Tips for safe towing
The weight loading of the trailer must not exceed the payload, which gives us the factory.
We load our vehicle with the weight for the axle and not forward or back, for better vehicle stability.
The burden should be shared so the hitch, so (if a trailer) may not exceed the listed pounds.
Firmly secured the cargo in order to avoid losses and move it, sometimes with dangerous consequences.
Towing can make even a 20% increase in fuel consumption.
When towing on uneven ground, the trailer weight should be reduced 50% and we recommend that the speed is proportional to the condition of the road (not to exceed 20 kilometers per hour).
Check before each electrical path of the trailer.
The good visibility backwards is essential for a safe journey. In the first things you should watch the driver to adjust the specific case of mirrors mounted on the front wings of the car, or on the existing mirrors.
Reverse - not to become entangled
In the movement to reverse a trailer, although things are difficult, at least different and requires some practice. H shift requires inverted manipulation of the steering wheel. So go to the trailer left the wheel must turn right and vice versa. A practical easy solution to this motion is otherwise the driver keeps the wheel from below, so the left and right reversed and manipulations correspond to the direction we want to follow the trailer. But not as hard as you would at least seem to start!

Driving trailer needs attention and knowledge, especially as the growing weight of the trailer. Some companies have developed electronic systems that work with the ESP and intervene if the trailer lost its stability. Please note that these systems operate with sensors in the car no matter the trailer. Activated when placed in the socket hitch plug, and even if it does not, the system will work great danger. Finally, the market will find stampilizater, whose purpose is to stabilize the trailer vehicle.
