They are sealed. If it is leaking at the rubber part, it will need replaced.

Wow, sorry JC. Hope you don't have to tow too far and get her fixed quickly.

All covered by Freighliner! Very cool to watch too! 3hr for 30min tow! It's always an adventure!

Does anyone else find it interesting that it's a Peterbilt tow truck? :-)

Good shot JC, most folks didn't know that a Berk could do a wheelie. So, did the tow truck guy seem well versed in how to tow one of our coaches? (driveshaft, mud flap and using the air connection in the generator compartment)

I was wondering how he set up the tow and whether he had Coachnet or Good Sam. Not sure what he meant about Freightliner taking care of everything. I assumed he was speaking of just the repair.

Great photo. I've never seen one in the hook, so I hadn't given any thought to what it would take.

Freightliner set up tow to local Freightliner and if you know what 85' total length is scary try going over Coronado bridge in San Diego Ca. This was done on Monday so all fixed up. New rear air bag stuff and all is fine!
