Optimize Your RV For Winter Excursion With These Maintenance Tips And Essential Add-Ons

rv jacks and couplersA recreational vehicle (RV) is essentially a tour bus for the whole family. Outfitted with convenience-enhancing components like an air conditioner, ceiling lights, bathroom ventilator, water pumps, a generator and electrical outlets, your home on wheels easily serves as a home away from home. The latter fact rings true to those who’ve headed for destinations far from home and enjoyed all of the creature comforts that are hallmarks of top-of-the-line RVs.

During winter months, many RV owners make the much-loved trip to the resort in the mountains for a few days of skiing, snowboarding, tubing and enjoying the ambiance of the lodge. Conversely, those looking to escape the cold can hop in the RV and seek out warmer destinations to enjoy a break from frigid temperatures. However, neither of these winter trips should ever get under way without preventative maintenance for your RV. That means addressing the engine, central vacuum unit, lights and electrical components as well as RV jacks and couplers for the gear you’ll have in tow.

Below are some common RV maintenance tips and items to have on hand before you hit the road this winter.

  • Under the hood (or the seat, or in the trunk): While your RV still has plenty in common with the common car engine, the former requires more cylinders cranking out more horsepower and torque to get the far-heavier vehicle moving along. What’s more, the size of these engines sometimes requires placement under the driver’s cabin or in the rear of the RV, further complicating serious maintenance. Thus, regular oil changes are essential if you want to avoid unexpected failures and hefty repair bills. According to CampingWorld.com, an oil change every 3,000 to 4,000 miles is sufficient.
  • Spacious solutions: While an RV is undoubtedly large, its storage options are often limited to overhead containers. When you need to tow a quad to your destination or load a trailer with skiing gear for the upcoming weekend, you’re going to need RV receiver hitches that have been specially designed to allow trailers to attach to RVs. With some hitches weighted to carry 3,500 lbs. and tongue weight of 350 lbs., even the most ambitious travelers could tow a boat with their trailer if only the lake weren’t iced over. When it comes to the trailers, RV jacks and couplers will allow you to lift anywhere from hundreds to thousands of pounds to change a sudden flat tire.
  • Tidy in tight spaces: All that time spent on the road is sure to contribute to a fine layer of dust and crumbs on the floor of your RV. Given that winter weather will force you to keep the windows up, opportunities to air out the space will be few and far between. With RV central vacuum units, such as the 2.72-gallon capacity model from Husky, you can tackle pet hair, dust and other allergens while traveling. This model comes with various hoses, brushes, wands and other dusting tools to keep every nook and cranny inside your RV clean.
  • Powered up: The common RV comes armed with nothing less than a generator, alternator, converter, inverter and fuse panel to keep the vehicle running and offering the conveniences of home. As with any home, things break and wear out, so the proactive RV owner would do well to have replacement lenses, cords, plugs and outlets on hand. With a Bargman 2-compartment replacement lens with clear back-up, you can fix unexpected component failures on the road.

Keep the above maintenance tips in mind and your winter RV get-away should be enjoyable and issue-free!

These Winter Projects And Crucial Products Will Keep Your ATV Hard At Work This Winter

nuera atv winterAs fun as it is to pull the ATV out after a snowfall and drift it sideways over a fresh coat of powder, there are always tasks that put the all-terrain qualities of these vehicles to better use. Tasks that include plowing walkways, salting driveways and generally enhancing mobility so you don’t need to don snowshoes to get around. ATV use is on the rise and for good reason: These four-wheel vehicles are fun, fast and efficient. As with anything mechanical, there are always a few maintenance-related efforts and general investments required to keep your ATV on the road – or in this case, off the road – during the winter months. In this post, we’ll explore some of those projects you can complete at home in the garage and products that will give new uses to your trustworthy ATV.

First things first: you need riding gear. It gets cold when you’re speeding along at 20 or 30 mph with snow whipping around and the general winter cold making things less than hospitable. While goggles and insulated jackets are essentials, hand-warmers inside your gloves aren’t a bad idea, either.

