Its getting to be that time again,,,  Yup,, Road trips.

We get our vehicles backed up and hooked up to our trailers,,, get everything hooked up and lined up and jump in and go.

BUT,!!!!!!!     Did any of you remember to make adjustments to your head lights?  Seriously..  I have seen so many cars/ trucks,, pulling trailers with their head lights beaming over the TOP of tree lines on low beam.

Its not something that falls onto your usual checklist,, But when you drop a trailer on the back, The headlights do aim higher. Look up where your head light adjustments screws are located and do everyone a favor and adjust them correctly for your adventures,, plus it makes it safer to see the road,, instead of the tops of the trees.

Sorry I use a 4 inch drop hitch.

I had to chuckle on this one Lakota, probably the most over looked square on the old check off list. I have one to add as well. Make sure you have a hitch to match the height of the trailer.tong. I see a lot of high trucks pulling trailers with short drop hitches and a few with to low of a hitch. The trailer will pull much better if you match the hitch with the trailer. With my little GMC I use a  in drop hitch to pull my Coleman pop up.
