Ran into the same issue as last week only this time I couldn't loop anything around it. Door was loose and wouldn't secure shut. Gorilla tape helped me this time. It didn't even budge. It has also gotten me out of a jam with an air leak in the hose in the past. Normally I carry the thicker kind but didn't have it on me. For the newbies, I'd recommend getting a roll of it, you never know when it just might help you.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I always have a roll of the heavy duty. Has saved mr a couple times when an unload hose has started to bubble or pops a small hole. Nothing worse then being 1/4 way through an unload and have a hose go and be stuck.

It makes a great temporary and quick patch for a torn tarp also.

A little off topic, but not completely. Occasionally, I'll be sent from a load to a pickup with a trailer that is of unknown condition. In addition to the obligatory broom (no - they didn't buy it for me), i always have some WrigleyWeld (Juicy Fruit, DoubleMint - any of the white colored chewing gums) in my cab. It's perfect for patching small openings that would otherwise bolo a decent trailer (sheared rivet, small gap in wood floor, etc)... simply chew it up, apply where needed, and voila! Water proof, virtually indestructible and mostly permanent. It blends in with the white interior walls, and can be used on floors with a slight application of dust to blend it in, until I can get the DVIR in and a proper caulk application. I have caulk onboard as well, but it takes longer to set up.

Using chewing gum... Now that's thinking outside the box.

Lol, if I need a food grade trailer that's had a few rivets popped I just drive to the closest Love's and say "Fix This Please" and they just charge my company's account. I do keep caulk and sometimes just fix it myself, but for when I've run out of it and can't find a place nearby to replace it.. actually my company doesn't want us repairing ANYTHING ourselves.
