Frequency of Trailer Servicing and Maintenance - Recommendations by NTTA
The Frequency of Trailer Servicing and Maintenance very much depends on type and frequency of usage, but an outline guide could be as follows:
- Daily or before each journey – certain checks are essential for safety and are the responsibility of the trailer operator.
- After the first 600 miles (1000 km) – essential for new trailers or if new brake linings and/or bowden cables are fitted.
- Every 3000 miles (5000 km) – three monthly for commercial / industrial trailers intensive usage, either by mileage towed or type of application and including boat trailers that are immersed in water.
- Every 6000 miles (10,000kms) – annually for caravans and leisure trailers. Six monthly for commercial/industrial trailers – based on “average” use.
