Per diem

I'm new to Trucking and understand that I am eligible for money per day. My main question is so I get all my per diem back as a refund? Do I get any of it back? Can someone please explain how that works cause I have zero clue

Front chrome hub cover

I've got a 2011 587 peterbilt and I've bought front hub covers. The driver side went on great but the passenger side is being very difficult. Is there a trick or something to persuade this thing on??

2013 T660 KENWORTH

I just started at my first company and got my truck yesturday morning. This evening while I was putting all my stuff in it I noticed a plug in for like tv or refrigerator. Does anyone know if that truck came factory with it or what? I couldn't find anything in the owners manual and no way to check how many watts it puts out. All info would dearly help. And it's under the bed in the sleeper

Speeding ticket

I just got a ticket for 15 over. I don't currently have my CDL but do take my test this coming up Friday. I've not had any tickets in the past 8 years. I do plan to fight the ticket to see if I can get it reduced to something else. Bit if i don't beat it or get it reduced how bad will this hurt me for getting hired by a company?

Anyway yes i got a bad PAST but am much different and better then the man I once was. Does anyone know of a company that would be willing to give a man like me an opportunity once I graduate school??
