    So..
    Mechanic is here, told him what I have checked.
    He’s checking same thing as if I was a total moron.
    I’m going to sit back and maintain complete composure.
    Woo Sah.

    Yep.
    It’s made me unable to get out of bed before, had to roll into the floor and turn and pull myself up with arms on the bed.
    It wasn’t that bad this time.

    Got the truck started, jumped off the starter with the old push button trick.
    Said same thing I did, it’s gotta be a relay somewhere,
    Drove it to shop, Freightliner is ready, fridge in it decided it was going out.
    So I had to move the fridge from KW, I just bought with lunch meat into it.
    Now it’s raining bad.
    I’m going to get the freaking load, they can’t hold me down, not long anyway..

    Man, Wisconsin was the bomb......My weekend at Lake Superior was restful and happy. So nice to see families having picnics, playing in the water, (they have a dock with a roped off swimming area and a diving board.....so cool) and playing on the playground.
    The Federallies were less generous with an overweight ticket, (totally deserved.....totally my fault), and a fixit ticket for the ABS. But, they were kind nevertheless and we had a fairly pleasant tete-a-tete.
    Went to Chicagoland from there, (natch), got unloaded on time and loaded at 0800 for a 1700 live load, (which was a pleasant surprise because Chicago folks tend to err on the hiney hole side). And that put me in Atlanta a day early......
    "Hey man, this stuff ain't due until 1000 tomorrow...."
    "Please? This is my ride home."
    "15 door....."
    "Thanks, man."

    So, I got Goldie in the shop this morning to fix the ABS and my amber engine light. Kinda sick to my stomach thinking about what the bill will be.
    But, there's beer in the fridge, and good thoughts all around. So, it was another successful tour.

    Hiney hole side??? That's tooooo Wisconsin of a phrase.

    Amber check engine light, really need to be fixed?

    Or is it tied to the abs?

    I don't know, been looking at it for 2 years, I always thought it was just a error in the dash, but since having a service done about a month ago, the problems started to pop up. Actually, I'm thinking the guy screwed up my fuel filter or put the wrong one on. Today on the way to the shop I was making a (legal) U turn and tried to down shift from 6 to 5 and when I pressed on the accelerator, I got NOTHING. Rolled on for a few more seconds, and she came back to life.
    It's got to be repaired and I'd rather do it while I'm home than in a motel somewhere after I pay the $400 tow.

    Abs light on trailers back on. Tried to push sensors in. No luck this time. The brackets broken on one. Loose fit. I glued it on with liquid tape. Held for a while. I have a new sleeve for it now, bent the prongs fir a tighter fit. High heat silicone this time. Next time JB weld. Till I do the brakes, then it just needs to be welded about 2”.
