    And my "luck" continues....less than an hour away from the consignee it's raining pretty hard here in northern Ohio..all the sudden my drivers side windshield wiper decides to stop working. So, I'm on the shoulder of the VERY BUSY highway trying to fix it myself, to no avail. Now waiting for road service to get here to repair it....

    The plus side, is they have a pre-plan all ready for me.........if I ever get there.

    I'm at wits-end with this truck and I'm not even driving it. :biggrin_2556: Warp, I commend you for your positive attitude, as I know most would have left by now. Not a good first couple of weeks. But I assure you, once your truck's running >95%, you'll be very happy. So sorry bro! Keep your chin up.

    So, the service guy came out and it was only a loose nut/bolt holding it on....2 minutes with a wrench and I was back in business....$213 for that 2 minutes...if I was an O/O, I suppose I'd have looked harder. I saw one bolt, checked it and it was tight. I did NOT see the other one...they hired me as a driver, not a mechanic :biggrin_25523:

    Anyways, I finally got back on the road and got the load delivered. I was sent a message to leave the trailer and bobtail into PA to get a lease trailer for a load somewhere else in PA....got as far as North Lima, OH and called it a night. Good thing, since I got here it's been snowing like crazy! looks like it's easing up now, or maybe turning to rain.....boy, what a week!!

    Lynch, I have to have a positive attitude or I'd have gone crazy by now! I leave all the doom and gloom to my wife...LOL

    It's obvious this truck wasn't taken care of very well by the previous drivers. They should of had it in the shop for some of the things I've already had taken care of, not to mention the mechanical things.

    No, I think it's somewhere in the LA area. I forgot the exact name of the city.

    Deserted. You will have a old Columbia from the sounds of that number! Hate to say this, but she's probably been rode hard and put away wet by plenty.

    Nawlin's how come they're picking on you now?? What's wrong with a job that involves not living in a truck guys?
     
    rednek Thanks this.
