The 4 Key Components of Cargo Trailer Maintenance

Routine maintenance is the best way to keep your cargo trailer looking and running great. In today's post, we'll review the four basic components of cargo trailer maintenance. Take a look and keep these things in mind when considering the purchase and upkeep of a cargo trailer.

Keeping Your Trailer Clean

Many our trailers are coated with several layers of special automotive paint and sealer. Due to this special coating, it is best to use a cleaning solution designed specifically for automotive finishes. It's best to avoid using a high-powered pressure washer, as this can actually cause damage to the finish.

In most cases, hand washing is the best course of action. Use warm, soapy water and a soft clean cloth. Be sure to give your trailer a light rinse, especially if you are in an area that is affected by snow, ice or salt air and moisture. Exposure to mother nature's elements can be rough on your cargo trailer's exterior finish.

While you're focusing on cleaning, don't forget to give these areas attention:

  • Lights
  • Fenders
  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Exterior hardware 

After rinsing, allow your trailer to air dry or towel dry it. If you want to give your trailer's exterior an extra boost of longevity, consider adding a coat of wax. Not only will this help protect your trailer, it'll make it look great!

Repairs and Replacements

Be sure to regularly inspect your trailer for any normal (or abnormal) wear and tear. Things to watch out for include rust, popping paint, cracks, etc. Thoroughly check the flooring, lights and interior walls and ceiling for signs of wear. Even the highest-quality trailers can be subject to wear and tear, especially if it is located in an area with harsh weather conditions.

If your trailer model has doors and windows, be sure to check the integrity of seals and gaskets. Once these become worn out, moisture can seep into your trailer and damage the structure, as well as your cargo.

Protecting Your Trailer's Joints and Axles

Your trailer's joints and axles help keep the ride smooth, so make sure they stay well-lubricated. Once enough dirt and grime accumulates, the lubrication can begin to wear down, causing friction and possible breakdown.

These areas need extra special attention:

  • winch
  • ball hitch
  • springs
  • tongue jack
  • wheel bearings

Air Pressure and Tire Integrity

Are you checking the air pressure of your trailer's tires regularly?

The manual that came with your trailer includes details regarding the suggested pounds per square inch (psi) of inflation. This is a very important part of trailer maintenance, especially if your trailer sits for long periods of time. During periods of infrequent use, tires will naturally lose some of their air on their own. Driving with low air is dangerous and can cause a blowout!

Don't forget to check your tire treads as well. If they start looking worn out, don't put off replacing them. Check your spare tire, too while you're at it -- you never know when or if you might need it.
