PREPARATION FOR USE - CONTINUED
When driving the towing vehicle and trailer, the overall length of the unit must be kept in mind when passing other
vehicles and when turning. Backing is also affected because the unit is hinged in the middle.
When turning corners, allow for the fact that the trailer wheels turn inside the turning radius of the towing vehicle.
Make right turns by driving the towing vehicle about halfway into intersection, and then cutting sharply to the
right. This will keep trailer wheels off the curb. Keep the vehicle close enough to the edge of the road to prevent
vehicles following from passing on the right.
During normal operation, stepping on the brake pedal will apply both towing vehicle and trailer brakes at the
same time. Apply brakes gradually and smoothly.
When parking for extended periods, both the towing vehicle and trailer parking brakes should be set. You cannot
use the trailer service brakes for long-term parking. The air pressure is gradually and automatically vented if they
are left applied. The service brakes will release as the air is vented.
