towing
correctly
will
help
to
achieve
this
weight.
Having
the
tongue
weight
too
low affects
the
vehicle's
handling.
You
can
determine
the
tongue
weight
using
a
tongue
weight
scale,
a
bathroom
scale,
or
a
pub-
lic
weigh
station,
for
example.
The
permitted
tongue
weight
of
your
vehicle
can
be
found
in
the
vehicle
documentation
or
in
=>
page
298.
Load
distribution
Poor
cargo
load
and
distribution
can
negatively
impact
vehicle
handling.
Load
the
trailer
based
on
the
following
criteria
as
much
as
possible:
Store
objects
in
the
vehicle
luggage
compart-
ment,
if
possible.
The
vehicle
should always
carry
the
heaviest
possible
load
and
the
trailer
should
have
the
lightest
possible
load.
Distribute
the
load
in
the
trailer
so
that
the
heavy
objects
are
as
close
to
the
axle
as
possi-
ble.
Secure
objects
so
that
they
do
not
slide.
Utilize
the
maximum
permitted
tongue
weight
if
possible.
Tires
Set
the
tire
pressure
on
your
vehicle
for
a
“full
load”;
see
the
tire
pressure
sticker
>
page
256.
If
necessary,
also
adjust
the
tire
pressure
on
the
trailer
according
to
the
manufacturer's
specifica-
tions.
The
tire
pressure
must
be
increased
an
additional
3
PSI
(0.2
bar)
for
towing
loads
over
6,600
lbs
(3,000
kg).
The
trailer
and
the
vehicle
should
be
equipped
with
winter
tires
when
driving
in
winter
tempera-
tures.
Outside
mirrors
If
you
cannot
see
the
traffic
behind
the
trailer
with
the
standard
exterior mirrors,
then
you
must
attach
additional
exterior mirrors.
Adjust
them
so
you
have
a
sufficient
visibility
behind
you.
