Chapter5: How to maintain a high bed trailer?

Check the braking system

Clean the gasoline filter, fuel tank and oil pipeline to keep it clean and smooth.

Check and adjust the working pressure of the gasoline pump to keep it normal. Once the air resistance appears, it should stop to cool down, disassemble the carburetor inlet pipe joint, pull the gasoline pump hand rocker to make the gasoline fill the oil pipe, and restore the normal fuel supply.

In order to prevent the gas supply system from generating air resistance, a cold compress is usually used to reduce the temperature and make the oil supply smooth. Insulation pads can also be added, asbestos plate gaskets are added between the cylinder and the gasoline pump to reduce the heat transferred from the engine to the gasoline pump and prevent air resistance. In addition, the use of electric gasoline pumps is an effective way to prevent air resistance.

Prevent deflagration

Attention should be paid to maintaining the normal temperature of the engine, appropriately delaying ignition and enriching the mixture in advance. At the same time, the carbon deposits in the combustion chamber, valve head and other parts should be thoroughly removed in time.

In addition, the flatbed semi trailer should choose a suitable speed before going uphill again. Maintaining good power, preventing the vehicle speed from being too fast or making the mixed gas slightly lean, can effectively prevent the occurrence of deflagration.

Check the tires

Check the tire pressure to make sure that there is no lack of air or debris, and then see if the steel ring is deformed or cracked.

Before leaving the 45 ft flat body decks trailers, the tire pressure should be properly reduced. When resting during driving, check the tire temperature and pressure in time. If tire temperature and tire pressure are found to be too high, do not deflate or pour cold water. Instead, choose a cool place to stop and let the tire cool naturally.
