    Triffitt trailer brakes..

    Not my trailer but... Triffitt 2008 32foot straw trailer with oil brakes and the brakes keep sticking slightly on.

    Isuzu DPF issues again

    DPF filter has been regenerating every 30 to 40 miles for the last 6 months. I've had the filter taken off and cleaned with DPF cleaning foam and the EGR checked and cleaned. But still the damned thing regenerates every 30 miles give or take. Doesn't take long to regenerate and oil level doesn't...
