Whether you are planning to go on vacation with an RV trailer, taking a boat out or just have to haul a trailer to the dump, be prepared. Know what your vehicle is capable of towing and that it is properly equipped for what you plan to do. Consider this,¬†exceeding capacity can cause premature failure of brakes, axle bearings, transmission and engine due to overheating. Don’t just think about yourself, not having proper trailer brakes (when needed) can impair your ability to stop and could cause an accident.
