Common Signs of Issues with Strick Trailers
Despite their superior build quality, Strick Trailers, like all equipment, require regular maintenance. Watch out for these common signs of issues:
- Excessive Tire Wear: Uneven or excessive tire wear could indicate suspension problems, misalignment, or issues with tire pressure systems.
- Air Leaks in Brake System: If you notice slow air pressure build-up or hear air leaking, this might indicate a problem with the brake system.
- Door Latch and Security System Issues: If the patented Verti-Latch™ or Cyc-lok® systems are not functioning correctly, this can compromise the security of your cargo.
- Structural Damage: Regularly inspect the trailer for any signs of corrosion, cracks, or other structural damages.
