Yeah, that was a definite "Aw ****" moment. Not surprising they didn't report it on the post trip

Holy hell that looks way too bad for an emergency brake to me. looks more like someone didn't care that their wheels were ice locked and just took off in the morning and dragged it until it started turning

Very possible. It was just the 2 on the rear, passenger side. The others were good. I didn't see that when I picked the trailer up, I guess that was facing down. The load that I had to drop my trailer then wait for a phone call, it took 11 hours to get 21 pallets of dog food loaded at Mars petcare in West Jefferson Ohio. Later driving with the window down I heard a thump thump thump echoing off the concrete wall and pulled over to look and there it was. Someone had to have know they did that.

No clue.. they kinda 'escorted him' to the OSHP right around the corner. That was the ONLY escort WE saw.. no beacons, banners, nothing!

We stick w/ boxes (in boxes) here, LoL~!

Saw this on a Mack beside me between the gas tanks and the wheels. There is one on each side, trailer is a dry van so no reefer. Little leg things touch the ground. Has to be a tank for something but their purpose eludes me. WTF??

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

Mikey B, That is a salt spreader. We used them back in the 60's-70's when I drove in NJ. You take off the cap, fill with rock salt or sand, flip a switch in cab when extra traction was needed and it spread the sand in front of the drive tires. I used to love them. Thanks for that pic and also mine were also on a fleet of Macks.
