    Called Mr. Maintenance and he told me to get it fixed cause we don't want to give DOT any reason for a ticket.... :biggrin_25512: And since I had time... there I went... to TA in Ontario...
    Was lucky.... got to the front desk, showed the picture to the mechanic and told him that was a 10 min job... just cut the piece of hose and put a new nut.... And so he told me to go to bay 4 and in 5 mins he was there with tools in hand... did the job in 10 mins and I was out of there... :yes2557: I like that! :thumbright:
    That was $75.23 the company paid....
    Yeah... I know... if I were an owner operator I would better do it myself.... but hey.... that's one of the reasons why I am not an owner operator... :rolleyes:
     
    Blu_Ogre and 062 Thank this.
