Give Me a Brake!

Surge BrakeOne would think that there was a weekend push, pull or drag sale on trailers. I once checked three of them on a Friday evening and found one that was too heavy for a surge brake, one that had no brakes functioning and a third that needed brakes but was not equipped with them.

The Tug Test

Trailer TowingWe'll just hook up the trailer, and away we go. A quick check in the rearview mirror, yes, it's following us. The tug test has been passed, we're good to continue. I say this tongue in cheek, but I often think that drivers use this method to make sure their trailers are roadworthy. It takes much more than this to be sure.
