FUEL & EXHAUST SYSTEMS
Look for unsecured mounting, leaks, contact with electrical wiring or brake lines and hoses, and excessive carbon deposits around seams and clamps.
Inspect for cracks, bends, sagging, loose fasteners, or any defect that may lead to the collapse of the frame.
Check all required lamps for required color, operation, mounting and visibility.
Examine both sides of the trailer to ensure cargo is protected from shifting or falling.
Make sure your steering lash is within the allowable lash limits.
Check for misaligned, shifted, cracked or missing springs, loose shackles, missing bolts, unsecured spring hangers, and cracked or loose U-bolts.
TIRES, WHEELS, RIMS AND HUBS
Check tires for proper inflation and tread wear, inspect wheels and rims for cracks, and broken or missing lugs, and examine the hubs for lubricant leaks, proper alignment, and damaged, worn or missing parts.