Moving on to maintenance, winter is a battery’s worst enemy. Riding is infrequent and as such, sporadic usage doesn’t give the battery a chance to naturally recharge. A trickle charger can be plugged into an outlet wherever you store your ATV so you’ll have an easy start no matter how cold it is.

With these essential considerations out of the way,  you’re free to improve your ATV for winter use as you see fit. As much fun as these vehicles are, there are undoubtedly productive uses for them and a salt-spreader is one of the more practical uses for your ATV. ATV-capable salt spreaders are specially designed to be fitted to ATVs via a tow bar that’s part of the fully-welded frame. When dumping your salt into the spreader’s hopper, you can use bulk or bagged material and benefit from a wide spray range. This means you’ll be able to knock out walkways in one pass or most driveways in just a few jaunts up and down the lane – and it’s more fun than using a shovel or snowblower! Most of the hoppers come with rain covers so you need not worry about still-falling snow affecting the quality of the salt that has yet to be distributed on the ground. The first-class manufacturing of these salt-spreaders that attach to ATVs means that enclosed gearboxes with grease fittings make for easy maintenance before or after the job is done.

If safety during inclement weather is a concern, then companies like Nuera Trailer Parts can supply you with ATV LED Light Bars, such as flood lights or spot lights that attach to your ATV. By installing these devices that come in 13, 22 or 33-inch lengths and work with 12 or 24-volt electrical systems, you’ll have unobstructed nighttime views even during snowfall. That’s an essential safety to consideration if you’re trying to be proactive and salt the driveway the night before a significant storm. Of course, we all like to have a little bit of fun when it snows so investing in traction-improving tires should also be on your shopping list. With the Duro Power Trail tire that boasts special lugs for increased stability and traction, you’ll be able to navigate all types of terrain even when the path ahead is obscured.

Here Are Four Items Every ATV Rider Should Have On Their Ride Or In The Garage

Nuera TrailerpartsThere’s something special about ATVs and the all-ages escape they offer. The learning curve is nothing like that of a motorcycle and with the right amount of supervision, anyone can let loose for an afternoon. If you can get four wheels underneath you and have sprawling fields and forests before you, then you’re in for a good time. What’s more, there’s no shortage of riders who are putting these vehicles to use on farms due to the ease of transportation they offer. According to a September 2017 market study by Technavio, the global ATV market is projected to grow just shy of 3 percent from 2017 through 2021. Given that tens of thousands of ATVs were sold in 2016, this is encouraging news for off-road enthusiasts who like to see their sport stay healthy. According to the Technavio report, one of the reasons why sustained sales are expected is due to lower maintenance costs as of late, but preventative maintenance is still key to keeping your ride in running condition. In this article from Nuera Trailer Parts, we’ll explore four items that every ATM owner should have installed on their ride or back at the garage.


1) For Performance: Either you had a little too much fun or had to work a bit later than expected. With sunlight fading, you’re going to need more than a wing and prayer to get you home. In this case, it would be wise to install a 13-inch LED spot/flood light bar from Optronics. Consisting of 24 diodes and constructed from heavy-duty aluminum, this water- and dust-resistant bar lamp is hard-wired and compatible with direct current (DC) systems of 12 or 24 volts.


2) For the Farm: The prevalence of ATVs and utilitarian UTVs in agricultural settings is a testament to their usefulness. However, there are plenty of times when you need a helping hand to get the job done. In instances such as these, we suggest investing in an electric winch that’s capable of towing thousands of pounds across all types of terrain. Thanks to metal three-stage planetary gear trains, retracting the winch itself is a smooth process and allows users to haul fellow ATVs or trailers up to 2,500 pounds.


3) For an Emergency: As with any fuel-driven vehicle, it’s important to keep an eye on the gas gauge or you could find yourself sputtered to an extended halt until help comes along. For ATV riders who want to go on long-distance journeys -- and aren’t too sure where they’ll end up taking a break at -- the need for a locking gas can rack is two-fold. First, you’ll have a few extra gallons of fuel attached to the side of your ride and two, the locking mechanism on the rack will keep it secured while you’re away. We can’t think of a better investment for ATV riders who’ll take a break on foot to explore the surroundings, but still want peace of mind while their ATV waits nearby.


