How do I use those kits with the glad hand on them ? Do I just took it up to my service line?

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Pull the red knob, connect the two halves together, jump back in cab and push the red knob back in. Should be set to pump air then. Mine never seals well, so a lot of hissing at the two halves.

Or pull into Love's and give them $5 if you don't have a Tire Pass credit. Much easier! dancing.gif

Most of the major carriers put stickers on the fenders or framerails for the pressures. Personally, I run 115 on the steers and 110 on the drives. These are all cold psi, taken in the morning after sitting all night. Don't check pressures right after exiting the interstate from driving as the pressures will read high.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

It should say on the truck, and/or instructions from your company. In my case, it is 100psi all tires.
