Preparation and Safety Checks Vital Before Towing

Before towing anything, look up your vehicle’s towing capacity in its owner’s manual. You’ll also need to get a trailer hitch rated for the weight that you’re towing. Exceeding these limits increases your risk for breakdowns and accidents.

Before hitting the road, make sure that your brake lights and turn signals are connected to the tow vehicle's lights and responding correctly. Tire safety checks include securing the lug nuts and setting the tire pressure appropriately. To improve visibility when pulling large trailers, attach towing mirrors to your vehicle. It’s also a good idea to practice towing if you haven’t done it before.
