Hauling a 5th wheel trailer can push your pickup truck to the limits of its towing capacity.
For your protection (and your truck’s as well) a number of 5th wheel towing accessories may be necessary to help you Get Out and Go the right way. This is Part 2 of the essential 5thwheel products we recommend for you.
Overheating is the #1 cause of transmission failure
Besides entering a stump-pulling contest in July, a great way to fry your transmission is neglecting to install a transmission cooler before hauling a 5th wheel.
Torklift Central’s transmission coolers keep transmission fluid cool and clean when towing heavy loads of any kind. Even when your rig is completely unloaded during city driving, transmission coolers significantly extend the life of your transmission.
Often required before towing
It’s always a good idea to check your truck’s owner’s manual before hauling any sort of load. 5thwheel trailers are certainly no exception. Not every truck owner is aware that many vehicle manufacturers require a power steering cooler be installed before they recommend towing at the truck’s full capacity.
Power steering coolers lower the temperature of your truck’s power steering systems under normal operating conditions as well as when it’s dealing with the added stress of heavy hauling.
Driver further with fewer stops
Pickup trucks are not the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road. Attach a 5thwheel hitch to the bed and you might mistake your fuel gauge for the minute hand on a clock. If you’ve ever run out of fuel hauling a heavy load, or wished you didn’t spend so much time at gas stations, an auxiliary fuel tank could be the perfect solution.
Auxiliary fuel tanks can triple
your factory fuel capacity, extend your range, and easily refuel other vehicles and equipment. Available in 30, 40, and 50-gallon capacities, learn which auxiliary fuel tank is the best fit for your truck here
