Throttle Down Kustoms has released a new ebook, 11 Things Truckers Know About Towing, to share towing preparation tips. Summer is here and boats and trailers are ready for action, so the team at TDK put together this ebook for those new to towing and those who need a refresh after a long off-season. This guide covers the key steps and can be used as a checklist for anyone readying their truck for “severe duty” and then getting behind the wheel.
“There aren’t a lot of schools out there for folks who want to start towing a trailer,” says Jeremy Pulse, owner of Throttle Down Kustoms. “You don’t need a PhD to tow, but there is some education needed to do it right. So we wanted to share our knowledge to keeptruck owners stay safe while they’re towing.”
The guide covers three main topics:
- Getting the Truck Ready
- Getting the Trailer Ready
- Driving While Towing a Trailer
Whether someone drives a gasoline or diesel truck, this 11-page ebook covers the key points for those who tow or plan to tow.
Here are some topics from the guide:
- The 3 crucial elements for understanding your vehicle’s exact weight
