Is Your Truck and Yourself set up For Winter?
I can't count how many times a driver had been caught broke down in the cold ...
3 to 4 hrs waiting for that service truck in even a warm 28deg F with a slight wind chill factor will drop your body temp.
So heres' a small list and i hope others will add to it.
some food and water!
thermal snow bib snow pants and jacket.
hat, ie like the goofy one's the Canuks wear.
boots. for winter not line dancing!
Extra warm blanket
this way your warm!
A FLASH LIGHT WITH A BLINKER LIGHT!
to have on in the cab at night so peeps can see that your in truck needing help. turn it off when you get help too.please
do a pre winter service Alt,Batteries,all conections. coolant (hose&Clamps too)
extra wiper blades proper wash fluid -20deg F
good anti gel for fuel your APU or bunk heater(espar) will need it if your in real cold weather.and the engine has failed.
broom or snow brush They can't see the flashing light if your cab if it is covered with snow.
Flares....And put them out too!!!!! so you don't get run over! triangles really suck and are good for nice sunny days!
deiceing fluid if your 5th wheel is locked frozen put it in a spray bottle..or just have one to put it in..
A bag of salt/sand
Tow chain 25' min.
got tools? better get some don't be a Bumm.
extra fuel filter and wrench that fit.
Air line repair kit
extra airlines and pigtail (if you Don't have them)

Is this a worthwhile discussion?
