Power Inverter

I have a truck that idles then will shut off and a short time later start back up. When it starts back up it kicks my inverter off turning my tv and DVD player off. Has anyone else had this issue. Can anyone tell me why it does this and how to prevent it from happening. Thanks for any responses.

Thinking about this career read this

Well I have always been intrigued by trucks and the road. Soft my second career I went to the Truck Driving Institute in Sanford and learned so much. The night drive was so cool at that time I knew I made the right decision. I received a pre-hire from numerous companies and settled on Werner, which they said they signed me up for the Dollar General run which is exactly what I wanted. So if you have been thinking about trucking follow your heart and enjoy. As far as I go, I couldn't be happier with my choice and can't wait for June 27th to get here.

Anyone drive for H O Wolding

Hey Deb R, have you experienced slow freight or no freight with this company ? I really like what I heard in school from the recruiter. Just trying to see how much he told us was true. He told us solo expect 2500 miles per week.

Harsh Reality

One company tells you they will hire you. You send emails to other companies that you will not be going with them ,then BAM they chose someone else. Lesson learned

Hey ChickieMonster

Straight out of school, schneider is at 31 so I was basing it on that. But the home features make up for that penny

Hey ChickieMonster

Hey just met the TransAm recruiter today. Nice equipment, 30 cpm could be better but what is a ballpark figure of miles that you would get when you first started? He was preaching 2500 to 3000 but he is a recruiter.

Cooking and refrigerators in your truck?

Starting my second week of CDL school. Never been in a tractor/trailer. What does everyone do for cooking or keeping items cool. Are the trucks big enough for a little refrain.

Prime Inc- Passport

I really don't want to travel to Canada or Mexico. I know Primes website says you have to get a passport. Without a passport will they overlook me. I have had no accidents or tickets and no drug use. I've had 2 jobs my whole life and I am currently 53, so I am stable at work. What does everyone think.
