I'm always afraid of this happening. Maybe that'* why my grandpa used his FWD Park Avenue to back the boat in :P

Had it happen once at crazy low tide and the rear wheels of my S10 tahoe were on the edge or the ramp. Btw this was to pull out a 24' bayliner

I used to go down to the boat ramp in Mukilteo on windy stormy days and watch people try to dock and then retrieve their boats. It was hilarious! Saw lot'* of damages done that could have been avoided if they had taken their time, not panicked and basically know how to operate a boat!

Aaaaah, leave the doors open a couple days, shoot a can of WD40 down the throat of the intake, it'll be good as new. hahahaha!. Think someone didn't set the emergency brake?

I like the comments on YouTube are saying how the truck is ruined. Pssssh, it'* not ruined. I bet that truck was in the water 3-4 hours tops. The lights were still on when they pulled it out.

That'* not enough time to do any serious damage. Like Venom said, let it air out.

My buddy sunk his Explorer in a fairly decent puddle once which caused most of the carpet to get soaked for about an hour, you know the part that matter if it gets wet. We just drained the water, let it air out, and wet-vac'd as much water as we could. Then we got hand carpet cleaner (Bissel from Wal-Mart) and used that once every day for a week. Add in using 2 bottles of Febreeze a day as well, you don't have stinky wet carpet.

Back when I was in the business, some azz stole one of my cabs on out it in the river behind the local Kmart. A fraction of the roof and sign were all that was left above water. Several inches of mud were powerwashed out of it, and we left all 4 doors open with a salamander heater blowing in from the drivers side for a whole day. 4 days later, we pulled the plugs, sprayed WD40 down the TB while cranking, put the plugs back in and she fired and went about her business. Must have been all the silt in the interior that caused the carp smell to never leave. We hid air fresheners all through it and sent it out last/replacement during a shift.

I saw several comments saying diesel, which it wasn't. "Magnum" can clearly be seen on the fender.

Look again, you can also see the giant "C" on the side for CUMMINS, I don't know where you see "Magnum".
