Horse and Livestock Trailer Maintenance

Maintenance Basics

Your horse or livestock trailer maintenance is paramount to ensure your safety and that of your animal. Even though trailers’ mechanics may not be similar to vehicles, they need to be taken care of continuously to guarantee special operations while in good shape.

Here is a comprehensive guide about the horse and livestock maintenance basics while breaking down tasks in frequency. Do you have any boggling questions regarding how best you can maintain your trailer? Swing to National Trailer Source

Location for answers.

We have an amazing customer care team that will be glad to help you learn more about the upkeep guidelines based on your trailer’s model, make, and year.

BEFORE EVERY TRIP

Before loading your animals, your trailer should be ready for the road. How will you ensure your ride is safe and smoother? Below is a maintenance checklist you must follow:

1.) Cleaning Out The Interior

You last used your horse or livestock trailer a while ago. It must have accumulated debris, dirt, and uninvited pests.

Therefore, creating time and walking through your trailer’s interiors is necessary, such as removing rodent nests and insects, sweeping the corners, and emptying the old leftover from the hay racks.

Also, ensure the watering dishes are properly cleaned and disinfected to stop harmful bacteria growth or mold. As such, you’ll offer a hospitable space for your livestock, and their health is guaranteed.

2: Test The Doors

To secure your animals during transportation, ensure your trailer’s doors are functional and tightly latch before you load your animals. Doing so will lower the occurrence of accidence and unprecedented medical expenses. While doing so, ensure that you’re going through every process to ensure you do not forget the door’s functionality.

3: Examine Your Tires

What is the condition of your trailer’s tires? Your tier’s condition is the primary safety concern. Therefore, a keen inspection of each tier focuses on worn treads, tire wall bulges, and cracks. Replace any worn-out tires before getting ready for the road. You should do this before you can think of starting the trail.

In addition, using the manufacturer’s recommended pressure found on a small badge on the trailer’s tongue, ensure the pressure for each tier is adequately filled up, including your spare. Again, don’t assume that the tires are okay without giving a check.

4: Check Your Lights

Here you need another person’s help to verify that all your barking lights and turn signals are still functional. Take note that you should taste each separately while attending to burnt-out bulbs. Ensure you make a replacement or have a replacement with you to keep everything in place.

Step 5: Ensure All Is Connected

The type of your trailer’s hitch determines the connection required. For instance, you will connect the ball or hitch or attach the gooseneck to your truck bed. Regardless of your way of connecting, verify that the connections are firm with the required pins before you get to the road. Doing so guarantees your safety while you’re on the go.

 

 

AFTER EVERY TRIP

It is necessary to be ready for your next trip. By so doing, ensure that you check on the following trailer maintenance tasks after each trip to ensure it is ready for its next mission.

1: Clean out Your Trailer

Thoroughly clean out your trailer’s interior after unloading your animals. Get rid of debris, water, and food remains, wipe down the bars and windows, and sweep out your trailer. Do this thoroughly and slowly to ensure you reach into closed areas to eliminate the debris.

 

2: Wash the floor

Before washing down the flooring, ensure you have the right cleaner based on your floor type to avoid rotting wood floors and maintain the pristine aluminum floor. Therefore, use water and the right cleaner thoroughly wash down the flooring.

3: Wash the exterior

During winter, salt and chemicals build up on the trailer’s exterior. It is significant to clean its exterior to prevent further damage to the frame.

4: Lubricate hinges, couplers, and ramps

It is paramount to use the recommended lubricant by the manufacturer, depending on your trailer’s specific materials. Lubricate these parts as required.

Step 5: Keep it out of the elements

Protecting your trailer from harsh elements like rain, snow, and the sun is appropriate by keeping it in a garage, barn, or beneath carport. Alternatively, you can invest in a good trailer cover to prevent your trailer’s body damage.

 

6: Please keep track of the mileage

Due to the absence of a built-in odometer in trailers, it is arduous to know how long it has been since your previous replacement of essential parts like brakes, tires, etc. Hence, keeping your trailer’s mileage track will ensure you stick to the normal maintenance levels.

 

ONGOING MAINTENANCE AS REQUIRED

Aside from the regular maintenance tasks done before and after the trip, there are intensive maintenance requirements you need to attend to. The following list will be a lifesaver to keep your trailer from failing while on the road.

2: Check For Any Roof Leaks

With time, the roof may develop leaks around the fans and vents. Also, check for any cracks or peels on the roof. These issues are correctable, thus offering a long lifespan to your trailer. You can even sprinkle water on the roof to know if there is any leakage.

3: Schedule A Professional Inspection

Take your trailer for inspection annually to ensure proper greasing of your trailer’s wheel bearing, tightening of lug nuts to spec, and analyze if there are any underlying issues.

CONCLUSION

Overall, your trailer needs basic maintenance and further intensive maintenance tasks to ensure your trailers have a long lifespan. Remember, “Only taking action will create change in your life. If you do nothing different tomorrow than you did today, nothing will change. It takes courage to make a change in one’s life, and also persistence and perseverance.”
