Do you have a semi-trailer with or without manual steering?
What should I do if my semi-trailer veers from the path of the tractor?
With manual steering:
If you push the button “automatic central position” on your remote control the axles of the semi-trailer will automatically move into the straight-ahead position.
Hold down this button and drive your tractor straight ahead at walking pace and check in the mirrors to see whether the semi-trailer is following the tractor in a straight line.
When the combination is aligned you can release the button.
If you think the alignment is not yet 100% you can manually steer the axles of the semi-trailer to the left or to the right by briefly pushing the steer left or right button on your remote control.
Without manual steering:
Drive your tractor along at walking pace and steer to the left or right until the axles of the semi-trailer move into the straight-ahead position.
You can check whether the markings on the steering arm or on the axle assembly are aligned in relation to each other.
When the axles of the trailer are perfectly straight you can stop and open the 4 valves in the control box.
Now drive the tractor straight in front of the trailer, the axles of the semi-trailer will stay in the straight-ahead position.
When the tractor is straight in front of the semi-trailer you can put the 4 valves in the control box back into the drive position.
The combination is now aligned with each other.
1: position valves closed (driving position)
2: position valves open (aligning)
