Towing Safely

If you have a truck or an SUV, there may come a time when you want to tow a boat or a trailer. It is important that you follow some important steps so that you tow safely and don't have any problems with the trailer or your vehicle.

Before you tow, know your vehicle's towing capacity. Towing too heavy a load can damage your vehicle. Make sure that the load in the trailer is evenly distributed. If there is uneven weight, it might cause the trailer to sway and tip. Always verify that the lights on the trailer are working before you set off for your destination. Check the tires and the tire pressure on both your vehicle and the trailer being towed.

If you have towing questions, or you need service for your vehicle, contact BMW of Salem located in Salem, OR. The service center performs a vast array of repair and maintenance services.
