Jesse Cornwell posted three photos with the comment: "Please explain to me how you can drive an end dump and NOT realize your bed is up while riding down the <expletive> road???"
Jeff Watt If the handle is inside and not locked I know it happens. Good old Camz from Baltimore did a few power lines and bridges.
Jesse Cornwell I'm actually surprised it didn't rip the body off the ram...
Heather Barrett We've had a couple drivers do that with our trucks.
The ram looks straight. I wonder if it can still go back down.
Given that my cars have been beeping at me since 1993 if I leave the keys in or the lights on, my first thought is that there should be an alarm that beeps in the cab if the bed is not seated. Then I realized that would require a connector standard so that every brand of dump trailer could talk to every brand of tractor truck. But now wireless technology would allow trailer manufactures to leapfrog the "define a standard" problem. They could install a sensor that sends the info to a little box you place in the cab.
