    It's unfortunate that he lost his personal belongings, but I agree that the company is not entirely to blame here, at least based on what you are telling us. When a shop signs off on a repair, it is still up to the driver to properly inspect the vehicle. Even when my own company mechanics work on my truck, I still check it out when they are done to make sure they didn't accidentally forget something. Chances are the shop messed something up or maybe put the wrong parts on, who knows, but once the driver inspects it and signs off on it, it's pretty much on him. It sucks but that's the way it is.

    1. Were you there?
    2. You are posting 2nd hand information? Meaning you are posting what was passed one-sided to you.
    3. Why is you father not on here posting instead of you?
    4. What was his weight?
    5. What was the posted truck speed?
    6. Was the fire on the trailer or tractor?

    It'd not the company then. Just a sh1tty truck, that needed good 15 min per trip. We had a driver jump out of a truck on the mountain couple weeks ago. Destroyed it, conpletly. You not going to blame the company for that. Will you? Or maybe u will. Who knows

    The reason we are having such a hard time believing what you are saying is that you can not even get your story straight.

    First off we need to know what kind of trailer he was pulling... Dry van, refer, container, tanker etc.

    Second you first stated it was a brake fire and now you say middle compartment. Which is it?

    third you assume that three loud pops are the airbag under the trailer. Hate to tell you this but you only get one loud pop with an airbag. It is basically a really thick balloon.

    When you get your panties unbunched and get the facts straight, please come back and see if we can help.
     
    Rugerfan Thanks this.

    Ok now it is a BBQ. Center compartment is what caught my attention.

    Brakes heat up and damage the seals on the axles which in turn leak onto the shoes and that is what actually catches fire. Brakes do not just spontaneously combust. They are made from a material that does not burn like that. They have to be. Do truck brakes still have asbestos in them?

    Brakes do smoke long before they catch fire. Probably had a brake sticking on one set of duals. You can still tell when you go to shift that the speed drops quicker than normal.

    Sounds to me that daddy is not the driver you make him out to be. And mental anguish? What a bunch of #########. There is nothing in this world that says you have the right to not be sad. Tough luck happens, it has happened to me. How you react is what determines your character.
