Safety Chain Compliance

Whether you're towing for the first time or you're an experienced tower, you may have some questions or doubts on the requirements of having compliant safety trailer chains. The team at Sunrise are here to help make sure you have the right answers to meet legal requirements. The Legal Requirements of Safety Chains Safety chains are mandatory throughout Australia. They serve to maintain the connection between a trailer and its towing vehicle should there be any coupling failure. The first step in finding the right chain is to understand the term Aggregate Trailer Mass (ATM). The ATM is the total weight of a trailer and its maximum (or full) load when NOT coupled to a vehicle. This figure is commonly stamped onto the trailer VIN plate. Safety chains must be marked in accordance to the relevant Australian Standard and your trailer ATM. Australian Standard for Safety Chains Safety chains are an important component of trailer safety in Australia and must comply with Australian Standards AS 4177.4-1994 or AS 4177.4-2004. These standards outline the requirements for safety chains on trailers and other vehicles that are used for towing. Where Should I Attach Safety Chains? According to these standards, safety chains must be attached to the tow vehicle and the trailer in a way that prevents the trailer from becoming detached in the event of a failure of the tow hitch or other connection. Safety chains must be of a suitable size, strength, and design to prevent the trailer from separating from the tow vehicle. The safety chains must be attached to the tow vehicle and the trailer in such a way that they are taut when the trailer is connected to the tow vehicle, but not so tight that they impede the movement of the trailer. They must also be easily accessible for inspection and maintenance. It's also important to note that safety chains must be visible and not obscured by any other equipment or parts of the trailer or tow vehicle. Where Can i Purchase Safety Chains Sunrise has an extensive range of safety chains. You can view all our safety chains here. What Rating is Required for Safety Chains on Trailers? The standard also specifies the minimum breaking strength of the safety chains, which is typically around 2.5 times the Gross Trailer Mass (GTM) of the trailer. It also specifies the minimum number of safety chains that must be used, which is typically two. Your trailer ATM will help to determine which safety chain you will need. See the guide below to help you find your suitable safety chain: ATM less than or equal to 2.5T If your trailer ATM does not exceed 2.5 tonnes, you must have at least one safety chain complying and stamped with Australian Standard AS 4177.4-1994 or Australian Standard AS 4177.4-2004 “Caravan and light trailer towing components, Part 4: Safety chains up to 3500 kg capacity”. 2.5T < ATM ≤ 3.5T If your trailer ATM is over 2.5 tonnes but does NOT exceed 3.5 tonnes, you must have two safety chains complying and stamped with Australian Standard AS 4177.4-1994 or Australian Standard AS 4177.4-2004 “Caravan and light trailer towing components, Part 4: Safety chains up to 3500 kg capacity”. ATM > 3.5T If your trailer ATM is over 3.5 tonnes, the safety chain must be permanently attached to the trailer; shackles are not permitted. The safety chain must not be welded to the draw bar. Alternatively, a plate welded to the draw bar, or an appropriate device like the Hammerlock Hook may be used. You must have two safety chains made of steel. They must have a minimum 800 MPa breaking stress that conforms to the mechanical properties of Grade T chain. This is specified in Australian Standards AS 2321-1979 “Short Link Chain for Lifting Purposes (Non Calibrated)“. Alternatively, safety cables with equal capacity to the relevant safety chains may be used on towing vehicles with ATM up to 3.5T.   Note: Any trailer without breakaway brakes must be fitted with safety chains that are marked in accordance with relevant Australian standards depending on your trailer ATM. Contact your local Sunrise store for more information on your trailer safety chains and trailer ATM. We are always happy to help, visit us in store where a team member can assist with any enquiries you may have.

