring and trailer plug. Make sure everything with the wiring and plug work correctly. You can check this by plugging in your trailer and testing the brake, turn signals, and reverse lights. To make this process easier, check out our trailer test kits.
  4. Check the undercarriage. Inspect the springs, spring bushings, and hangers for wear and cracks. This kind of preventative maintenance can save your trailer from a dangerous breakdown on the road. Preventative maintenance will also save you money in the long run, saving you money on expensive repairs.
