I can’t catch a break lately, I swear sometimes. rofl-1.gif

I just got off home time, picked this load up from our yard in West Memphis, AR. I get about 100 miles down the road when boom a trailer tire blows out, not even a little bit. Fully blown out, if I would’ve kept going, the rubber around the rim would’ve just flew off, and it’d be just a rim.

Currently waiting for roadside assistance. What a great way to start my day. dancing-banana.gif

Trailers don't get the maintenance they should. Drivers have a trailer for only a day or so, so they will shine on getting tires replaced. (2 hours for a tire = 100 mile$.)

"Shine" on???

or... "Shade" on.... LoL~

Tom's OOS'd more trailers than I can count. The mechanic at the Mt. V yard HATES him. (And I hope FAB reads this!)

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'm not sure if you are making a joke about shine or shade, or if "shine on", meaning "skip this part", is an obsolete term these days. Ok, just skip this.

At least you'll be moving soon. Yesterday 5-20 I delivered at 05:30, headed for my next load a few miles down the road the stop engine light and engine light started flashing, I lost oil pressure and the truck shut off...going uphill...in a construction zone...two left lanes closed...with no right shoulder. I managed to find a spot of land at the beginning of an exit. So right now I'm sitting in a hotel in Steubenville Ohio. Hopefully the oil separator will come in today. The entire underside of my truck is dripping with oil from front to back as well as the front of the trailer being coated. It only lost 8 gallons in the six hours I had driven since my pretrip the night before. At least a day and a half down. On the plus side, boy is this bed comfy!!! Lmao

I blew my first steer not that long ago, scared the living hell out of me.
