    So went to pick up my best paying load to date. 550 miles 3200. 30k pounds. Tarped but whatever. Took 5 hours to load me. Always a catch. 300 miles down the road I hear a pop and my air drops fast! Pull over. Some sort of blanket or shirt got caught on my drive linen ripped all my air hoses, abs lines, diff air line out. And man it's STUCK in the yoke. This is my 1st time being towed in 15 years! Luckily they only charged me 750. It was a 40 mile tow. I'm guessing the repair bill will be somewhere around 10k

    Thats a shame. I hope your repair bill isnt anywhere near your estimate and your back on the road sooner than later.

    That sucks. Never know do we? I hope they get you going, and get to stay on the load, deliver a day or two late. Hope the total cost is $3500 or less. Put it behind you quick. Good Luck.
