No bulges, cuts or abrasions - not rubbing against anything - secured at both ends, no leaks.

LOL...

LOL it's a part that frequently breaks apparently. Plastic fitting the hose connects on breaks, have to easy out the fitting put new one on, connect hose and refill coolant.

Army, tractor and trailer were taken to KW shop in Buffalo. Millis sent driver to drop empty for me, and take load to Avon. Just like Scott described.

The guys who came and got me were great, it's the place across the street from TA Harborcreek if anyone is familiar with it.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I've rescued many a loaded trailer from a dealers repair shop. Companies simply find a driver with the hours to do it that's nearby and change their load plan. A simple relay between drivers. I really really dislike the freightliner dealer in Baltimore. It's a PITA to get to and any towed trailers are parked in a rental lot across the road.

Can't complain at about the wrecker service or the KW shop. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Back on the road, get load info in the am. Have a wonderful evening everyone.

Had a breakdown in New Jersey just the other day.

Fedex had a roadside crew come out and repair a broken airline on my trailer.

Two hours later I was back on the road dancing-dog.gif