LED Light Wiring Instructions

Wiring the lights on your trailer in Australia is not only important for safety, but it is also a legal requirement. In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of trailer light wiring in Australia, the tools and materials you'll need, and tips for troubleshooting common wiring issues. What Lighting do I Need on my Trailer? The Australian Design Rules (ADR) regulates the lighting and markings for all types of vehicles, including trailers. According to ADR, trailer lights must include a brake light, a tail light, a license plate light, and a side marker light, as well as an indicator light for each direction of travel. The most common type of trailer light wiring in Australia is the 7-pin flat system. This system includes the basic lights such as tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals, as well as a center pin for the electric brakes. It also includes a pin for a reverse light, which is mandatory to have in Australia. How to Wire a Trailer Plug Gather the necessary tools and materials: You will need a 7-pin flat trailer plug, a trailer wiring harness, a crimping tool, wire cutters, and electrical tape. Locate the wiring harness on your vehicle: The wiring harness for the trailer plug is typically located near the rear of the vehicle. Consult the vehicle's owner manual for the exact location. Cut the wiring harness: Using wire cutters, cut the wiring harness to the appropriate length to reach the trailer plug. Crimp the wires: Use the crimping tool to attach the wires from the wiring harness to the corresponding pins on the trailer plug. Make sure to match the correct wire colors to the correct pins. Test the lights: Once the wiring is complete, test the lights on the trailer to ensure they are functioning properly. Secure the connections: Use electrical tape to secure all connections and to protect them from the elements. To wire the lights on your trailer, you will need a 7-pin flat trailer plug, a trailer wiring harness, and the appropriate wiring diagram for your vehicle. You will also need basic tools such as wire cutters, crimpers, and electrical tape. When wiring your trailer lights, it's essential to ensure that all connections are clean and secure. Loose connections can cause the lights to malfunction or not work at all. Also, it's important to make sure that the wiring is correctly color-coded according to the ADR standards, as incorrect color-coding can lead to dangerous situations on the road. If you experience any issues with your trailer lights, the first step is to check the connections to ensure they are clean and secure. If the problem persists, you can check the wiring diagram for your vehicle and trailer to see if you've made any mistakes. Another common issue is a blown fuse, so make sure to check that as well. The Importance of Connections Trailer plugs are an essential connecter between your car and any additional unpowered towing vehicle. Anything from a trailer, caravan, campervan, boat trailer to a horsebox. All objects in tow must have a plug connection to be inserted into the socket of your car. This electrical link ensures all lights, brakes and any additional attachments receive power. Basic lighting connections include the left-hand indicator, right hand indicator, brake lights, taillights and side lights. Trying to constantly monitor your trailer lights while driving is not practical, therefore having the correct connections is vital for safe, secure towing and peace of mind. Connectors are a mandatory component on any trailer in Australia, with standardized colours on all core wiring. The most commonly used is the 7 pin plugs. These are available flat or round, the latter available in the large type 1 connector with a 20mm PCD or the small Type 2 connector with a 13mm PCD. Wiring your trailer can be quite confusing, so we’ve made sure our plugs at Sunrise are straight forward and simple to follow. You can view all our Electricals, lights and plugs here. Refer to the table below to better understand what each wire connects to.   Need a hand? Chat with one of our experienced staff to find the perfect plug for your needs.

Bearing Numbers and Information

Bearings are commonly used in trailer parts such as between your brake drum, discs or hubs. They consist of two parts, the cup and the cone, which are pressed into the hub to aid smooth, rolling rotation for your wheels during towing. In each hub, there are two pairs of bearings, one for the outer and one for the inner, both of which have one cup and one cone. The outer bearings pair (closest to the curb) are the smallest and the inner bearing pair (closest to the trailer) are the larger bearings. The inner bearings are matched with an oil/grease seal to perfectly fit and prevent lubricants from escaping the bearings. In each hub, there are two pairs of bearings, one for the outer and one for the inner, which each have one cup and one cone. When building or repairing a trailer, bearings can be a complex part to break down. Using the table below, we’ve provided a chart which provides information to find out which bearings you need. It includes bearing numbers, the OD (outer diameter) and ID (inner diameter) as well as the width, which should make finding the part you need as easy as possible. How to Check What Bearings I Need? If you're looking to find the trailer bearing numbers on your trailer, there are a few different ways to go about it. Here are a few tips to help you locate the information you need: Check the owner's manual: Many trailers come with an owner's manual that includes information about the bearings. If you still have the manual, it's worth checking to see if the bearing numbers are listed. Look for a label or sticker: Many trailers have a label or sticker on them that includes the bearing numbers. This label or sticker may be located on the axles or on the frame of the trailer. Inspect the bearings: If you can't find the bearing numbers through the above methods, you may need to inspect the bearings themselves. The bearing numbers are typically stamped on the bearings. Contact the manufacturer: If you're still having trouble finding the bearing numbers, you can contact the manufacturer of your trailer. They should be able to provide you with the information you need. Use online resources: Lastly, you can try searching online for resources that can help you find the bearing numbers on your trailer. There are many forums, FAQ sections, and online guides available that can help you find the information you need. The Importance of Bearing Maintenance Let's discuss the importance of regular maintenance for trailer bearings. Trailer bearings should be inspected and lubricated at least once a year, or more frequently if you use your trailer frequently or for long distances. This can be done by a professional mechanic or by yourself, with the right tools and knowledge. When inspecting your trailer bearings, look for signs of wear and tear such as discoloration, rust, or damage to the seals. If you notice any of these issues, it's time to replace the bearings. It's also important to note that if you experience issues with vibration or noise while towing your trailer, this could be a sign that your bearings need to be replaced. Picking The Right Bearings When it comes to choosing the right bearings for your trailer, there are a few factors to consider. The first thing to consider is the size and weight of your trailer. The bearings that are suitable for a small utility trailer may not be suitable for a large horse trailer. It's also important to consider the type of terrain and weather conditions your trailer will be exposed to, as this can affect the durability of the bearings. Another important factor to consider when choosing trailer bearings is the quality of the bearings. It's important to choose bearings from a reputable manufacturer that are known for their durability and quality. Avoid buying low-quality bearings as they may not last as long and can cause more damage to your trailer in the long run.
