Reaper's Bio

Ever since a young age I've always wanted to be a truck driver. Now that I am 25 and after numerous ride alongside with my dad in his truck. I am ready to take the plunge into the amazing world of a trucker. My ultimate goal is to be an owner operator and dedicate the company to my son who passed away at such an early age.

Thank you so much! Do I attach the wire at the bolts or the clamp? On the antennae side...

Cb radio ground issues mirror mount

Hey guys I'm having power reflection issues with my CB radio. Swr is 1 but power reflection is over 8. I have a firestik II, Wilson silver coax, and a cobra lx lcd radio. Cascadia 2018 mirror mount. Any ideas at all? Can I run a ground wire from the mount to the frame at all?

Demo mode on Garmin dezl with dash cam.

Anyone know how to take it off demo mode? It says after 15 minutes of driving but at that point I would need to put in my directions...

Webasto bunk and apu questions

Definitely learned my lesson about that. At least it was harmlessly learned instead of causing a truck fire or roll over.

Got a pretty awesome couple wedding gifts!

So both sides of the family surprised me lol. My new wife's side gave me a cobra 29 lx lcd radio with a fire stick antennae.

My side gave me a uniden bear 990 ssb with fire stick antennae. My question is which one performs better with a fire stick? And is the Freightliner stock antennae worth using? I need to get a new bracket for the antennae mount until fire stick.

But besides that. I'm officially married!!! Well, saying the vows around noon today but still lol. I'm only typing this because everyone kinda dispersed for a few to meet each other for the first time. I figured a quick post wouldn't hurt.

Webasto bunk and apu questions

I never knew it needed to be ran at all.... The truck was sitting in the yard for about a year before I got assigned her so I doubt it has been ran since 2016

Did you do a through check out of the truck when you was assigned? One of the things you should have checked was the heater. I know I always check the heater and APU when I'm assigned to a new truck. It's also listed on the check sheet you are given when you get a truck assigned. So you are telling me you said you checked everything on the list when you didn't?

No I had turned it on and I felt the vents and felt no heat. (Had no idea what it was and how it worked.) So I noted it was not working. Truck when I checked it originally was 108 inside. Honestly it could have worked but I was feeling for the wrong spot.

Thanks rainy! Yeah I got a rigmaster apu. Is the webasto normal to make that smell?

Webasto bunk and apu questions

Hey guys been such a long time since I've been on here. I've been running hard on tight night shift loads and been dog tired. The other day I had my apu running and I tried to up the temp so it would make the truck 65 degrees. (It was 48 outside) instead of blowing the hotter air it blew the 41 degrees ice air or it just shut the fans off automatically... So I shut the fan off and put the webasto bunk heater on and I smelt a strong smell of desiel fuel. Is this normal for either?
