Fleet Uptime: The keys to maximizing truck uptime via aftermarket parts and service
Trailer brake systems tend to make up the bulk of trailer service issues, with tire and wheel service issues following right behind. While those are the two main issues that will put trailers on the side of the road, electrical and lighting issues will generally get your trailer pulled over.
Now, historically, we haven’t had a lot of data about those service needs outside of what we recorded when the trailer was finally serviced. But trailer telematics systems are starting to evolve past location tracking to integrate with components like lighting systems and wheel ends and provide real-time faults much in the same way that tractor telematics do.
For tips on how to troubleshoot trailer service issues, watch the video above for advice from Tim Schunk, product manager, Noregon.