4) For Fun: If you want to turn your ATV into a nimble vehicle that can still grip some of  the harshest terrain imaginable, then a tire upgrade is in order. When shopping for new rubber that will fit your rims, consider 8-ply construction for better handling on- and off-road. Industry leaders, such as Mercenary, have designed tires with treads that self-clear so dirt, mud and rocks won’t get stuck and effect performance.

It’s Time To Check Your Trailer’s Lights And Lenses Because Daylight Savings Is Officially Over

trailer lightsWe both know that the contents being towed in your trailer are quite important. It doesn’t matter if you’re hauling cattle for sale, an ATV for an afternoon of fun or a boat that will let you get away from it all, you need to reach your destination on time and without incident. However, having a trailer is like having a second car in the driveway – you must consistently keep up with its many components to ensure that it’s going to work as designed when you need it the most.

Now that daylight savings time has ended as of Nov. 5, those early-morning jobs or late nights driving home will require a bit more forethought. That’s because this annual ritual in which we set out clocks back one hour means trailer owners should soon give their gear a walk-around to ensure that the trailer lights are working as they should. At best, you’ll need to only swap out some bulbs and a replacement lens covers. At worst, you could suffer a mechanical malfunction and be stuck with an immobilized trailer that’s nearly invisible to other drivers during off-peak hours.

While nation-wide adherence to daylight savings time had been spotty at best over the past 100 years, turning our clocks back every fall is now a standardized process and effects everyone who hits the road early or comes home late. In either of those cases, crucial trips with vital goods in tow means trailer owners must inspect trailer tail lights to be proactive in the event of an emergency.  That goes for running lights, trailer reflectors and brake lights because all serve as important indicators to other motorists. By shopping with a respected trailer parts company like Nuera, you’ll be able to select some of the best trailer reflectors, LED-style trailer lights, dome lights, license plate lights, replacement lenses, kit harnesses and more. Some of the best-selling trailer lights carried by Nuera come from respected companies like Optronics, Bargman and Peterson. With Nuera, you can pick out the best-selling trailer tail lights from Optronics, which also comes with a license light, or invest in Peterson protected clearance lights for the sides or top of your trailer.

While we’re on the topic of driving in the dark, we’d similarly like to offer these on-road tips to ensure safe driving at night. According to Popular Mechanics magazine, auxiliary lights like the types of trailer lights and trailer reflectors offered by Nuera give a much-needed visibility boost for you and nearby motorists. However, use them sparingly to avoid blinding passing drivers. Similarly, Popular Mechanics suggests that you adjust your rear- and side-view mirrors before heading out. Given that you’ve got a trailer in tow, it’s even more so important to be able to see your cargo with little more than a glance to the left. Every state in the U.S. requires trailers to have working tail lights and license plate lights so there’s no excuse for not having these in working order. Moreover, the clocks won’t spring forward one hour until 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, 2018 so it’s time to brush up on safe driving-in-the-dark practices If you’re unsure of what product to purchase for your trailer or know that it’s time to fix that cracked lens and burned-out bulb, visit nueratrailerparts.com.

Use Enclosed Trailer To Protect Your Powersports Equipment From Damage While Towing

trailer hitch

Most people don’t give a second thought to flying down the road at highway speeds until they are towing something that holds considerable personal or cash value. While it’s possible to load up your lawnmowers, ATVs, snowmobiles and other landscaping or powersports equipment into an open-air trailer, you’re going to regret doing so when a piece of road debris does considerable damage. A dented gas tank, ripped fuel line or shattered headlight lamp could all easily be caused by a flying stone kicked up by another passing vehicle that unfortunately bounced right into the bed of your trailer. In the face of this possibility, motorists who need to transport valuable equipment should consider an enclosed trailer for all of the many benefits they offer.

