At Dixie Trailer Supply, we aim to prevent problems before they happen. We use the highest quality parts for servicing and repairs. Whatever you need, we have the experiences to do it right.
Whether they are hydraulic, disc or electric, the brakes need to be inspected regularly and serviced at least once or twice a year, depending on the trailer usage rate. Check for corrosion, rust, stuck parts, and overall functionality. Additionally, make sure the brake fluid is always up to the correct level and replace it at least once or twice a year.
Typical Average Service Frequency: Inspect every trip, service once a year
Check the air pressure in your tires before every trip and fill when necessary. If you use the trailer frequently, use a quarter or tread gauge to check the tread, as well. If your trips are more spread out and you put fewer miles on your trailer, you can inspect the tread less often. Make sure the valve stems are in good condition, as well.
Dixie Trailer Supply has the Wheel Bearing Repair experience to help keep your vehicle running smoothly. Bearings rust quickly, causing friction and heat when towing. When submerged at the ramp, hot rotors cool rapidly, drawing water in, hastening the demise of bearings.
Trailer lights require just as much attention, if not more, than the mechanical parts of a trailer. Always check your lights before every trip, and when one dies, replace the pair.
