Torque settings should be rechecked after first 20 miles & then again after 50 miles. Then every 1500 miles or 6 monthly

Always make sure the brake lever is fully applied (vertical) when parking. When pushing the trailer down hill, by hand,  always go Hitch First, so the hand brake works. When parking for a long time use steady’s and blocks to hold trailer and release the brake.
