Does any experienced drivers have any tips on alley docking?

I couldn't back for crap until my trainer shared this with me: You do not have to always have the wheels turned on the truck. Do not be afraid to straighten your truck wheels and let the trailer drift into place. This makes it a lot easier to chase since you have more time and less turning of the wheel, and it's much easier to add more pivot or stay neutral and easier to judge.

Also: Once the trailer is I'm the hole NEVER take it out. If that means pulling up six inches and going back and doing that ten times to only keep the ass in the spot then that's what you do.

After those tips I've been Docking 90 and 45 all day no problems. Good luck!

No APU? no inverter? No food!

Hey all, So I'm about two days away from finishing my training at Werner. I knew despite their deceptive marketing that only the million safe mile drivers got an APU. However, I didn't think an inverter would be an issue. Come to find out yesterday, they don't even allow inverters!

I've got severe crohns disease so I'm on a pretty restricted diet. Going off that diet leaves me a mess! My trainer has an apu and so he has a cooler unit and a microwave. I was planning on getting the same, just using an inverter. In addition, my medication has to be kept cool. I also didn't see that being a problem. I've messaged safety about the issue and I'm waiting to hear back. Does anyone have a work around to this, since they expect us to live in the dark like cavemen?

[A Certain] Trucking School - An Honest Review

Oh, geez. Where do I start? To be completely honest, I wouldn't recommend [School Name Withheld] to my worst enemy. They treat you as another check walking through the door and that's about it. Unfortunately, like many things, the recruiters will make promises that won't hold up once you're enrolled and getting into it. For me, I was promised that I would get to choose between the road/range class that went 5:30-14:00 or 14:30-23:00. I specifically spoke to the head of training (Mrs. T) way in advance to request this because I had doctors appointments and procedures that would cost me range time to attend. She said she would "try".

Shortly after, I found out I was placed in the morning class. That was my first strike. No big deal, I guess I'll have to miss a little bit. When I asked how I could make up this time I would miss because of my doctor visit and procedure I was basically told too bad, there's nothing I can do. Pretty sure there's an ADA violation there from a school receiving federal funds! I'm debating if it's worth complaining.

When we finally got broken up into our groups of three and put out on the range, things only got worse. I had to learn to drive and be proficient enough to drive in FIVE different trucks with three different transmissions in less than 10 days, because we kept having breakdowns. Those trucks being two freightliner, one international, a Volvo, and a KW. Even a prostar day cab. Everything was so broken down the school actually rented a day cab just so we could do maneuvers.

We started in a blue freightliner which had a check engine light on, but we were told to drive it anyways. It fell apart real quick when the night class came in. So the next morning, they put us in the black freightliner. This one had two engine light, a regen, and they abs light was on, but we were told to just drive it as well, it'd be fine. We'll, shortly after this truck broke down. Then they put us in the international, but somebody showed up late for their DMV test so they just yanked it from our group and gave it to that guy. For whatever reason, they felt it was right sticking my group with the broken trucks and sitting in the break room. All said and done, my group got about half the drive time they should have, because of Thanksgiving and the truck failures.

Oh, and if you have a complaint? Forget it. Mrs. T is an ex military drill sergeant that everyone is afraid to speak up to because they'll get "yelled" at. I'm pretty sure it's their jobs they're afraid of losing. Not being afraid I went to confront her about the joke of a process they use to get you your HAZMAT endorsement. I too got yelled at and then she began yelling at her secretary asking why I was still there and why was I standing in front of her door.

My instructor who I'll abbreviate as Mr. A was an inflated ego arsehole. He thought he knew everything there was to know. If you asked a question he would mock you and try to make you look stupid, or go on a long winded speech about some story on his life that nobody cares to hear, as if we had unlimited range time. I was scolded for reminding a fellow student while driving that he left his blinker on. He consistently talked crap behind the back of whoever was in the truck to the two people that were observing. My classmates and I confirmed this with each other. Mr. A believed I was a drug addict or some punk 21 year old skater kid up to no good. I don't want to be a part of an organization that treats it's students that way, but I was almost done and had already paid a large chunk of money so I stuck it out.

The office staff still uses paper for everything and is running the most disorganized operation I've ever seen. You can talk to them about something and go back ten minutes later and they have no idea who you are or what you're talking about.

I won't even go into the break room that had the stench of vomit for three straight weeks, so bad that I couldn't even eat my meals in there. There's also the small but irritating issue of the bathroom never having towels or soap. If you wanted soap or no vomit stench you had to go upstairs to the staff restroom, they had private restrooms but technically students aren't allowed to use those. Ha! Go figure.

