    He didn't say its cheap. He said its not much more then just the filter.

    Get a kerosene torpedo heater. Tarp off as much as you can and blow heat under the whole truck back as far as the air tanks. Ifyou have water inthe lines the could be 100 blockages

    Yup the whole dryer,...I had problems with heating elements in the air dryer on my truck,....Because I had bought a new one they stood behind the warranty, Going so far as to not charge for a road service call when another heating element went out and they had to come out and bypass the dryer so I could get back to the shop,..He77 after that they even gave me the fittings so I could bypass the filter on the road to get it home and fix it if it happened again,.......At least I had a great local shop while I was at it,.......

    Any Luck? Use a little propane torch to heat the dryer, tanks ,ect.... Just do not melt anything. That is what I do.
