Summer Pre-Roadtrip Checklist

Posted by Jess Stoeckeler on

  1. Check for recalls on your vehicle.
  2. Check all lights, including emergency flashers and trailer lights.
  3. Get tires inspected for wear and proper inflation. Don’t forget to check
    your trailer tires and make sure your spare is in the trunk.
  4. Have your shocks and struts looked at, especially if you’re planning on traveling rough roads.
  5. With a cool engine, check radiator fluids (coolant reservoir full). With summer driving comes a higher risk of your engine overheating.
  6. Test your A/C.

  1. Check all other fluids: brake, transmission, power steering,
    windshield washer.
  2. Inspect belts and hoses for damaged rubber and loose connections.
  3. Have brakes checked, including trailer brakes.
  4. Change wiper blades if needed.
  5. Inspect roof racks, back-end cargo carriers and bike racks.
  6. Charge your phone and don’t forget your charger.
  7. Carry a first aid kit, a flashlight or headlamp, and extra water in case you’re stranded in the heat.
  8. Check weather and traffic on your route.
