What do you do if your car, truck, minivan, or SUV gets wet in mud or snow? Have you ever wondered how you will turn out? Do you ever almost get stuck and think, what if I get stuck? Getting a trailer can be very expensive, time consuming, and quite embarrassing to get started. There are ways to avoid getting stuck in the first place and tactics to get unstuck without digging a bigger hole and burying your vehicles up to the axles.
If you get stuck in loose snow, sand, dirt, or mud, here’s what to do:
Ask passengers to get out of the vehicle to reduce weight and for safety, if possible and safe to do so;
Roll the wheels back and forth several times to push out snow, sand, mud, etc. out of the way;
Maintain a light touch on the accelerator and go smoothly;
Don’t spin the wheels, you’ll only go deeper;
Rocking the vehicle is another way to get unstuck;
Change from forward to reverse and vice versa;
Each time you put into gear, lightly touch the accelerator until the vehicle starts;
Dig a trench in the front and rear of the rear tires and then put lumber in the trench;
When you get forward momentum, apply it in a low gear;
Do not release the gas unless it comes to a complete stop;
If it stops, go back, collect firewood, and do it again;
When you hit the pavement, check your car and look underneath and make sure there is no damage. You may have broken or broken a brake line or caused cosmetic damage to your vehicles that will need to be repaired and repaired as soon as possible so that parts don’t fly off while driving.
