Some simple things to keep you busy and not cost a lot of money while your truck is parked might include engine washing, lube, and tire pressure checks. 

Checking your batteries at this time could also help you get ready for all the work to come. 

If you are due for a preventive maintenance (PM) service, this could also be a good time to patronize your favorite local shop and use this time wisely. 

When the time comes to put your truck back on the road, you will know it is ready for all the rigors you put it through if you use this time to prepare. 

You may be bored waiting out our current situation, but don't waste the time. 

Stay safe. 

Be prepared.
