Summer Road Trip Tips

Before you hit the road in the family Truckster here are a couple of quick tips to make she is ready for the road:

1) Checking tire pressure (especially in the summer) is very important-  make sure all (5) tires are set to the pressure recommended on the drivers jam door sticker. Yep, I said 5 tires, make sure to check that spare tire in the trunk or on the underside of your vehicle.  It's no fun finding out the hard way that your spare tire is low...

2) Check all fluid levels- Make sure engine oil and transmission fluid is full according to the dipstick.  Check the antifreeze level only when the engine is cold. If you are unsure what the level should be or type of fluids your vehicle requires, swing by and we will check it for free.  *Note- it is always best to start off a road trip after a fresh oil change if possible.  

3)  Make sure all lights are working and your wipers are able to clean the windshield well.  Don't allow that Smokey to pull you over because of a faulty brake light bulb and delay your family vacation.  Make sure your tail lights and brake lights are in good working order.  Also, fill up that washer jug so you are able to clean that windshield when the world's largest June bug smacks the windshield right in your field of view.  (Because that is always where they land).

Enjoy your journey!  You now should be able to make the 722 mile journey to Walldrug without any issues or concerns!
