Tips for Horse Van Owners









IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF:


THE HEIGHT OF YOUR VEHICLE


THE REQUIRED TYRE PRESSURE & CHECKING OF WHEEL NUTS WHEN NEW TYRES HAVE BEEN FITTED


THE DATE OF THE VEHICLES LAST SERVICE


THE DUE DATE OF THE NEXT DOE TEST (NOTE – IF YOUR DOE EXPIRES YOU WILL ONLY GET 6 MONTHS AND NOT ONE YEAR ON THE DISC SO TRY NOT TO LET IT EXPIRE)


CARRY A CAN OF TYRE FOAM IN THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT IN CASE OF A PUNCTURE


IF USING THE TOWBAR CHECK AT REGULAR INTERVALS OR HAVE IT CHECKED BY A PROFESSIONAL AS PART OF OUT OF COURSE MAINTENANCE


CHECK TYRES, OIL, WATER, AND COOLANT AT REGULAR INTERVALS AND HAVE THE VEHICLE SERVICED ANNUALLY IF NOT REACHING SPECIFIED MILEAGE INTERVALS


TO KEEP THE BATTERY IN GOOD RUNNING ORDER START THE VEHICLE A FEW TIMES A WEEK

MIGHT BE HANDY TO HAVE A SET OF JUMP LEADS ON HAND & A SMALL TOOL KIT TO ENSURE YOU CAN ACCESS FOOTWELL IF THAT IS WHERE THE BATTERY IS.


DIPETHANE FUEL LUBRICANT IS AVAILABLE AT MOST SERVICES AND TREATS 4 TANKS OF FUEL PER BOTTLE – ITS LIKE A TONIC FOR YOUR FUEL SYSTEM


WE RECOMMEND FOR YOU TO COME BACK TO US FOR YOUR DOE WHEN IT EXPIRES AND WE WILL GIVE THE HORSE AREA OF THE VAN A MAINTENANCE CHECK.


KEEPING ON TOP OF MAINTENANCE IS THE BEST WAY TO PRESERVE THE VAN FOR YOU OR FOR FUTURE SALE.


BE GENTLE WITH YOUR VAN AND IT WILL BE GOOD TO YOU! 😊
