Well I will be attending driving school down in TN for Swift in a couple
of weeks. Wish me well. Although, all the negative about the company
still has me a little iffy. I really hope I want have a bad expierence.
I am currently still employed with Wal Mart as a Department Manager.
Well at least for two more weeks. I really have enjoyed my 10 years at
Wally World, plus my pay was great. But 15 years total in retail kinda
makes you want to do something different. So I choose to apply with...
Was going to change my diff fluid, and did the RR first. Pulled my drain plug, and knew immediately I was screwed. Disregard the mess on the drain pan, it’s just the two plugs and magnets that I held under the oil as it drained. I’m guessing that’s bearing shavings. I can see the ring gear with my camera, and it doesn’t look bad. The oil wasn’t burned (oh god I know that smell), and there wasn’t much floating in the oil pan. But I’m pretty sure the magnets tell the story. Has the consistency...
First off IFTA is just another way to extort money from truckers seeing how we pay taxes anytime we buy fuel. Every time im at a truck stop I have listened to other truckers say the exact same thing..
My question is since being a owner operator I have not even used my truck yet, My IFTA just came in the mail so I called the Texas Comptroller and asked what I need to do since I have not even driven the new truck. They simply said just write zero miles on the form and check a X in the box...
While visiting my parents on my 34 my mom suggested I get myself an air fryer for the truck. Says she uses hers for just about anything, including pork chops, and chicken. That's on top of French fries and chicken nuggets as well.
Looking into one, I can see how viable it could be, not much bigger than a toaster, but not as big as a camp stove. My only concern is the power usage, as the ones I looked into use anywhere from 1400 watts to as much as 1600 watts on the higher end models.
Hi. I've been considering trying to go into trucking, since I find the idea of being on the road a lot a good lifestyle for me, but I have a few questions and concerns. I'm a 34 female and I would like to know if it's dangerous to go into trucking if you're a woman? Is sexual assault common, or is the job relatively safe?
Also, what schools are legit to try in Las Vegas where I could possibly get a grant to cover it all? I have absolutely no way to pay a loan off if I couldn't get a job in...
I am interested in a truck (class 8), but I would need some driving perfomance parameters to decide easily. Therefore I would need information about gradeability, fuel consumption, acceleration, braking distance and so on. I only could find information about technical specifications like type of engine, type of transmission and so on, but nothing in detail about the complete vehicle performances in real driving. I am thinking about a truck from Freightliner or Peterbilt.
