    So I recently took my E350 cutaway box truck on a 2400 mile round trip to pick up a load of equipment that I bought. I ended up getting back late at night and parked the truck in the shop. The following morning, I go over there to begin unloading, and I'm greeted with this....

    Always ****ing something.... :deeplist:

    Yep,...always something. Although an easy fix, just be glad them hoses didnt give up completely while on the road.

    I hope that's all it is... I have a 1000 mile round trip coming up tomorrow night down to Saint Louis. I'm going to go over to the warehouse here in a bit and clean this all up with a rag, tighten up those clamps, and lay under there with it running and see if it continues to drip.

    There's a scale at one of the factories here in town the trucks use when they pick up the scrap steel containers. I go over there in the middle of the night when nobody is around and use it... I found out I was about 2 tons over gross coming back. (I know. :deeplist:) I think I strained it, but the tranny fluid wasn't low and it didn't smell scorched.
