  • Maintain a greater distance from the vehicle in front than when driving without a trailer.
  • Avoid braking abruptly. If possible, brake gently at first to allow the trailer to run on. Then, increase the braking force rapidly.
  • The values given for gradient-climbing capabilities from a standstill refer to sea level. When driving in mountainous areas, note that the power output of the engine, and consequently the vehicle's gradientclimbing capability, decrease with increasing altitude.

If the trailer swings from side to side:

  • Do not accelerate.
  • Do not counter-steer.
  • Brake if necessary.
