    My next fuel stop is also the TA in Boise, then I t-call my next load in West Valley.
    I won't get there until Sunday, however.

    I'm at the Sumner terminal. I got here yesterday at around 1400 to get the truck in the shop for an air leak.
    They had it fixed early this afternoon, but there were trucks blocking me fore and aft in the shop so I didn't get it out until around 1500.
    They had 3 trucks in the 'fast lane' with mine in the middle, even though I was the first truck here yesterday with the easiest problem to fix.
     
    dptrucker Thanks this.

    Sparks terminal.
    Ended up doing a 34 reset at the west valley terminal.
    Picked up a load down the street from there this morning that goes to Modesto ca for a 7am delivery on weds.
    Preplan said to pick it up at 1700. Called dm about licking it up early. he called
    csr and they said it was ready now.
    Was planning on stopping in winnamucca since it's about halfway but decided to come here since it should be a bit cooler.
    Stopped at the walnart in winnamucca for my 30 minute to do so.e shopping.
     
    dwells40 Thanks this.

    I had my t-call removed and I'm taking this load to Pueblo, CO, delivering tomorrow morning. I thought it would be better to deliver there than Salt Lake, and the miles were nice.

    The plug to my Coleman cooler fried yesterday.
    I had replaced the last one because the plug went out, along with something else since replacing the plug didn't work. This one is less than a month old, and it blew a fuse after the first few days.
    The replacement plug worked, but it would not maintain a connection in the socket because the socket was also a bit fried.
    I had to move it up to a front socket.
    In the morning I tried it in the sleeper socket again. After about 2 minutes it was too hot to touch, when it was barely warm after being plugged in up front all night.
    It has always run very hot in that socket in the sleeper, with a few coolers. I guess I should have tested the cooler with other sockets, because it seems that one has always been bad.
     
    dptrucker Thanks this.

    It may happen the next time I get a new truck, but I rather prefer the cooler.
