Typical Trailer Repairs
Even though your trailer has no motor and is “along for the ride,” there’s still a lot that can go wrong, impeding your ability to conduct business and take care of customers. Visibly obvious elements such as sheet metal siding, wing flaps, curtains, and doors need to be in good repair to protect your load adequately. However, plenty of more mechanically related issues can also arise, compromising safety, structural integrity, and your trailer’s ability to function properly. For example, tires should be monitored and replaced to minimize the chance of catastrophic failure. Also, trailer brakes will need periodic repairs such as pad or drum replacement and occasional pneumatic work like air hose or brake hand valve restoration. The rolling gear and suspension sometimes need attention, too. The suspension valve and cushion suspension are specific service points. Depending upon the nature of your work, your trailer(s) may also have additional features that need repairs. These include components such as lift gates and refrigeration units. Finally, all trailers need adequate lighting. Therefore, electrical components, wiring, bulbs/lamps, or sockets should be checked regularly and fixed promptly.
