Did you know?
 
Shutting off the coach battery does not reset the engine ECM (computer) ??
 
The engine's ECM has its own built in battery.  Shutting off the coaches battery doesn't do anything more than shutting off the master switch.

Write Ups
when you write up a coach for something, don't write what you think needs done, write the symptoms.  It is not helpful if you write "adjust brakes."  It is more helpful to write "brakes pull" or "brakes weak".
P.S.
Our brakes use Automatic Slack Adjusters.

We keep 'em rollin'...
