    Thanks, matching funds were suppose to end November 15. But the Supporter has extended to offer an additional week. I think we may just make goal by the end of November. Have not had time to get the broken mac on a monitor yet. After Baltimore I will get on that task. Hope to see several of you there.

    I think it’s a cool idea. A nice way to get a little more action on the forum too!

    I won a great prize a few years ago when this was done. I got one of the control arm/ ball joint skates from ITI

    ESC got a reaction from Louwo in Empty tractor trailer stuck in the mud   
    Our crew just got wrapped up winching a tractor trailer out of the mud on Rutgers Drive in Exton. We got the call just before 6:00 pm when we were closing up the shop so Paul Jr and Bob jumped in our 2015 Dodge wrecker and Bill in the 2011. We arrived on scene within 10 minutes and found that the driver missed the turn into the Wawa and attempted to turn around in the grass. The trailer was empty and the total estimated weight was approximately 30,000 lbs. We ran a 4 part line from Bills truck to the pintle hitch on the back of the tractor. We kept the other wrecker at the rear of the trailer in case we needed a bit of added pulling power. Within a few minutes we had the tractor back on the roadway using only one small Dodge 5500 wrecker. Our crew escorted the truck to the nearest intersection and assisted in getting him turned around to get back to the Wawa.

    You did a fine job...I have no problems with it. I carry a rubber mat in my 650 for laying under vehicles pulling driveshafts. I also use it on the deck to set pieces like this if needed. I use it all the time when I take the shoes off the wheel lift to use forks.
     
    So now if you want some constructive criticism...(and maybe you don't?)...the only problem was dropping it in the customer's driveway. A late model vehicle like that w/ full coverage...I would make every effort to take that to my shop and put it through insurance. That car has maybe 5 grand in damage and it will certainly go through insurance for repairs. Sell the job! Tell them it can go to whatever body shop they like in the morning. Do whatever you can make the decision easy for them. Take them home, get them a rental...whatever you can do. Just add any time to the invoice. I have set up limo or Car service for customers trying to get home to a distant location. You could double the value in that job over taking it home. Just an observance...if it was possible.

    ESC got a reaction from Chariot Towing in Tesla Towing procedure PDF files   
    I was really impressed when we setup with Tesla.  They sent these files over to us and it makes things so easy.  I printed them and put them in a binder in each truck so we have easy access to the info.  The dolly instructions are great to be able to show the vehicle owner that it is ok to do.  Honestly, they are easier to just wheel lift and dolly in my opinion.  Id rather not have to dig into the battery and power them up and all, it seems like a waste of time to me.  Many of the Tesla owners have had an "assistant" or someone meet us with the vehicle.  But the owners are more trouble than the car for sure.

    ESC got a reaction from Kat in Tesla Towing procedure PDF files   
    We have been towing for Tesla for a while now, and they provide us with only manuals for towing procedures for the Tesla models that really come in handy.  I figured some of you might want that info.  Don't be intimidated by a Tesla, towing them is pretty easy.  Dealing with the owners of the vehicles on the other hand, that can take a pit of patients.   Charge accordingly!
