For many of us Easter is the 1st trip out of the year so make sure that your wheels stay on the caravan by making sure the wheels bolts are tight to the correct torque setting laid out in your instruction booklet. Its a quick and simple check that should be done before every trip, why not do it at the same time as checking you lights?
Question. I haven’t got a torque wrench so what do I do.
Answer. Buy one.
Torque Wrenches don’t cost the earth for the occasional user I recommend the following from Machine Mart. https://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/product/details/cht141-1-2in-drive-torque-wrench at £23.98 its a worthwhile investment.
On this mornings service I was pleased when Mr A produced one he had bought after I recommended it last year.
Mr A Has a beautiful 2013 Bailey Pegasus GT65
After I completed the brake service and refitted the wheels to the correct torque (130nm) on this model Mr A double checked them with his new purchase.
Don’t forget your tyre pressures too, these are also in the handbook or on newer caravans on the data plate by the door with your weights etc.
