Now that you have chosen the trailer your vehicle will be hauling come safety issues. If your trailer requires a ball for the hitch remember that there are different sizes. After verifying the right size, make sure the hitch latches on correctly over the ball. The safety chains should form an andquot;xandquot; under the hitch when installed properly. Now you need to connect the electrical plug and check it to be in good working order. Turn on the brakes, turn signals and lights. If the trailer is the open type, cover or strap in all it contains to avoid anything flying out. Another important fact to remember is never over load your trailer. Not properly distributing a load can cause swaying and even detaching of the trailer when on the road. Do not forget to adjust your mirrors so you can see what is going on behind you. Extension mirrors are available if you can not see clearly. Using the correct equipment and following a safe driving distance and speed can keep you from loosing control of your vehicle
