      I’m surprised to see that this isn’t in Texas. At least the truck has not Texas plates. Wait... maybe

      Nope, thats a PTO wet line. Looks like the air supply is in the bed of the truck.

      So either the air to the trailer is to release the park brake. Or, the park brakes are "caged" and that line is for the service brakes.

      Either way a $h&t show.

      commentators have noted that the air hose is connected to the spring brakes, allowing the trailer to move. The service brake air hose was not connected, meaning there were no functional trailer brakes and the Silverado was doing all the pulling and all the stopping.

      disable the spring brakes on a giant trailer and tow it with a pin through the hitch of your 1/2 ton. This sounds like a pretty bad idea.

      Holy snit, I've seen pics of the new grill but not next to another car. BMW went 11/10 on that.

      It's like they went in the opposite direction if everybody else. Auto manufacturers are trying to make SUVs look like coupes and sedans, they made the 740i look like a lowered SUV

      That's just terrible. Definitely belongs in the doing it wrong thread

      ugh. Just wanted to add some actual DIW pics while posting.
      Googled "crashed into police station" and was surprised at the PAGES of results.
