Winter Tips: Caring For Your Midsota Utility Trailer

With winter comes added responsibilities for taking care of a utility trailer. At Midsota Manufacturing, we want to make sure you have the best information possible to get you through the winter. Check out our winter care tips below for your Midsota utility trailer!

1. Winterize Your Tires

Winter in Minnesota, or any northern area, is tough on tires. Black ice, slush, snow and hail all cause slippery road conditions and can reduce the effectiveness of or even damage tires. That’s why it’s important to inspect your utility trailer tires regularly.

2. Clean Trailer Thoroughly & Often

Moisture, cold weather, debris, snow and salt can all cause damage to your trailer over time, and may possibly compromise performance. The best way to avoid problems is to clean your trailer thoroughly and often, especially after heavy use. Don’t let contaminants settle into the utility trailer components or the lifespan of the trailer can be affected.

3. Check Brakes

Trailer brakes need to be in great working order for winter driving to be safe. If your brakes don’t work well, you won’t be able to come to a stop and that can lead to serious problems.

Make sure your self-adjusting or electric brakes are in good condition and work well before you drive. It’s a good idea to get them examined by a professional to ensure they’re in good shape.
