If your Horse trailer is to be stored for an extended period or over the winter, it is important that it be prepared properly.
- Remove the emergency breakaway battery and store inside, out of the weather. Charge the battery at least every 90 days.
- Jack up the trailer and place jack stands under the trailer frame so that the weight will be off the tires. Follow trailer manufacturer’s guidelines to lift and support the unit. Never jack up or place jack stands on the axle tube or on the equalizers.
- Lubricate mechanical moving parts, such as the hitch and suspension parts that are exposed to the weather.
