Towing Tips - Best Ways To Turn While Towing
ELIZABETH CITY, NC- As the seasons begin to change and we get closer to the spring and summer months, we also begin to tow more behind our Chevy Silverado 1500. Towing anything behind your truck can be a daunting task in itself, but turning while towing can be intimidating too. So, check out these Towing Tips for the Best Ways To Turn While Towing from your Chevrolet Silverado Dealer to make your journey stress free!
First, when towing anything behind your Chevy Silverado, you'll want to make sure that your signals and lights are working properly by connecting the electrical components of your trailer to your Silverado through the wiring harness. To make things easy, Chevy Silverado's Heavy Duty Trailing Package includes a 7-pin wiring harness.
When you're ready to execute a turn while towing, make sure you plan early since turning with a trailer can be more difficult than you may think. Alert other drivers early with your turn signals that you plan to turn so they can give you time and space. You can observe other drivers and your trailer if the mirrors on your Chevy Silverado are properly adjusted. Most importantly, reduce your speed earlier than you would if you weren't towing anything since it will take longer to slow down. Turn at a wide angle and make sure to give yourself more room than you think you need since the turning radius of a trailer is much smaller than of just the Silverado. The wider the angle the better.
It sounds easy, but keep these Towing Tips for the Best Ways To Turn While Towing in mind next time your trailer is hooked up to keep your load safe.