All said and done, I'd say you should check out Southwest truck driver training, or absolutely ANYWHERE ELSE but [School name withheld]. At [School name withheld] the employees all have super trucker type attitude problems and will dance around your questions. You'll be lucky to get an answer, or a license.

Hope that helps!

Note: I left out names but you'll know who they are if you go there. Don't say I didn't warn you! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

An 80,000 pound thank you!

Congrats Jason! How was AIT? I'm planning to attend that school at the beginning of the year. I'm sure I past you a few times as I always saw the AIT truck driving down Craig road, or near Nellis. How were the instructors?

An 80,000 pound thank you!

Hello Everyone, I'm making this post for two reasons. First, I graduated trucking school Friday with a Class A CDL fully endorsed! Second, I can not express a big enough thank you to all the mods, members, and managers of Truckingtruth.com! Two weeks of classroom and two weeks split between the road and range is not enough time to learn everything, but thanks to this site I graduated the top of my class and was extremely proficient in everything from the DMV written tests, to range maneuvers, and even driving and double clutching! Thank you, everyone. Here's to a long lasting relationship, career, and all the friends I will make along the way!

Trucking With A Cat?

Hey Folks, I'd like to have a companion on the road with me. I'm thinking a cat because they are small, tidy, and self grooming and they don't like to get filthy anymore than I'd want him to! I notice a lot of people seem to keep a litter box in their truck with them. I'm not sure if this is something I could, or would want, to get used to though. I don't like the possibility of a smell, or sand everywhere. So I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck training a cat to go outside instead of a litter box?

Best, Jason Eyerly

No support

I plan on going blue and white collar. Sure, I drive a truck. It also gives me mobility and a good back up salary. In addition to trucking, I work in finance. So what people think about trucking or truckers for that matter is usually far from the truth. My old man always told me "Opinions are like *******s, everybody has one." Still one of my favorite quotes to this day.

Trucking School vs. Trucking Truth (HAZMAT Discrepancy?)

Hey Folks, So the CDL practice material here at TruckingTruth says the ID Number is supposed to come first (UN1111) or whatever it may be. However, at my school they taught us to remember the acronym SHIP:

-Shipping Name -Hazard Class -Identification Number -Packaging Group

Any HAZMAT guys or recent testers that can clear this up for me? I'd hate to fail the endorsement because I use the wrong order!

Thanks, Jason E.

AIT Weekly Trucking School Update...

Hey Folks, In this post I will be posting a weekly update on my status, thoughts, and experiences at the AIT school. First, let me extend a huge thank you to all the folks here at TruckingTruth, especially Brett and those who help maintain it. I could go on all day about the training program alone!

After going through hell and high water, taking out loans with stupid interest, and getting qualified by Uncle Sam, I got school paid for last minute on 11/1/2014 with class starting 11/3/2014! Being proactive, I had spent a lot of time already on TruckingTruth, and went in with 5 pre-hires, my DOT Physical completed, and ready to take my CDL A permit as well as all endorsements.

Unfortunately, the first week consisted of listening to the teacher go through the driving manual line by line, asking us to highlight and memorize! That is for the birds! I didn't need to do any of that because I had already studied on TruckingTruth and was ready to go! I spent my days this week daydreaming, coloring, answering e-mails, and attending other personal business matters, which was nice! As long as I didn't sleep, the teacher had said she didn't care what we did, because it was up to us if we passed or failed! Although, she did think I fell asleep on her twice, I was really just watching the floor to avoid watching the clock! When we took our practice tests, that's when everyone was confused. We did General Knowledge of 100 questions, and 50 questions on all the other endorsements. To everyones' surprise, I scored 100% on every single test! Thank you, TruckingTruth! The teacher basically left me alone after that, and everyone was asking me how on Earth I pulled this off because I hadn't been doing anything all class. Que up 11 personal referrals to TruckingTruth.com!

Friday afternoon we were sent to the DMV to take all of our written exams, and again I blew the mind of the DMV employee as I finished each endorsement with an average time of 2.5 minutes and 80% on all of them (the computer stops you once you cannot fail, in Nevada), and just 7 minutes on the general knowledge. So, needless to say, thanks to TruckingTruth.com and this forum especially, I am way ahead of where I should be for class and am basically just sitting around waiting for range/road time.

