If you drive a large truck on a daily basis, you know that there are certain maintenance requirements due at the start of each season. Read on to learn what you should do to get your semi-truck ready for the summer months.
Components to Check
The first component you’ll want to check is the pressure in all your tires. Cold winter temperatures compress the air in your tires. In the warm summer weather, your tires will expand. Be sure they’re all set to the proper psi.
You probably know the toll that cold weather takes on your battery, but you may not know that heat also wears out your battery. Excessive heat exposure has the potential to make your battery fail. Check your battery now so that you won’t have to stop out on the road later on.
Charge your system and then be sure to turn on the air conditioning so you can check for leaks or cracks in the connected tubes. The last thing you want is to be stuck out on the hot summer roads for hours on end with no air conditioning.
You’ll need to make sure your truck has plenty of coolant for the rising temperatures. Check out the coolant levels and your system’s hoses for destruction. If you find any damage, be sure to replace the broken parts before you get behind the wheel.
