Arrow truck sales vs Lone Mountain

Ive talked to a few truck drivers who have bought their truck from both dealers but I want to know which is really better I've heard that lone mountain will not let you lease your truck with anyone unless it's a major carrier until you own the truck I believe arrow is just a dealer and they don't have restrictions

Coolant level (Need answers ASAP)

Unless your coolant temp is running hot or your getting warning lights flashing on dash i wouldn't worry about if if it's just below minimum. If i were you i would go unload, shut the engine off while they are unloading you then after 3+hours after they are done then add coolant to a cold engine.

I would not recommend opening up the coolant on a hot or. Warm engine. Your coolant system might be pressurized and it could spray all over and you could really get hurt.

My dash is flashing stop coolant extremely low but the coolant is just below minimum

Accident questions

Are you already a CDL license driver, and was your previous job driving a commercial vehicle?

Employers are required to check references.

Did you report the accident on your APPLICATION? Did the accident happen while you were operating a CMV? WERE YOU AT FAULT in the accident? Did you get a TICKET as a result of the accident?

Rick

I am a CDL driver and was in a commercial vehicle I have a little over a year experience my truck hydroplaned and hit a guardrail I notified my company and called the police I didn't receive a ticket or citation and my company never gave me a copy of a report on it I checked my dac and MVR it doesn't show I have orientation soon and have been pre approved for hire what's my chances looking like and I'm no longer working for the company I got the accident with waiting on orientation and the application didn't ask for accident history
