Allen Photographic Guides No 26: Trailer Maintenance By John Henderson



This book could save you from a serious road accident. Too many horse trailer owners think their trailers are so simple that they need no maintenance but anything with moving parts needs regular care, and the safety of you, your horses and other road users depends on it.

This guide uses clear, detailed, step-by-step photos to take you through all you need to know to ensure your trailer is safe and roadworthy, from the checks you should make every trip, through simple periodic maintenance tasks every owner can do to service items like greasing wheel bearings and changing brake shoes.

You may think the more technical jobs are beyond your abilities but this book will help you make the right decision about what tasks you can do yourself and which ones you choose to leave to a trailer specialist.
