Trailer towing tips

Trailer towing tips  - Trailer towing - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Х Practice turning, stopping and backing-up before starting on a trip to get the feel of the vehicle-trailer combination. When turning, make wider turns so the trailer wheels will clear curbs and other obstacles.
Х To aid in engine/transmission cooling and A/C efficiency during hot weather while stopped in traffic, place the gearshift lever in P (Park).
Х After you have traveled 50 miles (80 km), thoroughly check your hitch, electrical connections and trailer wheel lug nuts.
Х If you are driving down a long or steep hill, shift to the УMФ position, then use the paddle shifters to manually shift to a lower gear. Do not apply the brakes continuously, as they may overheat and become less effective. For more information on transmission operation and gear positions, see Automatic transmission operation in the Driving chapter.
Х Vehicles with trailers should not be parked on a grade. If you must park on a grade, place wheel chocks under the trailerТs wheels.
