To keep your trailer in good running order, we would recommend regular trailer servicing – much the same way that you would your car.
Although there is no engine to service, trailers still have many essential moving parts. These would include the braking system; the coupling, the cables & rods and the brakes themselves. The wheels and bearings are contantly moving too so need regular checks.
At a minimum, we recommend the following service intervals: –
- Every THREE MONTHS or 3000 miles (5000 km) – Commercial / industrial trailers with “intensive” usage, either by mileage towed or type of application. Also includes boat trailers that are immersed in water.
- Every SIX MONTHS or 3000 miles (5000 km) – Commercial / industrial trailers with “average” use, either by mileage towed or type of application
- Every TWELVE MONTHS or 6000 miles (10,000kms) – General private / leisure trailers. This would include horseboxes, general “tip run” trailers, camping trailers and the like.
As they are always open to the elements, the electrical systems on trailers are particularly prone to water ingress and constant vibration can lead to early bulb failure. Some owners opt to change their bulb-style lights for LED’s. These types of light are not affected by vibration and come fully manufacturer-sealed. If you are interested in changing your lights to LED, please get in touch.
