    Plus the road salt on top of that and it is a nice mess on the trucks.

You would be surprised how much salt and crap is on the engineroom floor a few hours later when the water dries up.
    There's nothing written in black and white about rinsing down the rigs. But I'd say 75% of the drivers do rinse the rigs down when they return to the station, including the undercarriage. Most D/O's take good care of their equipment. I might need to remind them once in a great while to get the white stuff off the black stuff.

    I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.
