The type of winter truck accessories that your fleet needs will vary depending on where you live in the United States. In the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic, snow plow accessories are a must.
But if you live in South Texas, odds are you’ll need a different set of truck parts and accessories. While winter may not get as severe in Texas as it does in other regions of the U.S., that doesn’t mean that you should forego equipping your fleet with other types of useful truck accessories like the ones we have at Camco Wheel & Axle.
Today, we’re going to take a look at what types of truck accessories you need to ensure that your next project isn’t made any more challenging by winter weather conditions.
Winter Commercial Truck Accessories Perfect for South Texas
1. Tonneau Covers
These essential accessories are mounted on the front end or rear of your truck. Tonneau covers coat the bed of your truck and are great at protecting your toolbox, tools, and other equipment that you may store from the cold, rainy conditions of south Texas winters.
Tonneau covers even add a layer of protection from snow and sleet for fleet owners in northern regions of Texas where snow does fall. These covers are well worth the investment, offering solid returns by preserving your equipment and ensuring the bed of your work truck does not rust.
There’s nothing worse than a dead truck battery when it’s cold and rainy outside. For one, your project gets put on hold, meaning a loss of money. Then there are the additional costs that go into purchasing a new battery or getting your fleet vehicle towed back to your office.
Save yourself, and your company, from all that hassle and equip your work trucks with portable jump starters. With cold cranking amps, jumpstarting the vehicle to get it back to work is made easier, more efficient, and cost-effective.
Better to be safe than sorry.
These are handy pieces of equipment to carry in your truck, just in case. It’s no secret that cold weather can slowly drain your tire pressure, and if your field team isn’t careful, they could end up with a flat – or worse – in an accident caused by deflated tires.
Save yourself the hassle—and potential liability—and equip your work trucks with portable air compressors.
The Rio Grande Valley is no stranger to fog, especially during the winter and spring months. If your worker is caught without proper illumination, it could spell disaster as they travel on rural roads.
Fog lights are useful in this scenario as they offer extra lighting during a bout of thick fog. Good fog lights will enhance your worker’s visibility, keeping them safe as they travel to their next job site or back to HQ.
Winches are actually multi-seasonal pieces of equipment, meaning they are good to have throughout the whole year. You never know when you could use a winch, and it’s always better to have one than not.
Imagine traveling to a job site that is only accessible through a narrow farm road. A recent downpour can make roads like this soft and difficult to gain traction on. Should a fleet truck veer off the road, that could leave your field personnel in a bit of a jam.
A good winch can help to get them out of a predicament in a jiffy.
