Important Safety Checklist for Towing Any Size Vehicle

Regardless the size of the vehicle that you will be towing, it is important to work through a safety checklist to ensure you don't have any incidents on the road that could have been avoided.

Always check that the weight of the towed vehicle is evenly distributed. Too much weight on one side could be problematic around curves. Have someone sit inside your vehicle and depress the brake pedal so you can make certain all the lighting is connected the right way. Check the flashers too and directional lights.

Once the mirrors have been adjusted, make sure you can safely see around the entire vehicle. If not, they sell mirrors that can be applied over your current mirrors that will allow you to see what is in those blind spots easily.
