You have heard it said "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." That is true in how we take care of our bodies, our houses, our cars, and yes, how we take care of our Big Rigs.  

Our bodies give us warning signs when we need a check-up or tune-up. Pain, coughs, weight gain, weight loss, headaches, etc. These are all early warning signs of potential problems down the road that ought to be warning signs to have some things checked out.

In today's cars, trucks, and Big Rigs, these rolling computers with massive instrument panels give us all kinds of data about how our car or Big Rig is performing. Oil pressure gauge, Oil temperature gauge, Fuel level, Pyrometer, Outside Air temperature, Load weight, Tachometer, etc.  All these gauges are useful tools to help manage the health of your truck, and may even give you warning signs about some preventive maintenance that needs to be done.

But sometimes, even when we see the early warning signals, it is hard to slow down and do the preventive maintenance things we need to do. Often times there are time constraints. Who wants to put their truck in the shop for 2-3 days and miss some really good paying loads? Other times there are money constraints. You need to do some work on the truck, but you can get miss several days of making money, and so you are in a Catch 22. Need money to park and repair the truck. But can't make money if truck is parked and being repaired. What do you do?
