It's slicker'n snot on a greased door knob here. Buddy of mine called me to help get it out.
BTW...The truck NEVER touched the trailer it almost slid into! And yes...that IS a load of LONG steel!

Wrapped a chain around the tow hook BEHIND the bumper and slid it away from the trailer VERY slowly!

With the way my health is right now...I was like a cat eatin' sh!t being able to do this!
Funny thing is...I'm good friends with the driver of the semi too! He had called my wrecker buddy(who told him it'd be an hour)
then called me as I was talking to my wrecker buddy asking me to come help! I told him I'd already been dispatched to save his A$$.

18 wheelers & Heavy Duty Wreckers like this one...used to have my own towing and recovery company.
In fact...on this semi's maiden voyage...I got to drive it to Tulsa and back.It's an '07 Pete
