Tips
Block
the
wheels
with
chocks
when
parking
on
inclines
if
the
trailer
is
loaded.
Audi
recommends
having
the
vehicle
in-
spected
between
the
inspection
intervals
if
you
tow
a
trailer
frequently.
Avoid
driving
with
a
trailer
during
the
vehi-
cle
break-in
period.
Driving
with
a
trailer
Driving
with
a
trailer
requires
extra
caution.
Speed
Adhere
to
the legal
speed
limits.
Follow
the legal
regulations
that
are
applicable
in
the
country
where
you
are
operating
the
vehicle.
As
the
speed
increases,
the
driving
stability
of
the
trailer
decreases.
Therefore
you
should
not
exceed
the
maximum
legal
speed
limit
when
there
are
unfavorable
road,
weather,
and/or
wind
conditions.
This
especially
applies
when
driving
downhill.

Hill
When
you
start
driving
uphill
or
downhill,
trailers
may
tilt
or
sway
sooner
than
when
driving
ona
level
surface.
If
small
swaying
movements
have
already
occurred,
you
can
stabilize
the
trailer
by
firmly
braking
immediately.
Never
attempt
to
“straighten
out”
the
trailer
by
accelerating.
Downshift
before
driving
on
hills to
utilize
the
en-
gine
braking
effect

A\.
Brakes
When
using
a
trailer
with
overrun
brakes,
first
brake
gently
then
quickly.
This
reduces
the
risk
of
jerking
while
braking
if
the
trailer
wheels
lock
up.
Engine
coolant
temperature
Pay
attention
specifically
to
the
coolant
tempera-
ture
display
when
there
are
high
outside
temper-
atures,
and
when
driving
on
long
inclines
=>

Shift
to
a
higher
gear
in
a
timely
man-
ner.

WARNING
Constant
braking
causes
the
brakes
to
over-
heat
and
can
substantially
reduce
braking
per-
formance,
increase
braking
distance,
or
cause
complete
failure
of
the
brake
system.
