"check gages" light in towing truck came on; can I haul my horse home safely?
This is kind of time sensitive:
I have my horse at the vet today for a recheck appointment. While pulling up to the hospital, my "check gages" light came on in my 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel truck. It's not flashing.
Can I drive my horse home safely today after his appointment??
I don't have the owner's manual (bought it used and it's too old of a truck to find one online) so I don't know what this light means. Obviously I have a clue, and I suspect it's my battery gage, as it is down to "8" (extreme far left of gage). My gas gage hasn't been accurate for years, it's on the list of things to fix when I get the cash.
It's ~45 minutes (maybe 20 miles), almost completely side streets at 45mph.
I'm super nervous as the last time I hauled my horse home, my brake line rusted open and we slammed into the front gate at the barn (thankfully that was all!! but still super scary nonetheless!!). So my brakes have very recently (within the last month) been completely redone.
