When you get ready for opening fishing weekend, you will want to make sure that your vehicle and trailer are in the best condition possible. If you are not sure, you can always bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you. Also always be aware of anything that might be out of the norm for your vehicle. This will help you to be aware of any issues or problems that might be starting for your vehicle. If you ignore the warning signs, it can end up costing you more in the long run for your vehicle.
Checking Each Tire
The tires will need to be inspected on a regular basis. This should include the air of the tire, tread wear, and overall condition of each tire. Without checking the tires, you may not notice when an issue is starting to happen to them. The last thing you will want is to have your vehicle breakdown when you are on the side of the road. Not only is this an inconvenience, but it can also be dangerous in heavy traffic. Always check the air pressure in the tires, and bring the vehicle in if a tire is low, often. This way if there is a puncture or nail, the tire can be replaced.
Remember to check the Tread Wear
You will also want to check the tread wear on your tires. If you are unsure of how the tread condition is, all you need is a penny. Place the penny upside down in the groove of the tread. If you are able to see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread has worn down. Tread is needed to help your vehicle have the best traction and grip on the road as possible. When the tread is poor, you will notice the vehicle sliding and even poor handling.
