potential fluid leaks

What does everyone put down in case of a fuel leak from one of the toy's in route? I assume the vapors would be bad and hard to stay inside after a leak. Any help would be appreciated.

I usually use sawdust or cat litter for oil and other leaks or spills. Not sure about a gas leak.

We have oil absorbant pads at work. You could use something like that with a couple small pieces of duct tape to hold it in place.

You could put a boot tray below the tanks. Have an absorbent material in the tray to catch any spills. The tray can be removed once you get to your destination.

This is all meant in fun, couldn't resist,

We don't haul Harley's, so we don't have any leaks.

Seriously,

A pad, or some newspaper held down with bricks. Then the bricks can be used under you jacks, or for wheel chocks.

You could also get a piece of scrap carpet, cut like a runner, so both wheels of the bike would hold it in place.

called my local www.sadlerpowertrain.com and was told a lower plate could be purchased.
he said by time you buy the parts to fix you can buy a rerman ad-9 air dryer for less than 200.00

I am only assuming you have an ad-9 dryer .

also Bendix AD-9 Air Dryer | eBay


Bendix Replacement AD-9 Truck Air Dryer AD9 Semi-Truck | eBay

or

Bendix AD-9 Air Dryer "LQQK" Remanufactured | eBay

I'm hauling quads, but seriously the harley joke was funny, lmao. I just got the hauler home today, so I haven't even had a toy in it, was just trying to prevent a future problem. I don't have a seperate garage, the quads go into living space. We have pigmat at work, I'll "sneak" some out, along with having our welder make some small catch containers, custom to fit under the atv's. Thanks for all the input. I'm sure I will have a ton of other questions. Today was the first time I've ever pulled such a long wind sock, about an hour into it I learned real quick to steer slightly away from semi's running 75 mph, when they passed it wanted to suck me in, then spit me out. I have wd hitch but thinking maybe I need an anti-sway control device as well. Not to mention the 15-20 mph wind gusts. It was a learning experience for sure.
