2. Inspect Your Suspension
Speaking of the suspension, during trailer maintenance you’ll want to be sure to visually inspect it for signs of irregular wear, tires or heat cracks in the air springs. Every time you check, there shouldn’t be anything touching the suspension and the air springs should have the proper air pressure.
Checking your ride-height is important as well, because it can interfere with safety when going under overpasses if it’s too high, but it can damage your suspension bumpers if it’s too low.
3. Refresh Lubricant
Make sure you’re refreshing your lubricant regularly. Hopefully you’ve already found the perfect grease for your system, now you just need to keep replacing the grease regularly. Grease doesn’t usually wear out, but it does collect debris which makes it less effective overtime. Every time you add new grease, be sure you completely purge the old grease from the system.
4: Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance
The fourth key to trailer maintenance is: doing it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so be vigilant in looking for little symptoms which can lead to big damage. If a part on your trailer slides, goes up and down or moves at all, it needs to be inspected on a regular basis and properly cared for.
