Trailer Sway Control
Trailer sway control is a system designed to assist in preventing or reducing the swaying or fishing of a trailer while being towed. It helps enhance stability and control by applying brakes or adjusting the trailer’s weight distribution. Trailer sway control can be achieved by using sway control hitches, anti-sway bars, or adjusting driving techniques.
The importance of trailer sway control lies in its ability to maintain stability while towing, thus helping to avoid accidents and damage to the trailer and vehicle. To ensure effective trailer sway control, follow these steps:
- Properly load and balance the trailer.
- Securely fasten the hitch.
- Maintain a safe speed.
- Be aware of windy conditions.
By following these guidelines, you can enhance the stability and safety of your towing experience, ensuring that you are properly equipped. If you require further assistance or have concerns about secure checking, feel free to reach out to our support team.
Tow/haul mode is a feature found in Dodge trucks that assists in optimizing the performance of the vehicle when towing heavy loads. It focuses on utilizing lower transmission gears to aid in slowing the truck and reducing the strain on the brakes while towing. Additionally, it shifts gears less frequently to maintain drivetrain temperatures.
Employing tow/haul mode when towing can provide several benefits, including:
- Alleviating stress on the brakes
- Optimizing transmission shifting
- Maintaining drivetrain temperatures
- Improving fuel economy
- Reducing wear and tear on the vehicle
To enable tow/haul mode, simply press the corresponding button on the dashboard or use the cruise control buttons.
