Jockey Wheel Maintenance

The main problem with inflatable wheels is that you have to check the pressure periodically. Otherwise, we run the risk of losing pressure and deflate, with the camera crashing.

As for rigid wheels, suffice it to say that they deteriorate faster than inflatable ones. They will “peel” when they hit rocks or curbs, so we should replace the wheel from time to time.

For this reason, it is convenient to have a spare retractable jockey wheel.

How do we take when we’re going?

Once the caravan is connected to the car, the jockey wheel is no longer needed. The correct thing would be to remove it and store it in the trunk of the caravan, so as to make it as accessible as possible when it comes off. Many people (myself included) for comfort leave and put as much as possible.

If we go to your place during the trip, it is important to make sure to tighten the clamp or we may have a disaster if it is cleared on the road. Also this is at least as high as the car hitch. If we take it down, as in the photo, the holes can destroy it (especially if it is hard).
