    Last weeks saga of trucking

    $1526.00 Clutch fan on a DD15 with all new belts, tensioner, pulleys, new hoses and flush and refill that was a Company shop at $65.00 a hour and parts at cost.

    I woke up in KC,MO Friday Morning about 10am and it was around 300 degrees inside the truck wtf !
    Fuses all good, relays good, compressor engages if you jump the switch, Freon level good found a wire to high pressure switched rubbed though fixed it ice cold a/c. Great shutdown about 0530 cannot go back to sleep after worrying about the A/C go ahead and get up. Got unloaded spent next two hours making sure all my guys paychecks were straight for those who do not know a truck driver will get really upset is his check is not right.

    Log in to check the drivers pay we have just switched to a new fuel card my guys are supposed to be set up to take $50 cash advance a week get 200 gallons a fuel a day and $50 of oil or fluids if needed. One driver had taken 7 advances $350.00 call payroll they had forgot to place a limit on his card great. Text drivers the amount of checks an email the statements 2 min later phone rings Mr. $350 wants to know why his check is light. Explain that advanced money is going to come out of your check like any other job you have had listen to story about how he didnít mean to advance so much money.

    Don't care whatever you advance during the week comes out on Friday period itís my money I let you get early not your money till you earn it. So this driver now wants to stay out over the weekend great itís is Friday afternoon and this guy wants to stay out because his wife is going to rip him a new one for the missing $350.00.
    Get on the phone after calling about six people I get a call for a load to FL needs to deliver Monday AM no issue driver has the hours to get it there book the load.
    Phone has been quite all day something is up?

    Ya but his girlfriend's happy.

    Just for clarity, this is not the same truck as the reefer fire. This is actually what was left of the truck that rear ended a bunch of people in CO back in April and killed 4.

    Correct. I was just posting a pic for reference. I didn't know the circumstances behind it though.

    Professional driving brought to you by Schneider. Two trucks parked side by side left. Schneider apparently needs both spaces to park. Bear in mind that this is a small lot with room for about a dozen trucks.

    Waiting to pick up some 200 proof alcohol in North Manchester. The moon came up through the corn. Figured I'd try a picture. Not too bad. Just wish I had my big tube instead of the little truck.

    And speaking of my trailer. It's a 2017 Polar. 285,000 miles on it. During it's last service, the shop called me and said the suspension hangers on the down axles had cracked welds. The bushings were trashed too.


    The Bendix calipers could not be backed off to change the pads. This only a month after changing 8 out of 12 brake Chambers. Calipers are $1,000 each. It needs 12. I guess our company liaison is working on warranty for it.

    Talking to the guy who does our regular service, he says Bendix makes the best brake controller but the worst calipers. Meritor makes the best calipers and the worst brake controller. Guess what controller we have. This is what happens when the accountants buy equipment.

    More fun.

    One of our 2018 T-680's, 218K miles, developed a dash issue. Turn the truck off, pull the key out and the dash goes out like normal.......for about a 1/4 second. Then it comes back on. Just like when you turn the key. After about 20 seconds, everything goes off like it should. Except the engine brake switch. It stays on. When you switch it off, the dash comes back on. All with the key in my hand.

    The 4-ways will come on all by themselves. Again with the key off. The only way to make them go out is to kill the batteries.

    The dealership had been working on it since Monday. The service writer called me today just to say they have no idea what's going on.

    Gotta love new technology.
