Pulling a Trailer

Important points for pulling a trailer:
• There are many different laws, including speed limit restrictions, having to do with trailering.

Make sure the rig will be legal, not only where you live but also where you will be driving.

A good source for this information can be state or provincial police.
• Consider using a sway control.

See “Hitches” under Towing Equipment on page 9‑100.
• Do not tow a trailer at all during the first 800 km (500 miles) the new vehicle is driven. The engine, axle, or other parts could be damaged.
• During the first 800 km (500 miles) that a trailer is towed, do not drive over 80 km/h (50 mph) and do not make starts at full throttle. This helps the engine and other parts of the vehicle wear in at the heavier loads.
• Vehicles can tow in D (Drive).

Shift the transmission to a lower gear if the transmission shifts too often under heavy loads and/ or hilly conditions.

Important considerations that have to do with weight:
• Weight of the trailer
• Weight of the trailer tongue
• Weight on the vehicle's tires
• Weight of the trailering combination
