pro tank 2s are not plastic...but some bad knockoffs are...and that 100% won't work well with stock coils. Maybe a cotton rebuild..or a Fadora special...but they are really hard to come by!! (hee hee like a dead horse, im dying to try one!)!
*On the Road Again...*
Well, started out early. Heading to Lyndhurst, Virginia. Last week was a great week for me as far as revenue was concerned, but very hectic. Not much downtime. I think the longest my truck sat still was 6hrs. This is my trainee's last week with me before he goes back to Des Moines for test-out and gets his own truck. For as long as I've been driving and training, I get nervous when releasing a new guy. I always feel like I forgot to teach something. But its just not possible to impart my decade + knowledge into someone in just 5 weeks. I not only have to teach the driving aspect and all that goes with it, but also all the things that go will flatbedding. But just because he'll be on his own next week, doesn't mean that my job as his trainer has ended. Everyone I train has free reign to call me at anytime day or night if they're unsure about anything. I'd rather get woken up at 3am with a question about how to secure a load properly than to get a call in the morning about a load coming off the trailer.
I'm a pretty big goofball when I'm not behind the wheel, but rest assured, I take safety very seriously. Not only my own, but all of the people I drive around every day.
So, when you get that 1 trucker that has irritated you on the road, please remember this:
No One Remembers The Good I Do, Until I Don't Do It.
No.. Had a your fired...and the next week a I quit, and I was next up, but not what I wanted...this was sposed to be a no stress 20-25 hr extra gig.then my primary job for the last 12 yrs migrated to Nashville, and the wife wasn't moving...but I start out with little staff and a rough road ahead, but what the hell..
