Spring Safety Tips
March 10, 2017
the frigid months of winter behind us, it’s time to start thinking about spring maintenance. Trucks take a beating during harsh winter weather. Here are the top 4 spring safety tips for your truck.
Get a brake check.
Brakes can experience significant wear and tear during the winter and must be inspected as soon as possible. A Kenworth Peterbilt professional technician can adjust your brakes if necessary, check for corroded parts and components, and inspect for air leaks. Make a brake check your top priority this spring.
Get your batteries tested.
Severe winter weather can shorten the lifespan of your truck’s batteries. Get your batteries load-tested by a technician as soon as possible to determine if they need to be replaced. They can also check your alternator for any signs of malfunction.
Have your lights examined.
Your truck’s lights could be on the verge of burning out after enduring so many long winter nights. If your lights have dimmed, have them tested to see if the bulbs need to be replaced and to confirm that all electrical wiring is in proper condition.
Inspect your windshield.
Windshields take a pounding during the winter. Have a tech inspect for any cracks or chips that may have been caused by heavy rain, hail, or snow.
