    Safe towing tips for the long MudBug trip...

    I just wanted to start a thread where everyone can input some tips on how to tow safely to the MudBug event. Some people will drive really long distances.

    Just put in your safety measures and tips, and what to check constantly along the trip and before leaving.

    Also remember, this WILL help ME a LOT too!

    I have seen one of those hubs in a box at some stores and thought about that but then I just did my bearings so I probably wont but it is a pre-greased hub, bearing all ready to go just slide on the axle and your back on your way, was only around $48 so not bad.

    Hardest part will be detemining what size you have currently.

    Just get your bearings in tip top shape and check them for heat now and then and you should be all right

    Try to keep your hand on 10 and 2 on the steering wheel at all times. No Corona!!!! Wait till you get to your location!!!. If wifey get tipsy make she she doesnt fall asleep on ur lap . Other then that make sure ur tire preasure is good. Get a spare tire. Bring extra bulbs.

    Check your tire pressure on the trailer and the "tow" vehicle : also check the spare tires. ......Hate to see someone get a flat and the spare is flat also

    Hmmmm, how about this one...if you decide to tow your ski backwards on your trailer, be sure to tie down the front of the ski. That way, if the winch fails your ski doesn't go flying off the trailer and bouncing down the road! Sorry geo - couldn't resist!
