Tips for Proper Towing

One of the perks of having a truck or SUV is the ability to haul goods and tow boats, trailers, and other vehicles. It's important to follow some basic tips and to do things the right way. If done improperly, you can potentially cause damage to your vehicle and whatever it is you're towing.

Always consult your owner's manual or the manufacturer's website to see what the maximum towing capacity is for your specific vehicle. Do a thorough, basic inspection of your vehicle before heavy towing. Install any necessary wiring for rear signals when towing a trailer. Only use a towing hitch that is designed for your vehicle.
