Towing Safety Tips for Your Chevrolet or GMC Truck

Your Chevrolet or GMC pickup truck can handle a lot of tough work. While you’re putting your vehicle to the test, it’s also important that you’re operating it properly and carefully. That’s especially true when you’re trailering, which can be dangerous and damaging if done incorrectly. To make sure you’re using your truck correctly around Ruston, Louisiana, here are three must-know towing safety tips.

Inspect your trailer’s condition

Do you give your trailer the same attentiveness that you give your pickup truck? When’s the last time you looked for signs of rust underneath or checked the tires’ tread depth? Every time you plan to hitch up your trailer, RV, or camper, you need to perform rigorous pre- and post-travel inspections. Look for any unusual or alarming signs, and have those fixed before hitting the road.

Know your truck’s limits

Your truck can only handle so much strain, so it’s important you don’t push it past its limits and permanently damage it. Check the vehicle’s owner’s manual or door jamb info plaque for that information. You can also calculate that number by subtracting the truck’s curb weight from the Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating.

Watch your surroundings

Having a trailer in tow essentially doubles or sometimes even triples the length of your vehicle, so you have to be extra attentive to what’s in your vicinity. Always use your mirrors and make sure you leave plenty of space when changing lanes or turning.

New GM models have tools that can help you better monitor your surroundings, such as the best-in-class camera technology on the Chevrolet Silverado, using 8 available cameras that give you up to 15 unique views.

3 Essential New Year’s Resolutions for Your Chevrolet Vehicle in 2021

The past year has been a tough one for Ruston, Louisiana, but our community has remained strong and connected through this challenging time. Now that 2021 is almost here, it’s time to commit to making it a better year than 2020 was, both for yourself and for your car.

Start 2021 off right by making these New Year’s resolutions for your vehicle so it has a healthy, happy year too!

Schedule seasonal oil changes

Engine oil flushes and filter changes are vital for your vehicle’s health. This year, start scheduling oil changes every season as part of your car’s regular maintenance schedule. Don’t delay those oil changes for longer than the Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC technicians recommend.

Monitor and rotate the tires

It’s easy to neglect your car’s tires until a flat or puncture occurs. You can prevent those dangerous situations by checking the tread depth and air pressure every week. If either look low, bring your car in for service.

And when you’re having the engine oil changed, get the tires rotated too. That will also help slow their deterioration.

Never drive with depleted fluids

Your car has many fluids it uses to operate properly, and all those liquids should be filled up to their “fill” lines. This includes the wiper fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, and power steering fluid. Look under the hood every month and refill them as needed.

It’s important that you follow a regular maintenance schedule for your car every year. That’s the best way to ensure your vehicle operates properly for years to come. Performing these three tasks is the best way to jump-start that maintenance, so contact Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC to schedule your first auto checkup of 2021.
