It’s recommended to perform a safety inspection of your tow package if moving requires towing a trailer of cargo behind you. The first item is to verify your vehicle’s manufacturer’s specifications for allowable tow and tongue weight. You can take a look at the RAM 2500 towing capacity for reference. After you’ve concluded that your automobile, the hitch, and the trailer are compatible, move on to other safety considerations.
Examine the trailer itself to establish that it’s road worthy. From there, run through the lighting system. This may require someone’s assistance to check the brake and tail lights as well as the turn signals. An added feature you might want to consider is a tow mirror package. They improve visibility and the overall driving experience.
