Long Tow Trailer Prep?

958 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Marsh Pirate
I'm preparing for the annual pilgrimage from SC to the Keys in May, and making sure everything is in order for the 850 mile drive. This will be year two with my Beavertail Vengeance. For the majority of the last year, the boat has sat on the trailer in the garage.

What do I need to look for or do to make the trip as seamless as possible? I've sprayed anti-seize on the lug nuts once or twice since last summer, but beyond that haven't done much maintenance. I did have it on jack stands for probably 6 months. Beyond checking tire pressure, any recommendations or best practices?

Hubs should never get too hot too touch. I lay hands on mine several times every trip. Redundancy is the key. Don’t leave home w/o it I keep a large tool box w trailer parts ( hubs lug nuts etc) , water bottles , Gojo , rags, jack ,tire plugs , mini compressor. Traveling repair shop be safe in your travels
