This form of movement usually involves carrying of heavy luggage or goods. Depending on how heavy the luggage or goods are, you may want to settle for hiring people to haul the luggage, or an alternative and better option may be to hire a trailer. For those who transporting large and heavy goods and luggage have become a business or way of life, you want to consider purchasing. However, it is advisable to be careful with North Carolina Trailer Sales, and stay focused when making your choice of a trailer as this goes a long way to determining the experience you will get when moving your goods or luggage.

 

Types of trailers

From the name 'open', it is obvious that this trailer basically features a platform that is designed with just wheels and side rails, which you can attach to your vehicle.  This type of trailer also has its advantages, as it is perfect for those with very heavy and large goods to convey to desired destination. However, since they are short f an enclosure, the kind of goods to carry are those that are not affected the weather conditions like rainfall and the rest.

The smoother the suspension, the more reliable it is; and this in turn implies that it will produce less shock on your cargo and tow vehicle. Also, a smoother suspension makes for a high performing suspension. This is particularly essential for regular towing of heavy and delicate loads.

 

Trailer construction

The construction of a trailer goes a long way in determining how durable the trailer will be. And not just that, but also says a lot about  how your transportation will end up. Attention should be given to the frame of a trailer as it is responsible for supporting the trailer. As such, it should be very strong and sturdy. The common types of framework construct you can find are the C-chanel, L-shaped, tabular steel and I-beam. Amongst these options, the C-channel are the strongest. Basically, the strength of the trailer is determined by how much metal components it is made of. Also, look out for construction features that support the safety and security of your goods or cargo.

Importance of Knowing the Trailer Ball Sizes

                         Whether you are planning to go out for camping or moving from one city to another, having a trailer provides a lot of conveniences. If you are planning to buy a trailer or already have one then do not make one of the most common mistakes that people make over and over again – not using the right trailer hitch ball.

So, before we tell you why trailer ball sizes are important, let’s start with the basics.

Using the Right Hitch Ball

On the hitch ball mount, there is a bolted trailer ball that acts as a connection point of a trailer’s coupler. The hitch ball is extremely important because it pivots the trailer and provides a smooth turning while you are towing. For your towing system, it is imperative for you to comprehend that the hitch ball has to be properly rated and your trailer’s lowest-rated item has to be equal to the maximum weight rating of the system. An upgrade of your hitching system to a higher rating than the maximum is not possible.

Things to Consider While Choosing the Right Hitch Ball

The Hitch Ball Diameter: An undersized ball enables the trailer to bounce loose and that is why the diameter of a hitch ball has to be same as the diameter of the trailer coupler.

The Shank Length: It needs to be long enough so that when the hitch ball is installed, two threads are visible and the nut is fully tightened.

The Shank Diameter: The selected ball mount’s hole diameter has to be same as the shank’s diameter of the hitch ball.

 

Know the Right Trailer Ball Sizes

To meet your towing needs, trailer hitch balls come in different weight capacities, shank diameters and lengths, and ball diameters. In order to select the right hitch ball, there are few things that you must need to know:

Ball Capacity and Diameter

With most trailers, you will find that hitch ball’s maximum towing capacity, diameter, frame or coupler is listed. For the purpose of towing a trailer, any hitch ball to be used must have the same maximum capacity and diameter as the one that is listed (it also can be greater than that). The diameters of most commonly used hitch balls is 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16".

Dimensions of Hitch-Ball Shank

It is important that the trailer hitch ball must fit your trailer and ball mount as well – there is a hole in ball mount that receives the ball. To fit diverse ball mounts, the hitch balls come in a variety of shank diameters and lengths. The common diameters of ball mounts are 3/4", 1", and 1-1/4", however, you can find balls in other sizes as well. After knowing the diameter (try to measure the precise one) of the mounting hole, the ball shank diameter can be chosen of the same size as well.

Ball Diameter Specifics

Hitch Ball Diameter

Specifications

 

1-7/8"

 

  • Its shank diameter is 3/4" and 1"
  • Its capacity is up to 2,000 lbs.

 

2"

 

  • Its shank diameter is 3/4" and 1" and 1-1/4"
  • Its capacity is about 3,500 lbs. to 8,000 lbs.

 

 

 

2-5/16"

  • Its shank diameter is 1" and 1-1/4"
  • Its capacity is about 6,000 lbs. to 40,000 lbs.

 

 

All in all, it is fair to say that you need to have some knowledge of trailer hitch ball sizes. It is important because the trailer coupler size and ball size have to match each other while the weight rating has to sufficient. It is best to do some search of your own or consult an expert. Talking about experts in the field, you can always ask North Carolina Trailer Sales if you have any questions related to trailers.

Boat Trailer Maintenance

There are about 7 million Americans with boat trailers and it's possible you've seen a few parked by the roadside because of trailer problems. People with boat trailers hardly pay attention to the foundations of their boats especially when it works just fine but this isn't the best way to enjoy the lifespan of the boat. With regular and scheduled maintenance, you can bank on your boat trailer without fear of it developing faults. Here are the major reasons trailers break down:

  •   Flat Tires
  •   Wheel Bearing Failures
  •   Axle Problems
  •   Suspension Problems
  •   Tongue/Coupling Trouble

Tires

Boat trailers have problems primarily due to under inflation. The fact that the tire won't say like a car tire when under inflated compounds this problem. You have to check your tire pressure on a regular basis with a tire gauge to be sure it's in good condition. Tires should also be replaced within 3-5 years of use even if they appear to be in good condition. Check your trailer tires before and after use.

Wheel Bearing Maintenance

The fact that boat trailer wheels are often immersed in corrosive salt water makes their maintenance crucial. Use spring loaded hub to constantly lubricate the wheel bearings. Even if it only contact fresh water, you still need this lubricant to extend the lifespan of the wheel. Those trailers that don't get immersed in water are also subject to corrosion and need lubrication.

Axle, suspension, and tongue

When you're done with the maintenance mentioned in previous points, there's still s lot more to do. There's more to boat trailer maintenance than visual corrosion as is evident in cases where there are no corrosion but the axle or suspension have coupling problems.

 Tips For Boat Trailer Maintenance

  1. Check and lubricate your boat trailer’s wheel bearings to ensure there are no complications with your wheel bearings when in transit.
  2. Re-tension the trailers wheel nuts. It is not only dangerous to drive around with loose nuts, it can lead to serious damage on the boat trailer.
  3.  Inspect your trailer for possible cracks or rusted areas which may eventually become brittle. Do this particularly at those times when you just take your boat out of water. Clean your trailer after each use to prevent corrosion.
  4. Check the boat trailer rollers, split fins and brackets. Your rollers should spin freely and be clean of any product pot grease that could be stuck between the spindles and the rollers.
  5. Ensure the trailer winch is functional at full working condition. Verify the condition of your winch strap and if necessary, lubricate the gears. This is highly important to prevent major damage from occurring to the boat and the person retrieving it.
  6. Inspect the boat trailers lights and lighting board to ensure that the wiring exists in full working condition. This way, other road users will be able to make out where you're going and possible collision will be prevented.

The best form of maintenance you can give to your body trailer is to be proactive. In the short and log run, it is safer and more cost effective than being reactive.
