Do you like to get away for a weekend on the lake to do some fishing, or just to go for a cruise in your boat? After a long week of work and hustle and bustle, few things compare to loading your boat on the back of your trailer and towing it behind your truck as you ride off to the lake. But before you can do that, there are several things you should do in order to prepare your truck and boat for a weekend on the lake.
The first step in preparing your boat and truck is to make sure that you have the right size trailer that can fit the boat size on it, and also make sure your truck is able to carry the weight of the boat without any problems. When you load the boat onto the trailer, you’ll want to take care that you do not damage any parts of the body or engine. The boat should be stored away under a protective covering when it isn’t in use.
The second part is to make sure that the boat’s engine components have been checked including gasoline, oil, spark plugs, cooling system, transmission fluid, propeller, engine belts, and other important parts. When you check the engine, perhaps the most important part is your electrical system as you will need the power of your battery in order to start your boat. When you put the boat into storage, it’s usually wise to remove the battery from the boat and store it in a room of safe temperatures. You will want to check to make sure it hasn’t been corroded, running low on juice, and the wires are still intact.
If you need new batteries for your boat, you can select from a wide variety of marine batteries that are designed for heavy use. The most commonly used batteries are deep cycle batteries, which are known to have a more constant flow of electricity into your boat engine for prolonged use and to add more power. These batteries also come with a 1-year warranty so if they don’t work, you can return them and get a new one free. Don’t leave your boat without power, buy a battery from General Power Batteries so you can spend quality leisure time out on the water.
