    Been swapping from truck to truck for 3 weeks since mines been at CAT for service. Today I pulled into my delivery point and when I was hooking up I realized my air line was missing from the fender of the trailer, so I had to MacGyver this contraption together...the steam inlet Chicago fitting ran into the emergency line from my tractor lol

    And it looks like a fine job to get trailer unloaded?

    Looks good. Never want to forget to unplug that though, it would not decouple on its own, you'd RIP everything off the truck for sure.
