trailer tongue scale hitch
Do you know your trailers tongue weight? That might be a question a lawyer will ask you if you are involved in an accident. Commercial operators using pickup trucks towing trailers aren’t the only ones that get sued in trailer accidents. Besides liability issues, an unsafe trailer can also limit your vehicles warranty if you are out of tongue weights limits specified in the owners manual. Weigh-Safe is a great tool to help you properly load your trailer to keep you and your family safe on the road.
On a bumper pull trailer, if you have too little tongue weight, the trailer can sway and be dangerous. Some trailer have their axles too close to the middle and are susceptible to sway anyway. If you have too much trailer tongue weight, your truck or SUV will squat excessively, aim your headlights to the stars and stress your trucks rear axle, brakes and suspension. You can also be too light front axle weight and wonder on the road like a station wagon from the sixties.
