We know that our customers work their trucks hard, so we want to help you make sure your vehicle stays in top operating condition all year round. The following are some of the common truck body issues that we see and repair at Camco Wheel & Axle:
Weathering: Work trucks are not fair-weather vehicles. Rain or shine, they are out in the elements, getting the job done. Weathering causes numerous problems for trucks, from peeling paint to rust and corrosion. It’s easy to think of paint as a decorative feature of a truck, but it is also a protective coating that should prevent the body of the truck from deteriorating. At Camco Wheel & Axle, we pay special attention to how the paint is holding up on trucks, and we recommend treating any emerging rust spots as quickly as possible to keep water, salt, and oxygen out and preserve the integrity of your truck body.
Electrical and wiring issues: Electrical issues are common problems for trucks, especially hi-tech commercial trucks. Hi-tech trucks rely on the electrical systems to ensure everything functions properly, especially the safety features. Exposure to moisture and constant friction can eventually compromise the electrical connections and lead to unreliable functioning. Our technicians at Camco Wheel & Axle can diagnose and repair faulty electrical or wiring issues and make sure your truck’s systems have a consistent source of electricity to help you get your work done.
Leaky roof or truck body panels: Another common problem for truck bodies is when the roof or panels on the truck begin to let in water. Leaks are the fastest way to compromise the body of a truck because a steady stream of moisture literally eats away at the truck’s structure. At Camco Wheel & Axle, we thoroughly check the body of your truck, especially the roof and panels, for the beginnings of any leaks. The sooner you spot a leak and have it repaired, the better off your truck will be and the longer it will last.
Insufficient hydraulic flow: Many commercial trucks suffer from an insufficient hydraulic flow. If your truck isn’t getting maximum hydraulic flow, it can cause your mounted equipment to malfunction. Hydraulic power systems are essential to trucks with mounted equipment, and fortunately, the technicians at Camco Wheel & Axle have the expertise and resources to diagnose and repair your PTO, clutch pump, or other issues that are interfering with your truck’s hydraulic flow.
