Common Signs of Issues with Vanguard Trailers

Even the most robust trailers may experience wear and tear over time. It is essential to recognize common signs of issues with Vanguard trailers to address them promptly:

  • Tire Problems: Uneven tire wear or continuous deflation might indicate alignment or suspension issues.
  • Brake Issues: If you notice screeching sounds, vibrations, or decreased stopping performance, it could be a sign of brake problems.
  • Structural Damage: Dents, cracks, or rust on the trailer's body or frame require immediate attention as they might compromise the structural integrity.
  • Electrical Malfunctions: Flickering lights or non-functioning electrical systems are common symptoms of electrical issues.
  • Refrigeration Unit Problems: An inability to maintain temperature or unusual noises from the refrigeration unit can indicate a malfunction for refrigerated trailers.
