Anything else noteworthy about my shower experience
The electrical outlet had a red light glowing, indicating that it was not working. This was a GFCI type outlet and I could not get it to reset. Because of this, I was not able to use my blow dryer, which forced me to leave the facility with damp hair in the lower 40s (F). This causes me to downgrade my rating to a B.

- B
Would I recommend this shower facility to other professional truck drivers?
- Maybe
Additional comments
I prefer to use the kiosk when getting a shower. However, I had to wait in line as the printer for the kiosk was out of paper.
