Simple Towing Guide to Ensure a Safe Journey

The entire crew at Currie Motors Ford of Valpo wanted to share some simple towing safety tips to make certain your journey is as safe as possible.

  • Adjust the side mirrors on your vehicle out as far as you can to see all around both sides of the trailer. If needed, apply small stick-on blind-spot mirrors to increase your visibility.
  • Take a tire gauge now and check the trailer tires air pressure, then again in an hour to make sure they are holding the air and weight.
  • Once the vehicle is on the trailer, take a few looks to see if the weight is evenly distributed. By doing so now, you will eliminate the chance of a heavy side causing the trailer to flip on a turn.
  • Once the trailer is connected, go back and make sure all the turn signals, brake lights, and parking lights are working as they should.

Have your vehicle checked in our service center at Currie Motors Ford of Valpo before attempting to pull heavy loads.
