In this free video lesson, RV maintenance expert Dave Solberg shows you how to properly and safely attach trailer hitch safety chains to avoid sagging and binding. You want to ensure that the chains have enough clearance from the distribution bar, but not so much that they sag to the ground and not so little that they bind when going around corners.
The key to properly attached trailer hitch safety chains is crisscrossing one underneath the other. This is required by law in some states, but it’s also essential for safety. Follow along with Dave’s advice for correctly hooked safety chains, and you’ll be all set for your next towing adventure!
