Test drive

Well, we were hoping that the truck would be ready to roll Monday morning. I called the repair center and they had it put back together and was on a test drive with it. I called back later and was told it still wasn’t behaving properly and they were still working on it. I called a third time and was told again it was on another test run and they would call me back. That of course never happened.

I will go there myself Tuesday morning and see the truck status for myself. Either we will have good news or we won’t, but at least I can see for myself and actually talk to the mechanic working on it. Hopefully I will have more news to share with you then.

Auction Match and parts

Howdy! I just got notified that an anonymous donor has guaranteed to match dollar for dollar (up to $500.00) of the winning bid amount! This automatically will double the donation to the Wounded Warriors Project! Let’s get with it and maximize what we can do for a worthwhile cause! BTW, just wanted to clarify that the bobblehead wasn’t sitting on a shelf then given back to us unwanted lol. The original purchaser actually bought four of them and thought a year later would be nice to give to someone a chance that missed out the first time. This bobblehead has never been opened and the certificate is blank, ready for your name!

Parts…our truck is torn apart and waiting on a dry clutch disc from Freightliner. Let’s hope the needed parts arrives soon!

Truck is in the ER

The Freightliner shop has been tearing apart the tractor troubleshooting our clutch problems. They have verified the problem exists and have ordered several parts which should come in on Thursday afternoon. They have stated to drop the transmission and several sensors have corrosion visible. We are going back home to Belvidere for the night since nothing we can do until the truck is fixed. The shop did plug in our freezer so no worries about our food going bad. As soon as more details are available, I’ll make a new post, but nothing more to report today. Don’t forget to stop by our bigrigtravels store and bid on the donated bobblehead- and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Wounded Warriors Project
