You should start by checking the air in the tire. One thing that you should do is to make sure that the tire has enough pressure. This is important as it is going to determine the period of time that your tire will take before they get damaged. You find that when the tire operates at wrong inflation level they will wear out very fast. At some point you may find that the tire might have some leaks and thus why you should use monitoring system to inspect the tire for the leaks.
Another tip should be checking the suspension. You should do this visually by looking for signs of irregular wear, tear or heat cracks that may be found on the springs. In one way or the other it is your duty to make sure that there is nothing that is neither touching the suspension or interfering with its functionality. You are also required to make sure that the springs also have enough and equal pressure for proper functionality. In addition, you should also make sure that the ride height is neither too high nor too low as this may interfere with safely navigating the overpasses. You find that when there is little air the trailer will ride on the suspension bumper and this may damage the suspension components.
In addition, you should also make sure that you lube it correctly. You should make sure that you apply the correct lube at the right amount as this is essential for the operation of the trailer. This is important as it will make sure that it prevents the tear and wear of some of the moving parts. You can do this by crawling under the to identify some of the parts that need to be greased.
You should also make sure that you choose the lighting system of the trailer. You should do this regularly by checking at the wires, lamps and the harness system. Another thing that you should make sure you do is to replace the grease at the connection points. The roads always have some ice that is used for melting the ice and the water spills which when they come in contact with the lighting system they cause corrosion. The last thing that you want is to be stopped by the road side because of poor lighting system yet you might be running out of time.
It is also important that you check the tractor security. This involves a close inspection of the tiedown straps, chains and ratchets. You should also look for holes, tears, cuts, snags, loose switching. Not forgetting the loose logistics from the inside.
