DIY Light Checks
Whenever I hook up the trailer, I need to test the trailer lights. Trouble is, I can’t press the brake pedal and view the lights at the same time. So I just clamp a stick to my steering wheel to hold the pedal down while I walk behind the trailer. I store the stick and clamp in the trunk (or behind the seat) for the next time I do my hookup. — Les Beekman. Plus: Learn what to do when your brake light comes on.
