Taking good care of your horse trailer during the winter season entails that you will be able to use it for an extensive period of time. At the same time, if you intend to put the horse trailer for sale at some point or another, you will be able to obtain an excellent price if it is in top condition. But what exactly does winterizing your horse trailer mean?
First of all, you will need to remove all the accessories that are not essential to the trailer, a list which includes all the items necessary for your horse such as blankets, tack and so on. Rather than leave them in the trailer, take the time to clean and store them properly indoors. Furthermore, should you decide to keep the horse trailer outdoors during winter, then it is important to use UV-proof curtains and cover its windshields with tin foil.
In addition, an outside trailer storage will require that you drain out the entire water supply from its system and disconnecting all the hoses. This way, you will be able to avoid damage associated with water freezing along the pipeline. The same thing goes for all the electrical appliances you may have lying around the trailer. However, it is important to note that if you have the possibility to house the horse trailer indoors, you should definitely do so.
