Properly Connecting a Trailer Before Towing

Hooking up a trailer is a relatively straightforward procedure, but you still need to follow a checklist. Overlooking a single pin or safety chain could result in an accident. Here are a few basic pointers that will help you safely connect your vehicle to a trailer.

Both the trailer and vehicle should be on flat ground with wheel chocks behind half of the tires. You can then lock in the hitch and attach the wiring harness. Most modern trailers also have safety chains that must be attached to posts near the hitch. The final step in this process is checking all of the lights and tires.
