Salt River Canyon US60 AZ. At the saftey pullout before the canyon. Yeah i know, I prefer AZ 87 too.
Anyway, came down sunday with empty flatbed and loaner condo truck. Got my midroof back. Sorted out all the equipment as i had not had a chance after coming off coreslab.
Dropped an empty at Queen creek. My load was not done yet. So picked up a loaded trl at queen queen. Then unloaded it and reloaded it (took forever). Now im off to Denver via Albuquerque as that is the routing CMC prefers.
Stopped at the canyon because it was getting dark, and US60 is terrible maxed out and not having visual reference of the terrain ahead. I mean, ive ran some twisty stuff before, but with this kinda weight on this road, i aint doing it. Ive ran it empty at night, but i aint doing it loaded. Ill hit 40 at holbrook and roll on.
Going from Denver to Fontana once I deliver.

dptrucker Thanks this.
I just left the Menasha terminal after getting new batteries.
When I went in I was told it would be tomorrow, even though I was told yesterday that if I got there before noon they would get me in today.
The lady said they do not make appointments and three other trucks came in this morning so they were in front of me.
Then she starts telling me that if I had my 12V cooler running that I could not expect more than 4 hours or so until the low voltage cutoff kicked in, because the truck batteries were not made for that.
I told her otherwise, based on several trucks and many years experience with both new and old batteries.
But they did get me in right away to test the batteries. A couple hours later I went to check on the status and she told me the mechanic was replacing all four batteries. He didn't want to waste time testing them because he was so busy, so decided to just replace them all. He was the only mechanic working today.
Cool. And I was there a total of less than 3 hours.
Porterville ca waiting for loves truck to show up.
Woke up this morning with a flat tire. Glad I wa already at a loves. Took about an hour to get fixed. Made the delivery here to Wal-Mart and broke the blue line when hooking up to trailer. Hate these plastic lines or maybe I am took strong lol
Able to limp out of dc to drive to corner. Parked next to a Lowes with some food options.
Have 4 hrs left on 14. So will stay here if I can't make wheeler ridge. Have a pickup in Taft ca and delivers in woodland ca tomorrow
Delivered in Denver, picked up in Brighton.
And im in the shop in Denver again. 2ndary tank completely drains in 8 mins shut off. Found this out at delivery this morning. Air leak is somewhere near the main distribution block under the hood. But me first and the mechanic in the quicklane couldn't find it despite being loud as all can be. Stated soking everything we could see to get a bubble. Nothing.
So Denver shop is going to take a stab at it in the morning. That friday delivery in Fontana is not looking good. Hopefully i dont have to babysit rebar all weekend.
