I woke up this morning sweating because my truck derated due to a DEF issue and a fuel pressure problem.

The temp was already in the 80s and quickly climbed. The temp inside the truck seemed to climb even quicker.

It ended up being 11 hours from the time I called break down until I ended up getting a tow.

That sounds MISERABLE! Any idea how long it's going to be down?

11 hours?? Ick! Yes, everyone should always keep water in their truck. I have some in the fridge, and in a cabinet and keep another case in the sidebox.

Not sure. Freightliner is closed today so I won't hear anything until tomorrow.

I keep two cases of one liters under the bunk. Plus whatever I'm currently drinking at the moment.