Enclosed trailers come in a wide variety of sizes and purposes, from 28-foot-long trailers used for transporting cars and trucks to smaller 10-foot-long types that will comfortably carry a riding lawnmower. Other varieties of enclosed trailers will offer owners interior work stations for mechanical maintenance or office space, while those seeking something for race day at the track can even find taller trailers with a lift already installed. While a mechanical lift isn’t for everyone, it sure beats having to work on your motorcycles or other powersports equipment in the blazing sun or pouring rain. When transporting goods,  it’s advisable to check out offerings from trailer parts companies so you’ll have the tie-downs, straps, bungee cords and winches require for proper powersports equipment towing.

Given the weight of such loads -- a snowmobile can easily weight 500 lbs while a riding lawnmower can tip the scales at 600 lbs -- maintenance can’t be overlooked. Regular wear and tear on anything mechanical is best addressed before it breaks at the critical moment,  so shopping for items like a trailer hitch, mounting bracket, hitch pins and balls, winch hooks and so much more. While there’s no motor to maintain on a trailer, there are clearly plenty of other moving -- and non-moving parts -- that will require regular inspection and replacement. Of considerable concern should be your trailer hitch. You may need only a basic ball mount to carry around a lightweight trailer or you could be in the market for a bolt-on hitch for heavier loads. Even basic ball hitches can wear out, so be sure to give your trailer a visual inspection before heading out on any trip to avoid a roadside disaster.

Onset Of Harvest Season Is Crucial Time For Farmers To Inspect Agricultural Trailers

horse trailer parts

More than just a popular bumper sticker refrain, “No farms, no food” is a concept that carries a lot of weight. If it weren’t for farmers across this great land making our food supply chain a reality, your local supermarket would look much different from how it does today. For the farmers who’ll soon be gearing up for harvest season, these waning summer weeks are the perfect time to give your gear the once-over. Nothing mechanical runs forever without a little preventative maintenance and with that in mind, it’s time check out your agricultural trailer to make sure all the components are going to work as needed during this busy time of year.

- Electrical systems: Since many farm trailers are road-worthy, you’ll legally need brake lights and turn signals to indicate your movement to other vehicles. You’ll want to take the time to closely inspect the harnesses, plugs and insulation of the wiring that runs to the lights on your trailer. Regular wear and tear can cause wires to rip out of the light socket and the simple passage of time could mean a blown bulb that’s gone undetected.

- The wheel well and brakes: Trailers are designed to carry a lot of weight. However, safely carting around livestock or the bounties of your harvest requires more than the correct tire pressure. From lug hubs and spindles to agricultural bearings, the business end of your trailer’s axle requires special attention. The only way to detect signs of serious wear on your bearings or races is to pull them out for an inspection. A simple cotter pin is often all that you need to remove to start the disassembly process. If all appears to be in working order, make sure to re-pack the bearing assembly with grease before reinstallation. If your brakes appear to be a little on the weak side or non-functioning, you may need to bleed them and re-fill with synthetic brake fluid or see if the surge actuator on the hitch is doing its job.

- Planning for the unexpected: Farm trailers take a lot of abuse. That’s why it’s critical to find the best horse trailer parts on the market. By opting to save a few dollars on a cut-rate product, you could end up with an A-frame coupler that fails on the road; a trickle charger that cuts out suddenly, thus leaving you with a dead battery; a butterfly latch that bends and fails to keep the rear door trailer door closed or a drop leg that isn’t capable of keeping your trailer propped up.

With the onset of fall just a short time away, the demand for many specialty and seasonal products is about to hit full-swing. If you want to set yourself up for a smooth and successful harvest season, follow these tips to ensure your trailers are in working order.

Enhance RV Safety With These Parts Designed To Improve Trailer Towing

CaptureYour recreational vehicle (RV) or camper is often a home away from home. The spacious interior and ample room for storage provides space for you and your family to stretch your legs out during vacations or weekend getaways. However, as the family grows and the space for stowing your personal belongings inside shrinks, it’s time to look outside the box. There are also likely to be outings when you’ll need to bring along a canoe or motorcycle, but have nowhere to put it. In times like these, we suggest looking to a trailer for your RV. The added space will give you the opportunity to store more outside of the passenger’s compartment  and, in turn, bring more with you or back home. The “hitch” here – pun intended, but we’ll get to that later – is that you can’t expect to just link a trailer up with your RV and hit the road. There are considerations that drivers must make and we’ll explain of a few of the most important ones in this article.

