Before departure:
Check the tyre pressures of both car
and trailer.
Check all the exterior and signalling
lamps of the car and trailer.
Practice
manoeuvring,
especially
reversing.
Grease the towing ball hitch regu-
larly, and remove it when not towing
for a long period.
Spread the load inside the caravan
and keep within the towing weight
limits.
Always drive at moderate speeds,
changing down a gear in good time
before hill climbs or descents. Be
aware of the effect of side winds.
Braking distances are increased.
Use the brakes gently and progres-
sively. Avoid sudden braking.
If you have to park on an incline,
make sure that the parking brake is
firmly applied. Check that the tow
hitch is firmly attached and, if neces-
sary, chock the wheels of the trailer.
When towing, the fuel consumption
will increase.
