    Air dryer froze up again,two seperate shops in two different states (not TA petro)replaced the same part with the same failure last winter and the winter before,
    I paused for a minute,pulled the voltemeter and checked for voltage at the heater plug and my suspicion was confirmed:no power.
    Im not angry just surprised how two professional mechanics can overlook a very simple task.

    No shop is going to cover a two years mistake for a small job like that especially after somebody else worked on it.

    There are very few mechanics out here anymore, mostly just part changers.
