Cleaning your towbar correctly

CleaningCleaning your towbar properly is a lot easier than one might think. Being the commodity it is, a towbar often gets dirty quite fast. Since no one enjoys dirt stains on their trousers having loaded the boot of the car, the towbar should be cleaned from time to time. Splashing it with water is often enough using the water tube or the watering can. Care products must not bei used. When greasing the trailer coupling please consider that this is not recommended whenever vibration dampers are in use. The used greasing would restrict the functionality of the dampers.

When it comes to the mounting of the detachable towbar, cleaning it with water is sufficient. The mounting has been constructed in a way where no dirt can stick to it so that no further cleaning is necessary. However, this is different concerning the socket, whose inside should not be cleaned with water. Clearly, this is not only not conducive for the electronic but also not necessary since the inside of the socket rarely gets dirty, if at all. Should  there, however, be dirt using a soft towel is best to clean the socket’s inside.
