    Damnphool ideas

    Had a trucking company give us some 3 rail (correct me if my description is not accurate) logging truck chains I hope I never have to use these things. They make my truck look like it can clime a tree . I think they might be a little over kill but I could not beat the price

    Damnphool ideas

    Some times Just getting out of a parking lot can be a BIT___ I will let you fill in the blanks. Better to have them and not need them, Then to need them and not have them. Cheaper than a tow bill

    Damnphool ideas

    SNOW?=BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For get that. As long as it doesn't cross the border the think we will be ok. Oh yes installing chains on trucks for drivers that don't have a clue. Fun times. For you guys that think you might be out on snowy roads now is the time to get those chains out and make sure they are in working order. Get to know how to install them. While you have good weather. Don't wait till your spun out in a snow storm in the middle of the road. This is not the time to be figuring these things out. Especially if your blocking traffic.

    As far as having no garage because of not being able to get a concrete truck on the property? This will not stop me. Break out the wheel barrows ha. Don't think I need to worry about this any more thanks for the help.

    Thank you for the response I got to thinking buy the time I put the new steel bed on the truck weight wise I should be real close to there limit. Guess I wont worry about it. as far as how many of the weight enforcement officers we have around Wenatchee I haven't a clue. But when I have to drive a ratty old construction truck there seems to be one around every corner never fails or the scales are open. Yup when the scales are open it makes me wonder what kind of ticket I am going to get to day .Makes a person a little nervous. especially when one officer is carrying a clip board and the other is carrying a creeper. And states today is your lucky day its inspection day your our first victim. OH NO!!!!Panic sets in .Things start going threw my mind. Did I perform a adequate pre flight inspection. Is this truck going to get me thrown in jail . do I have my paper work in order .Did D.W put a sing on back of truck that states please arrest this guy ha. Officer comes to the window and states looks good you are good to go. Whew what a relief . Big fiver I sure do appreciate your help with keeping us safe out there. Thank you for your service.

    Well I thought I would post a pic of the new road sign that was mention in my previous post. haven't got the hang of posting pics yet so I will say what I says word for word and see what you all think . it states and I quote NO TRUCKS OVERV 26000lbs GVW EMTY WEIGHT .ord no-2017-19 .un quote . To answer some of your questions yes I am registered as a motor home ,Tractor has a wood deck on it. Oki I put the rig on the scales this morning here are the results of the weigh in .a 08 Volvo 780 weighs...........................21027 lbs for you Canadians correct me if I am wrong that's 9537.687kilograms Trailer weight is...........................9080 lbs in Canadian that is 4118.619 kilograms for a grand total of 30,107 lbs or13656.306 kilograms. Buy the time I put the new bed on the tractor it will be over weight posted on that sign guess I wont be using that road any more. Don't want to make a trip in to see the judge Stupid Sign Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!! Somebody is playing politics in that neighborhood .May be a call to the county to ask what's up? is in store.

    New road sign

    Got a new road sign posted on the street I come home from work on . It says No trucks with gvw of 26000 lbs empty. Haven't weighed our rig yet. Any body got an idea what a 08 Volvo 780 weighs pulling a 30 ft fifth wheel. We will see who can guess my weight . Planning to weigh it this week end. We will see who gets the closest will have results Sunday night. Let the guessing begin. Now just to be fair about this the truck is still tandem and has a wood deck on it .

    Finally Did it! Dropped Fiver!

    Didn't want to give any body nightmares just trying to keep people safe .If you don't want to put a pad lock on your hitch put a linch pin in the place of the padlock or if you want to slow down a vandal take a 3/8 machine bolt drill a hole in it . Install bolt where padlock would go put 3/8 nut on it finger tighten it install cotter key or hair clip in hole in bolt. which would prevent the nut from backing off. I am thinking that if a vandal looked at this and figured it would be to much of a hassle to mess with they would move on. Best to check pad lock hole diameter to confirm bolt size.

    Special option on our truck.

    Hmm wonder if this would work for back seat drivers?
