What Do I Need to Consider When Towing?

The first thing you always need to keep in mind is that you need to stick within the limits of your vehicle's towing capacity. Not doing so can have dire consequences, be completely ineffective, or be an unfortunate combination of the two. Another thing to keep in mind is that the weight of what you're towing can't be heavier than your actual vehicle. Hence, you'll need to know what your Ram or Jeep's Gross Vehicle Weight is.

Also, before you tow your boat anywhere, it's important to do several routine checks before heading out. Make sure your tire pressure, turn signals, taillights, brakes, and brake lights are all in working order. If any one of these things is faulty, it's unsafe to tow your boat.
