If texting proves to be the cause, lawyers will have a field day with this one. Tried to show it to someone & video link now showing "Unavailable". Pity as it's as it's the perfect 30 sec shock education against distracted driving.

There is more than one way to put spring brakes on a 4106. I have ITT spring ratchet brakes on the rear of mine. There is one other method that requires some fab and welding to install piggyback chambers. With V-drive that area by the rear brakes in very busy. I have ramps to get it up to a working height. Can't even get my head under it when it is up on the airbags. We were just on that road on the way back from a 3 week trip to Colorado in our 4106.

My church had a 4104 about 20 years ago. Working under that made working under a 'Bird feel like working under an '80s pickup truck with 6 inches of lift installed. Doing anything on the back side of the sideways mounted engine made doing the air compressor hoses on a PT look easy. LOL!
