THE LAST SIX MONTHS WENT IN A FLASH – LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!

We, and the world, watched in horror as Hurricane Irma, the worst in living memory, wreaked havoc across the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Cuba and Florida.

The utter destruction affected several of our clients who experienced devastating losses. We worked tirelessly to process their claims and still pray for them and all the victims.

Durban had its own devastating storm but the people pulled together to clean up and help each other!

TIP OF THE MONTH – TOWING LEGALLY

To get to your holiday destination glitch-free – make sure you’re towing legally!

Take note of these regulations for towing boats, trailers or caravans.

CHECK YOUR DRIVERS LICENCE:

Code B driver’s license: (for light vehicles such as passenger cars and bakkies)

  • Only allows you to tow unbraked trailers lighter than 750kg (fully laden).
  • Check your vehicle’s Tare (licence weight of an empty vehicle). It needs to be double that of the trailer. So, if your trailer weighs 750kg, the drawing vehicle must have a Tare of 1500kg. Even slightly less is illegal!

Code EB licenses: (light motor vehicles able to draw a boat, trailer or caravan).

  • Allows the driver to tow up to 3500kg.
  • If the trailer exceeds 750kg and has its own braking system, the weight of the vehicle must be equal to, or more than, the weight of the trailer.
  • Trailers with a GVM that exceeds 750 kilograms must have overrun brakes installed.

SOME TOWING TIPS

    • Beware of overloading.To pack within the weight limit:Subtract the trailer’s tare mass (its actual unloaded mass) from its GVM (maximum weight/mass when fully loaded). So, if your trailer’s GVM is 750 kg and its tare mass 150 kg, the maximum you can load is 600 kg.

 

  • Pack properlyIf you have a single-axle trailer, pack heavy goods as close to the axle as possible.The ideal centre of gravity is just ahead of the axle – for a nose loading of around 10% of the trailer’s GVM. Make sure your load is properly secured – to avoid shifts during towing which can alter the nose mass and affect stability.

TALKING OF BRAKES

Geoff Shiers of LA Axles, manufactures hydraulic disc-braked, oil-filled axles for boat trailer
manufacturers countrywide.

For towing purposes, he says the efficiency of this braking system is exceptional on both small and large trailers and comparable to motor vehicle brakes. Maintenance is considerably less than cable operated, drum braked systems.

The coupler travel is approximately 30mm so there is virtually no delay between the vehicle braking and trailer braking.
