If you have caravan that is attached to your vehicle always make sure that the connector is not rusty. All the moving portions of a connector should move easily without a hitch and if necessary use oil or something to make it move easily. All the bolts in the connectors should work properly because when you are towing a caravan you do not want a faulty bolt to disengage in the middle of your trip.
- Braking System
Another important aspect of caravan maintenance is the capacity of braking required. Always ensure that the braking system in the caravan is functional and not failing. For example you are travelling at a steep and towing a caravan with you, your vehicle has stopped but your caravan is dragging you because the braking system is not working properly.
- Towing tool
The towing tool meaning the chain that will be attached to your vehicle should be rust free and if it has any rust kindly replace the chain. That chain is your backup safety feature when all else is failing.
