Hooking up a trailer to a vehicle correctly is a very important! Incorrect hitching can lead to serious damage to your vehicle and the trailer. It also poses a risk to other vehicles on the road, should you lose the trailer while driving.
However it is actually a very easy process, just follow these steps. If at any stage you feel uncomfortable or want to make sure you have it right please feel free to give as a call.
1. Raise your trailer tongue ball socket or coupler to a height to clear the ball.
2. Line up the center of your vehicle with the center of your trailer.
• Use a jack attached to the tongue. Be sure to jack up enough so you have enough clearance so you do not hit the trailer.
3. Stop the vehicle once the tongue coupler is over the ball.
• Put the vehicle in park.
• Turn off the engine.
• Set the emergency brake.
4. Lower the tongue coupler socket onto the trailer hitch ball until the full weight of the trailer is on the ball.
5. Close the coupler clamp securing the ball in the coupler.
6. Lock the coupler on the ball using a hitch pin or hitch coupler lock.
7. Run the safety chains under the tongue so they cross one another. This keeps the trailer tongue from hitting the ground if it accidentally comes loose from the hitch while moving.
8. Plug in the electrical connections for the trailer lights and, if applicable, plug in the electrical brake on the trailer to the tow vehicle.
9. You should check to make sure the hitch ball and coupler are firmly attached. Use the tongue jack to rise on the tongue to make sure the tongue coupler does not come off the ball.
10. Retract the tongue jack extension and swinging it up and out of the way, securing or removing it so it will not fall down while moving.
11. Pull your tow vehicle forward a few feet.
12. Stop the vehicle, put it in park, set the emergency brake, and turn on the vehicle lights.
13. Check and make sure the lights and the stoplights are working on the trailer and nothing has worked loose at the hitch.