Next week is all class time as well, and our last week in the class (2/4). I'm not sure what there could possibly be left to go over that we haven't drilled over already, except the insanely repetitive homework, but time will tell. I get the feeling I'll still be watching the flies and waiting for time to pass! In the meantime, everything is going great and I'm studying for the pre-trip. That's the only test I'm worried about. I'm not sure if I should study through my schools acronym stuff or just go with what's here on TruckingTruth. I'll probably do a 90/10 mixture and call it a day. Thanks again everyone, looking forward to reporting back next week with more positive results! rofl-3.gif

Werner Physical?

Hey Folks, I'm back with another question about physicals. I've got my pre-hires that I'd like to go with (swift & werner) but again, as always, I'm worried about the physical. Because of my Crohn's disease I have this weird side effect with my wrist that causes it to swell. I can still drive and everything with it just fine, I'm just worried that if they ask me to lift some weights, or rotate my wrists around, that I won't be able to pull it off with this hand. I got past my DOT Physical just fine, but they didn't make me bend or lift anything with this hand.

All that said, does anyone have any insight on the physical portion for Swift or Werner? I've pretty much eliminated Knight because of this reason, but heard that you just breeze through these two. Any accuracy or information on this? Also, am I required to re-take the DOT Physical if I already had it done in October? Thanks much!

Will Fuel For Shower! (Help?)

Hey Folks, I've been reading about truck stop showers and how they work. I'm seeing an average of $9-$12 for a shower! That's insane. However, it seems if you purchase 50 gallons or more of diesel, you get to shower free, or you get a credit that is good for 5 days. This leaves me with a few questions, as I'm trying to create software or an excel sheet that will help truckers keep track of shower credits and how to take most advantage of this system.

1) Do you have to take 50 gallons at once, or just a free shower every 50 gallons? 2) Do they expire? a. If yes, how long? 3) Do they have to be used at the location where it was earned? 4) Do companies tell you when/where to stop for fuel, or can you get fuel whenever? a. My thinking is: You might as well buy 50 gallons every time you want to fuel/shower. You're going to need/burn that fuel at some point in the future anyways, so you might as well get it now and get the free shower!

Thanks ya'll! Jason E.

Lease Vs. Company...

Hey Jason. Welcome to Trucking Truth. To answer your questions about why this site is against company leasing is probably because these companies that hire rookies tend to make the deal seem so sweet to these new guys and if you know the numbers, it's a very risky proposition for new drivers. That's at least in part why we discourage it. Many, many here are new to trucking and learning the profession and being a business owner at the same time is, as you know, not a risk worth taking.

You ask ...

double-quotes-start.png

...why does nobody talk about leasing through a dealership, or...here's an idea, PAY CASH FOR THE TRUCK!

-Jason

double-quotes-end.png

Paying cash would probably be the only way I'd get into tractor ownership and for me, that would take a few years of savings. However, even if I had the cash today, I still wouldn't want the burden of business management right now. I just want to get good at driving.

Since you're interested in the idea, it would be great if you shared what you've learned. It sounds like you have valuable information from which the rest of us could learn. Please, do tell!

-mountain girl

smile.gif

I'm definitely planning on doing some deep analysis into the subject, but I'll have to setup some sort of survey and collect data from a lot of truckers. Probably about 5,000. So, when/if I ever have the time to figure out this hurdle, I can start to think about the analysis and what we can compare between company/lease/purchase.

Lease Vs. Company...

Jason,

Do you really think the ability to crunch numbers is the one thing that makes a person successful in any business? If so, you and your wife need to sue whatever college handed out a "dual degree" because they failed to add real world economics to the program. There are so many factors that go into this business model that I would scream run from any idea of becoming an owner operator, even if you bought the truck out right.

I drive for a company, however, I do so with a business mentality. I actually tracked fuel costs, tolls, scales and whatever else I could put numbers to. Let me tell you, the average profit margin is 3%. My tally at the end of my year of tracking, without the burden of a truck and insurance payment, didn`t even get me to that number.

I would look at the regulatory picture of the trucking industry as a model for what is yet to come as it pertains to investments before asking why now and future truckers who come to this site are discouraged from becoming an owner operator straight out of the gate. A little common and business sense.

The truth may sting, but it saves one from a lot of pain later.

First off, I'll pretend you aren't arrogant enough to actually insult my intelligence with what little you know about me. Nobody said anything about "crunching numbers". A calculator can do that, so don't put words in my mouth. Would you care to share this analysis with us? I'm going to assume you have this all mapped out in a detailed excel sheet or something of the sort? I'm also going to HOPE that you did this for longer than a year, because as you know there are many micro/macro economic (real world) factors that can influence these numbers with such a short time-span (i.e. Fuel). Yes, I do believe being able to work with numbers is essential in any business. If you can't so much as count change, you can't run a business.

