Are you towing below the load ratings?
The RV Safety and Education Foundation data indicates that 60% of all tow vehicles and 55% of all 5th wheel trailers exceed one or more weight safety ratings.
Ensure you're not the one exceeding a load rating.
The number one most-reported RV insurance claim is the result of damage from the sudden release of air from tires, otherwise known as a blowout.
An overloaded tire or underinflated tire can cause a sudden loss of air, also known as a blowout.
When towing a trailer, it’s crucial to ensure that the load is distributed evenly as possible.
You want to make sure that all necessary safety precautions have been taken to prevent an accident or a blowout.
Even a slight overload, or unequal weight distribution, can seriously restrict the vehicle’s braking and steering capabilities.
Higher fuel consumption and driver fatigue are also common side effects of traveling with an overloaded and poor-handling trailer.
Install this app and weigh your rig soon to achieve safer towing for you, your family, and all on the road.
