Love this thread daniel b..we truley are lucky people to see this beautiful country the way most people will never get the chance to experience it..so many drivers let politics, and negativity make them miss out on the enjoyment in life.. keep living for the day Daniel!

Need advice on a serious problem with my trucking company

Yes brett there policy is 10 % idle per year period and I only idle if its night time and to hot to sleep and even with that they say that's to much. The lead dbl said they would not load me if my idle percentages weren't up t o company standards so in other wards they would basically starve me out of a job so I beat them to the punch and saved them and myself the trouble and took a driving job with a local company. Lesson learned if I ever go otr for a company again in the future it will be for a company with an apu or not at all...

Exactly my point but the company don't care about the driver only their bottom line which is crap... I understand the need for limiting idling but even that isn't good enough for them I only idle when I can't stand it anymore ....so drivers beware of this problem with companys

Idle policy. ...my company said if I don't stop idling my truck even tho its been 90 degrres down south that I should look for a new job ..now to me this is bull**** when I'm otr for 3 weeks at a time and its hot as hell in the truck how can the they expect you to sleep sweating ur ass off? Fat people like me don't keep well like tater salad in the heat lol but seriously this is a major problem ....company truck + no apu +heat +no idling=hot ****ed off driver what should I do?