Lease Vs. Company...

Hey Everyone, It seems this website is dedicated to slamming the idea of being an owner/operator or leasing. Everybody talks about leasing through the company, but why does nobody talk about leasing through a dealership, or...here's an idea, PAY CASH FOR THE TRUCK! That would reduce a lot of your monthly expenses right there, and all of my investing has always been focused on cash flow: Home rental, automated trading strategies, etc.

Has anyone done a detailed breakdown of these methods? I'm an equity trader, so I'd like to think I'm financially educated, especially with risk:reward, budgeting, etc. Leasing or even purchasing is an option I'd like to consider in the future. My fiancee has a dual degree in business and finance, and I myself in quant and stat modeling, so suffice to say, we are good with numbers. I'm not trying to brag, just inform anyone who may read this post that I'm not a (OH! MY OWN TRUCK WITH NO DOWN PAYMENT OR CREDIT CHECK!?) Thanks in advance for your help.

Werner Enterprises: How are the trucks?

Oh, and you are assigned a truck, so it's yours. Even the sklip-seat deal I am in I drive the same truck, unless it's in the shop, then I get a loaner.

After it is done at the shop, do you get "your" truck back? I'll be keeping it spotless if it's essentially my truck. Fingers crossed they put me in anything other than a freightliner. Nothing but issues with those trucks and then company when I was working at Peterbilt of Las Vegas. What is "sklip-seat"? I'm assuming you meant skip/slip.

How Do You Eat Normal Meals On The Road!?

Hey Jason, I just had to respond to this tonight because I'm sitting in my favorite little Sports Bar (The Gipper) in Milford Connecticut enjoying one of the best bowls of French Onion soup, (while watching the Broncos put one on the Chargers) that you'll find anywhere in the country. I enjoy cooking in my truck, but I also have little favorite eating spots all across the country. It's funny how the whole country gets to be as familiar to you as your own backyard once you've been out here doing this for a while. Four days ago I was down in San Benito TX (the southern tip of Texas on the border of Mexico) enjoying a delicious boiled shrimp dinner at a place I like to go to when in that area. Tonight I'm at "The Gipper" 20141023_231113_zps9e28c7db.jpg

My point in sharing this is that you don't have to settle for truck stop food all the time. Many of them are strategically positioned so you just about have to eat there if you are planning on eating out, but once you get to know your way around the country you can develop your own little places that you like to stay at so that you can eat well.

I use a crock pot in my truck - it works well for me and the style of cooking I enjoy. I'll throw the ingredients together in the morning for a nice soup or a Jambalaya, or maybe even some smothered pork chops and let it simmer and fill my truck with it's wonderful aroma as I'm turning the miles of scenery into money. I'm considering getting a small electric skillet so that I can cook a quick meal at the end of the day when I feel like it, or maybe even for cooking some eggs and bacon in the morning.

You may want to wait until you get in a truck before investing money into electric appliances just so that you will be aware of what type of power source you've got available to you. I've seen quite a few people out here using a small Coleman cook stove, and some folks with a "hot plate" for a cooker. My wife will sometimes save portions of meals that she has prepared at home for me in the freezer. I recently had some really good purple hull peas with deer sausage cooked in with them that she had prepared and saved for me to take with me on the road.

You can save yourself a lot of money by carefully planning and preparing your own meals, and you can also eat more healthy that way also.

All excellent ideas! I'm not sure if I could deal, or would want, the crockpot making my truck smell like my next meal all day. I think I'd prefer the truck to smell like, well..truck, or air freshener. I like the other ideas though. How do you go about doing your dishes? Of course you can use plastics for the eating and what not, but what about the crock pot, skillet, etc?

How Do You Eat Normal Meals On The Road!?

Hey All, As I go into school, I'm already looking forward to the day I have my own truck. However, I don't like the health risks I'm taking on if I eat fast/gas station food for every meal, every day, although I do love greasy junk. Are there any truckers out there that can tell me what equipment or methods you use to eat semi-normal until you get some home time? I was thinking instead of a Microwave I may get a toaster oven, since anything microwaved can be put in a toaster oven, but not vice versa. Also, I thought about getting a little camping stove of some sort that is big enough to cook a decent meal but small enough to be stored out of my way. Appreciate any and all input!
