TINNUTIS

ALWAYS WEAR EAR PROTECTION,,I know that the sound
of the mower sounds kool to us sometimes, But once
you get Tinnutis it NEVER gos away. there is no CURE...
in cass you might not know what Tinnutis, its also called
RINGING IN THE EARS. I have it in my left ear and there
is no cure for it, (Doc) say no cure for it at this time.
things that could cause it,, loud mowers,loud train horns,
loud backpack blowers,I also work at a carwash in the winter all 5 pumps running at the same time not a good thing. if you think a contsant ringing in your ear or ears
would be kool :-(( then DON'T WEAR EAR PROTECTION

Something I always do is padlock the trailer when I hook it on and take it off. It gets to be a habit and you will never forget to latch the trailer. Also before you get in your truck to leave a site make one quick walk around the site and your trailer and truck. This way you will not forget anything on site and you may catch something on the trailer that was just set there and not latched down,something wearing,low tire,no trailer lights etc. When you get in a hurry or a customer starts talking with you you sometimes forget and just drive away. It only takes a minute and its a good routine to get into.

If you are pulling your trailer in the garage for the first time, make sure the gate is going to clear the garage door.

Smile, it could be worse!

Great thread

Typical helpful Eric,

I will add on:

Lock your truck and loose tools when vehicle is unattended. A thief is an opportunist, eliminate the opportunity.

Refill your blower and trimmers on your trailer, spills kill the grass, spills on the street are low class. Also overfilling will leak out the cap and kill grass if you don't start on fire first.
