Trailer towage

Preparation for movement

In spite of the fact that any car is intended mainly for transportation of people and hand luggage, at application of the corresponding technical equipment there is a possibility to make trailer towage.
At all it is not necessary to overload the trailer over admissible value (Specifications see).

The maximum admissible values of weight of the trailer resulted in Specifications are fair only for the districts located at height no more 1000 m above sea level. Whereas increase of height of district efficiency of return of the engine gradually decreases owing to разреженности air, value of the maximum admissible workshop of car-care centre of the trailer should be reduced on 10 % on each following 1000 m of lifting, since the first.

It is not necessary to exceed also the maximum admissible vertical loading on a spherical head of the tjagovo-drawbar - watch correctness of distribution of cargo in the trailer, placing the heaviest subjects whenever possible over a bridge axis. Take care of reliability of fixing of cargo.

Do not forget to modify pressure in tyres of the trailer of the car prepared for towage, having lifted it to the value corresponding to the maximum loadings. Check up also pressure of a rating of tyres of the trailer.

Having finished trailer loading, check up adequacy of an inclination of an optical axis of head headlights, in case of need make corresponding updating.
During performance сцепки and расцепки the lay brake of the car should be completely cocked.

Recommendations about driving

With a view of preservation of the maximum control over controllability of the car towing the trailer try to distribute in regular intervals whenever possible a cargo lump on the trailer and the car. Avoid towages of the heavy trailer by the empty car. If to avoid such situation it is not possible, do not exceed safe speed of movement.

Because course stability автосцепки with increase in speed of movement decreases, avoid unfairly fast driving, in particular at movement in adverse road or weather conditions. Try to move with the speed which is not exceeding value of 80 km/h even if it is not stipulated by the rules of traffic accepted in given region.

Beforehand begin braking! If the trailer is equipped by inertial brake system, braking is better for making in two stages and very smoothly that will help to avoid the jerks connected with blocking of wheels of the trailer.

At movement under a bias beforehand include a hill-climbing gear, to the full using braking by the engine.

Necessity of fulfilment of a steep slope forces to include a hill-climbing gear in hot weather and as much as possible to raise engine turns. Moving to such mode, watch closely indications of a measuring instrument of temperature of a cooling liquid. If the arrow of the index comes into a red range of a scale of a measuring instrument, the car it is necessary to stop and allow to the engine to cool down within several minutes on single turns. Remember that speed of rotation of the fan of system of cooling does not depend in any way on frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft, therefore excessive fall of transfer with increase of turns of the engine will result to only fast overheat of the last.

At frequent use of a vehicle for trailer towage try to make procedures of routine maintenance of the car slightly more often, than it is stipulated by the Schedule (Routine maintenance see the Head).
