Wet seat

double-quotes-start.png

Yes it’s a freightliner. I’m beginning to think it does need an exorcism. It has random issues that go away I can’t explain it. I can tell you that the truck appears to be previously wrecked due to the bumper being repainted and the rim scratches But the only thing that has been placed in the seat is a safety vest and paperwork.

What year is your truck? I drive a 2023 Freightliner and with the slightest imperfections in the road, I am feeling it much more than my 2020 Volvo. The Freightliner gets to shaking at acceleration sometimes. That's just a Freightliner. Intuition tells me that you don't have anything wrong with your truck and that you are being hypercritical of things you perceive to be issues. It's good to have an alertness for things that could be issues. But, once the truck is checked out and determined to be ready to drive, get out there and drive. Sometimes a shop won't fix a problem the first time, so it's ok to speak up when a problem is still there. You have to be able to articulate what the issue is and the shop has to be able to pinpoint the issue. 90+% of the time, when there really is an issue with these trucks, a sensor picks something up and a diagnostic system fault code is thrown. Sometimes the check engine light will come on. Obviously there is that roughly 10%, but I don't think that's where your truck is. I think you are overly concerned about nothing. That's my intuition. I could absolutely be wrong, so tale my words with a grain of salt.

That seat didn't wet itself and you acknowledged that it hadn't been raining. Maybe a shop tech got it wet?

It’s a 2021 with 340000 that appears to have been driven very roughly. The tech could have gotten something on the seat. I could be being overly cautious. It has its issues but one by one I’ll figure out what they are. My first one sprung a leak on the fuel rail so they put me in this one bc of a shortage of parts for that issue. Thanks for the input about the leaky windshields I’ll keep an eye on that and see if that contributes to the wet seat regardless I’m just thankful it’s not the drivers seat.

Wet seat

I noticed last night my passenger side seat is wet. No one sits in it and it hasn’t had any kind of liquid sitting on it. If it was cleaned before I got the truck it has had plenty of time to dry as it sat in the shop for 2 weeks. It hasn’t rain while I’ve driven it but it did rain before I drove it out. The window was not down and there is no indication of water visible any where else that I can see

Having Issues with the Offset (45°Angle) and the 90 I need some advice on how to understand these maneuvers

Schneider has a good video for the 45. I can’t help with the 90 or offset bc in school it was great and easy but still struggling to conquer it out here in the wild. Only advice I can give is slow down and don’t beat yourself up over it you are still learning.

Steer tire issue

They aligned it replaced a shock balanced tires and still has a small shake. I cannot duplicate the slack again. I’m wondering if the shake could be from driving on the tires for I know around 200 miles with no balance on one tire.

Steer tire issue

The steering wheel has a vibration after the tire was balanced and pulls to the right. The steering wheel also goes limp while driving straight it will give a 1/4 turn slack with no response. The shop can’t duplicate it

Steer tire issue

The passenger side didn’t have any weights on it for balance. Will that cause the tire to rub on the side wall though
