    You know when you order a new wagon in December and it's all good, but then in February the guy calls and says that oh instead of beginning of April it won't be built til August (!) oh and also the factory won't install 2 lift axles....

    I'm not feeling to proud about the coming year at this moment. Sheeeit

    Did they specify why the factory won't do 2 lift axles?

    Nope. Oh, and: of the front is the lift it won't be manual, it will be auto controlled based on load weight.
    So #### that. I get it: I'm a bad learner sometimes. I'm cancel that #### thing

    One of the propane outfits that hauls outta the same refineries has those auto piles of #### lift setups.

    They constantly have issues with the valves on those things. Every now and again you will see one after he gets loaded and the front axle won't go down and no manual over ride.

    No way.

    Sure enough legal, but I suspect that you don't like that tail wagging the dog feeling. Sometimes you just do what you gotta do!

    Getting some of the salt rinsed off. Supost to be 65 and sunny tomarow. Boy all that polishing I did last year looks like ship already. I guess I’ll take another week in April and hit it all again? Hopefully it will be a little easier this time around? E8839E5D-4DB5-4001-8AC9-F9C64FB83818.jpeg

    Mine is setup so I can control both lifts on the trailer from the truck. The valves are plumbed NO so if you loose power to the valves they stay down. There are manual controls on the valves if you don't have the truck wired to control them. There are pressure reliefs on the bags so if you forget to lower the front axle when you load it won't blow the bags on the center axle.