- Weight distribution hitches: Trailers come in many sizes and RVs are capable of towing moderately-sized loads. With the added weight in the back, it is absolutely essential to research the right RV trailer parts, especially weight distribution hitches. These products increase ride stability by transferring the weight of your cargo forward, which reduces the likelihood of a bumpy ride.

- Sway bars: Another add-on designed to enhance stability are sway bars. These parts compensate for weight, like specialized hitches do, but for the left-and-right movement caused by factors such as crosswinds. The systems currently on the market are mainly designed to either prevent sway once its begins or stop it altogether and have varying price tags, so research the handful of bars offers by RV trailer parts companies before proceeding with a purchase.

- Brake controllers: If you want to ensure the utmost safety of your RV and the contents of your trailer, then a brake controller is the way to go. These electronic devices are typically mounted in the cab of your vehicle and activate the brakes on your trailer. In an emergency, you’ll wish you had this device that can promote even braking between your vehicle and the hundreds of pounds of personal possessions you have in tow.

- Coupler locks: You can’t be expected to keep an eye on your RV and trailer at all times and in instances when you’re away from the camp site, a coupler lock could become your new best friend. These devices come in a variety of styles to fit different trailers or hitches but, at the end of the day, keep your trailer safely secured to your vehicle and often offer easy removal with a key.

Follow These Trailer Maintenance Tips at Regular Intervals to Ensure Reliable Operation




A trailer is an extension of your motor vehicle, both literally and figuratively. Yes, the trailer extends from the back of your car or truck, but the same care and consideration you put into maintenance of your vehicle should also extend to the trailer. That’s because failing to keep tabs on the condition of your trailer and its many crucial parts could leave you stranded on the side of the road with an albatross to tow home. Even worse, it could cause an accident that leaves you or other motorists injured, or could damage the goods you were towing. Given these unpleasant possibilities, we’re here to suggest regular intervals to inspect or replace trailer parts in the hopes of avoiding a headache or accident.

  • Weekly (or each trip)

- Tire pressure: It’s recommended that trailer tires be inflated to the maximum PSI that they are rated for to ensure safe transportation of your load.

- Lights: Headlights, brake lights and turn signals should all be checked. Enlist the help of a friend to knock this one out in a few minutes at most. If something isn’t working, it’s likely just a blown bulb that needs replacing.

  • Every 3 months

- Check/tighten lug nuts: Whether with a socket wrench or pneumatic air gun, make sure the lug nuts that hold the wheels on are tight.

- Brake adjustment: Although a special tool is required for this process, it’s not a difficult one and requires little more than jacking the trailer up and getting access to the brake adjuster.

- Check  tire condition (tread and wear pattern): Over- or under-inflated tires will present specific and vastly different patterns of wear.  If left unchecked, the tire will wear down to a point where its continued use is unsafe.

  • Every 6 months - check and replace/repair if necessary:

- Brake magnets: A multimeter will come in handy here to help you check the amperage and ohms.

- Brake control: The calibration of brake controllers of any variety should be considered at this interval.

- Suspension parts: All those bumps in the road take a toll on your trailer’s suspension. Bushings and springs frequently fall victim to the use and abuse.

- Wheels: No matter if you kept your tires properly inflated, the rubber wears down after time. Check the tread depth and wear patterns. If either appear to have seen better times, it’s time to start shopping for trailer tires.

  • Yearly

- Change brake shoe/lining: Brake shoes are a critical component of the trailer braking process. To ensure safe and proper operation, consider replacing them annually.

- Check brake wiring: Visually inspect the condition of the wires in the system to predict and prevent the possibility of shortages.

