    Default Any Problems With Alf Truck Repairs

    Once again our Engine is out of service. We had a hard time finding a company willing to work on it. The company fixing it is having a hard time finding the parts to fix it. Just wondering if anyone else out there is having a hard time finding someone to wrench on the ALF truck?

    What is it out of service for?

    A fire truck is the sum of all its parts.

    Whatever part or parts are causing trhe problem, there is a specialist whp shoiuld be able to troubleshoot and repair them.

    Default A.l.f???

    LOL...I had to google to find out what an A.L.F. vehicle was. I must be retired too long. I'd try the manufacturer to see if they have the parts. How old is the vehicle??

    While this is a neighboring dept. I am not exactly sure what the truck is O.O.S. for this time, I know the cafs system is not working this time and a few other things.

    This truck has been a lemon since day 1, it's been a nightmare for this dept. and they can't even rely on it, to even go on a call. The last authorized people that was able to work on it, was about 300 miles away.
