From Miller to You
Thank you and congratulations on choosing Miller. Now you can get
the job done and get it done right. We know you don’t have time to do
it any other way.
That’s why when Niels Miller first started building arc welders in 1929,
he made sure his products offered long-lasting value and superior
quality. Like you, his customers couldn’t afford anything less. Miller
products had to be more than the best they could be. They had to be the
best you could buy.
Today, the people that build and sell Miller products continue the
tradition. They’re just as committed to providing equipment and service
that meets the high standards of quality and value established in 1929.
This Owner’s Manual is designed to help you get the most out of your
Miller products. Please take time to read the Safety precautions. They
will help you protect yourself against potential hazards on the worksite.
We’ve made installation and operation quick
and easy. With Miller you can count on years
of reliable service with proper maintenance.
And if for some reason the unit needs repair,
there’s a Troubleshooting section that will
help you figure out what the problem is. The
Miller is the first welding parts list will then help you to decide the
equipment manufacturer in exact part you may need to fix the problem.

TRAILER TOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
TRAILER TOWING can be hazardous.
WARNING
In trailer towing, as in most driving situations, exposure to certain hazards occurs. Trailer towing is safe when
precautions are taken. The following safety information is only a summary of the more complete information found in
the Safety Standards listed at the end of these precautions. Read and follow all Safety Standards. In addition, the
end user must check and comply with all federal, state, and local laws before use.
HAVE ALL INSTALLATION, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR WORK PERFORMED ONLY BY
QUALIFIED PEOPLE.

1. Use a towing vehicle prepared and capable of handling the load.
2. Towing any trailer requires special awareness because of the
changed driving situation.
3. When towing, it takes longer to start, stop, and pass − use
training and practice to avoid accidents.
4. Turning and backing up present new problems − plan ahead.
5. Require each driver to be fully trained and experienced in trailer
towing before going out on the road.
6. Holes are provided for mounting weld/power generator.
7. Be sure trailer is fully prepared and connected to towing vehicle.
8. Observe maximum speed of 45 mph (72 kph) when towing.
9. Do not modify or change the trailer in any way − changes void the
warranty. Read Owner’s Manual.
10. Use only genuine factory parts as replacements.
11. Adjust load on trailer so tongue weight is approximately 10% of
the gross trailer weight and center load side-to-side to reduce
fishtailing.
12. Tighten all parts, bolts, nuts, and mounting hardware.
OVERLOADING can cause serious injury or
equipment damage.

1. Do not overload the trailer.
2. The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is the maximum total
trailer weight with the engine driven welding generator and all
equipment, such as tools, cables, and shielding gas cylinder,
installed.
3. The Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) is the maximum
load-bearing capacity of the axle(s).
4. Weigh trailer − adjust weight by removing accessory equipment if
necessary − call local authorities for nearest scale location.
5. Use gross trailer weight to select a proper towing vehicle.
UNCONTROLLED TILTING OF TRAILER can result
in personal injury or equipment damage.
1. Install generator according to Owner’s Manual with engine end
toward hitch end of trailer.

3. Tongue weight is the amount of trailer weight that rests on the
towing vehicle hitch − that is, the downward pressure on the
coupler.
4. Remove or adjust trailer load to get correct tongue weight.
5. Do not let tongue weight exceed coupler and hitch rating.
6. Use slower speeds when towing a trailer − never above 45 mph
(72 km/h) − to prevent fishtailing.

1. Always use safety chains when towing.
2. Cross safety chains under coupling to prevent tongue from
dropping to ground.
3. Allow only enough slack for tight turns.
4. Do not let safety chains drag on ground.
5. Twist safety chains equally from hook ends to take up slack.
6. Use safety chains rated equal to or greater than twice the
maximum gross trailer weight rating.

1. Be sure towing vehicle hitch is correct type, size, and rating to
match coupler.
2. Be sure the hitch is properly installed onto towing vehicle.
3. On optional ball couplers, always insert hitch safety pin before
towing.
4. Make sure hitch and ball are properly sized and match each
other.

Position chock snugly behind tire.
Place chock square to the tire.
Tap chock into place.
For added protection, chock both sides of tire.
UNEXPECTED TILTING OF TRAILER can cause
injury and damage.
1. When trailer is uncoupled from towing vehicle, use jack on front
and block rear to prevent tilting.
2. Use proper blocks that are large enough and able to support the
necessary weight.
3. Always chock the wheels when uncoupled.
INCORRECTLY WORKING LIGHTS can cause
accidents.
Tail, Stop, And
Turn Lights
1. State and Federal regulations require trailers used on highways
to have tail, stop, turn, and side marker lights.
2. Lights are not required for trailers designed for off-road use only.
3. Check all lights and connectors for proper installation and
operation before using the trailer.
4. Check condition of wiring harness leads, plugs, and connections
regularly. Repair or replace damaged parts or wires.
Side Marker Lights
5. Replace any broken lenses, reflectors, or bulbs.
INCORRECT TORQUE on lug nuts or INCORRECT
TIRE PRESSURE or BEARING MAINTENANCE can
cause loss of control resulting in serious injury
and equipment damage.

1. Recheck lug nut torque after first 50 miles (80 km) and once each
year or every 12,000 miles (19,500 km) thereafter, whichever
comes first.
2. When checking lug nuts, keep them clean, dry, and unlubricated.
3. Check and repack wheel bearings once each year or every
12,000 miles (19,500 km), whichever comes first.
4. Maintain correct tire pressure according to sidewall data on tire −
underinflation is the most common cause of tire trouble.
5. Check tires for wear every six months.
6. Use only replacement tires of the same size, rating, and capacity.
INOPERATIVE
SURGE-TYPE BRAKES OR
WRONG BREAKAWAY CABLE CONNECTION can
cause accidents.
1. Check brake fluid level before use.
2. Do not use sway control devices − keep coupler free to telescope
during braking.
3. Always connect breakaway cable to towing vehicle − be sure it
has a direct free pull.
4. Do not wrap cable around safety chains, tongue, wiring, or any
other parts.
5. The breakaway cable automatically applies the trailer brakes if
separation occurs.

2. If necessary, always replace any fastener with one of equal
size, grade, and type.
3. Be sure the grade marks on replacement fastener match the
original bolt. The manufacture’s identification mark is not critical
and does not matter for the replacement fastener.
PRE-TOWING CHECKLIST
Check gross trailer weight, tongue weight, and total weight distribution − do not overload this trailer.
Check that the correct hitch is properly installed on towing vehicle.
When coupling, check that coupler locking device (safety pin), safety chains, and breakaway cable (if applicable) are properly connected.
Check that tires are properly inflated and that wheel nuts are properly torqued.
If applicable, check that all lights are working properly.
