14 Tips to keep Your HOWO truck in a good condition for Autumn and Winter

Cold weather HOWO truck preparation. Four words should be at the top of all circumpolar latitude driver’s lists as the start of autumn is just around the bend. Leaves are starting to turn and we’ve already begun to experience a few nights and days with cooler temperatures. Fall is the perfect time to begin thinking about and preparing your HOWO truck for colder temperatures and the coming winter months.

To help you adequately equip your HOWO truck for cold weather, snow, ice, and those howling winter winds, we’ve provided a checklist with 14 tips that will help you be prepared.

Wash off all the bugs and anything from your windshield that could hinder visibility. It’s a great time to also clean out the inside because you may be less motivated to do it when the weather turns.

Your wipers need to be replaced every 6 months to a year. Older wipers will tend to make less contact with your window and may squeak as they’re going and only end up smearing your window. In that case, you’re actually decreasing visibility instead of improving it.

If you find that your heater is not working properly, you’ll want to make sure you have your mechanic address those issues before you have to deal with cold and freezing temperatures. Also be sure to make sure your defroster is working correctly.

Have your mechanic check for and replace worn and torn belts and hoses.

Ask your mechanic what type of oil is the best for your HOWO truck in the winter.

You will want to be prepared with sufficient antifreeze, washer fluid, etc for the coming winter weather.

Do you have the appropriate tires to handle potential winter hazards? Are your tires in good enough condition? Neglecting your HOWO truck’s need for good tires could be devastating. Tires that are losing their tread are going to be extremely dangerous in rain, snow, or ice.

The amount of tire pressure will affect the traction and handling of your HOWO truck. Because cold weather will cause the pressure in your tires to contract, you want to be monitoring them to make sure they’re properly inflated. Check your spare tire to make sure it is also sufficiently inflated.

This will help your tires last longer and provide for safer handling as you drive. It can also help improve gas mileage.

You know how vital good brakes are any time of year, but they’re especially important when cooler temperatures bring the potential of rain, snow, and ice. If needed, have your mechanic replace rotors and brake pads to ensure your safety this winter.

Make sure its posts and connections are free of corrosion. Have it tested to see how much charge it can hold, especially if it’s more than a few years old. You do not want to end up stranded in the cold with a dead battery if you can help it. Replace your battery if needed.

Especially in heavy fog or snow, you’ll need all the light you can get. If the plastic on your headlights has become hazy, it’s a good idea to have them buffed and polished to ensure that they’ll be shining as bright as possible.

While it’s never good for your fuel pump to run it too low in any season, driving with low fuel especially in the winter is not safe. Should you end up stranded somewhere in the winter, having sufficient fuel would keep you warm longer as you wait for help.

Here are some of the key items you should consider including in your HOWO truck:

Ice scraper;First aid kit;Flares;Jumper cables;Small shovel;Basic tool kit;Spare tire and tire;changing equipment;Flashlight and extra batteries;Water;Lighter;Gloves, extra boots, warm clothes, blanket

We hope this list gives you a jump-start into getting your HOWO truck winter for this fall and winter.
