Taking care of your RV and/or tow vehicle is very important, but replacing your tow bar is equally important. This is because tow bars too suffer from wear and tear. Just consider the amount of traffic you experience when driving your car, and the number of times you are made to stop and start your vehicle on roads. Every time you stop and begin moving forward, you place stress on the towbar. Leaving the tow bar as it is can leave you and other drivers on the road vulnerable and on harm’s way.

To know whether it’s time to replace your towbar or not, you must check some of the important pieces of your tow bar. First, you must look at the pins. They are quite simple to check in and each time you use your towbar, you can get to know their condition. If you can not make out whether the pins are in good condition or not by merely looking at them, you may remove the casing and run your fingers along the surface of the pins. If you notice any indentions or wear and tear, you must replace the tow bar immediately as loose pins or those that are worn out can prove quite fatal.

Likewise, make sure that the pins do not wiggle and that they span into place securely. Also, the pins when put back in place must offer a lot of resistance.

You must also access the bolts and the structural integrity of the hitches of your tow bar. Replace the tow bars melbourne at once if you find any issues with the parts mentioned above. By replacing the tow bar, you can enjoy safe and care-free travel.
