Winterize

Be Prepared 

Our beautiful spacious state comes with a price.. You could get stuck in a remote area. So, its important to keep an emergency kit on hand, especially during the winter.  Make sure you have the following.

  • Flashlight & spare batteries

    Orion Extreme Weather Roadside Emergency Kit

    Everything you need in an roadside emergency

  • Booster Cables
  • Winter Gloves & Blankets
  • Ice Scraper
  • Flares
  • First aid kit
  • Small shovel
  • Some sand for traction
  • Bottled water & high energy snack bars
  • Bag of salt or kitty litter

 

Check your tires. How is the tread?  Normally , good tread is 2/32”  (or the top of Lincoln’s head in a penny). 

During the winter, you’ll  want more tread… especially if you drive a lot in snow. If you have  6/32” (Lincoln’s eyes on a penny), you are in good shape.

 During the winter, air pressure is lower. Properly inflated tires will give you more traction and save fuel.  Top off the air pressure and check it often.

Clearing  Your  Windshields 

Polar Windshield Washer Concentrate

use concentrated Windshield Washer to adjust for temperature.

 

Don’t freeze up. Fill your washers with windshield washer fluid appropriate for colder weather.  As the temperature drops, the concentration of washer fluid to water should be higher to avoid freezing.
