  Ritual reserved for prepping trailer
  Posted by: pikabike on Jan-31-14 1:20 PM (EST)

I have two rituals (PLEC and BATHS) when using the trailer, both intended to prevent creating a hazard for anybody else:

Place (coupler securely on ball)
Lock (coupler's latch--another way to ensure that the placement is secure)
Electrical (connect the trailer's wiring to the truck's)
Chains (hook them up)


Bearings check (for signs of grease leakage)
Air pressure check
Tread wear check
Hatch covers secure
Straps check

The acronyms help me go through the list systematically.