- Hub and Drums: While the brakes are made up of many parts, hubs and drums keep the system contained. Inspecting or replacing them means you’ll rest easy knowing all the components inside are well-protected.

- Re-pack bearings: If a bearing blows out, you’re going to be in a world of hurt. By removing the bearings to care for them, you’re preventing a road-side disaster.

- Change brake fluid (hydraulic brakes): Want to ensure a well-operating system that’s free of debris? Then change the brake fluid regularly and you’ll likely have a safer ride.

Check all of the above at the suggested intervals and you will help prevent issues and accidents, ensuring proper enjoyment of your trailer throughout the year!

Avoid Risky Roadside Towing Troubles With Top-Of-The-Line Boat Trailer Parts

CaptureWhile it would certainly be nice -- or at the very least, quite convenient -- if we could fit our motorized toys inside our usual commuter vehicle, strapping a fishing boat to the roof of a car isn’t happening. So, with that issue established and agreed upon, what’s the owner of a boat of any size to do when he or she wants to hit the water but has to bring the vessel there first? Put it on a trailer, of course! For those looking for boat trailer parts as they research trailer safety tips, we’re here to suggest the benefits of brake surge actuators for boat trailers. As anyone who has ever towed a boat of any size around will say, factoring for the trailer’s movement as you head down the road is never easy. Fortunately, brake surge actuators make moving your vessel a safer and less stressful venture before and after your time on the water.


Generally, hydraulic brake surge actuators are designed to cushion the trailer’s movement during deceleration or braking. This is done automatically by synchronizing the trailer’s brakes with the brakes of the vehicle towing it. The design of the brake surge actuator allows for uniform brake line pressure that promotes a smoother, quicker and safer stop. As a boat tends to surge forward during braking, this is a valuable device that can keep the vessel on your trailer and stop it from flying through the rear window or over the roof of your car or truck. Towing capacity is a key consideration for consumers looking into brake surge actuators for towing purposes. However, a wide variety of makes and models are already on the market and designed to meet the needs of motorists whose boats often have vastly varying weights.


Trailer safety on the road is also an essential consideration for motorists who need to use these devices to transport their other vehicles, including jet skis, motorcycles or industrial equipment. Performing routine maintenance on your trailer will ensure that it’s operating as efficiently and safely as possible. In the event of the accident, you’d hate to find out that a bald tire was to blame and a quick once-over look before departing on your trip could have prevented the mess you’re now faced with.

Fashion Plus Function: Here’s How Lift Kits Can Enhance A Golf Cart’s Performance, Appearance

Pause for a moment and picture a golf cart. Doesn’t exactly scream performance and authority, right? Well never mind those naysayers! For proud owners of golf carts everywhere, there’s no reason to let your vehicle languish in mediocrity. From golf cart wheels to tires and accessories, we’re here to break down what lift kits for golf carts can do for you and your ride.

CaptureWhat’s the difference between a golf cart and a buggy? After installing a lift kit and associated gear on the former, it will start performing a lot like latter. Essentially, these add-ons allow for the conversion of most golf carts to go from vehicles limited to the lazily rolling hills of their namesake venues to off-road all-terrain warriors in search of greener and more exciting pastures.

Larger tires -- which typically range from 18 to 23 inches -- can be installed thanks to the lifts that raise the body, often from anywhere between 2-and-a-half inches up to 6 inches. The greater clearance between the stock tires and the chassis means more room to give when driving over rocks or other obstacles. Those considering the long-range off-road route should also look into specialized lift kits that address suspension, steering and stability. A number of other conversion kits are available for those looking for axle adjustments and other under-the-hood configurations.

Speaking of tires, they come in a variety of tread types and rim styles. Looking for something flashy? Golf cart rims that are part of lift kits can rival anything seen on custom cars. As for tire treads, a slew of patterns and tread depths exist for conquering a variety of terrains. Golf cart lift kit accessories already on the market include sleek lug nuts and valve stems, colored hub covers and more. Lastly, it’s imperative for golf cart owners to research the make and model they already own, as lift kits – like car parts – are not interchangeable.
