I know this is going to sound like an odd question, bear with me. Does your trailer have an air-ride suspension?

Yes it does have air ride. I think first weight he set brakes and realized it so after fueling weight again without set

CAT scales are accurate because they're calibrated regularly. It's the scales you'll find at customers that are normally inaccurate. Always trust a CAT scale above all else.

Yes everyone is confirming what I know, need trust my self more. rescaling does not appear to be in budget. So trainer agreed to drive to state line weight station because he thinks scale is off and they will confirm that. Hope so, they may confirm big ticket.

G-town

Yes 5th wheel allway back. We added 497 lbs fuel and scaled before and after. That 497 puts an extra 630 lbs moved from trailer to tractor after fueling . 1117 total now more on tractor is that even possible. That's what it says comparing the two tickets.

Patric Thanks for info. Place loaded is 1-1/2 hours away. But has several locations in state. I recommended going to another and shifting load back since we have plenty room. But he not interested in that.

Headed to Prime CDL training!

Man we were busy. Love the Flatbed. Got behind on diary. Was out for 10 days but 3 were hotel while trainer had a 34.

great trainer, new trainer but very patient. Didn't get any backing on road so worked with me two days when got back on the pad. Passed everything first go around.

Picked up TT trainer and leaving tonight for 30k OTR. Great to finally have that license. Prime is a very good school.

I was lucky and did my PSD permit training in standard so got a lot practice in for test unlike those that go out in automatic and have to come back learn standard in two days.

Going out now in 2018 Peter

First pick up yesterday and deliver today. already hooked up again heading out morning. Really like Flat bed. Got good trainer teaching me ropes. It's dirty sweaty job tarping but great exercise. Gets blood pumping.

Driving by going good. Still few shifting problems. Seventh gear hates me. Got bad habits trying break resting hand on stick shift and not going back stearing wheel and turning dam blinker off. Had good two days.
