Seeking Advice For Military Veterans

Hello, this is my first time posting. I am new to TT. Has anyone heard of Troops Into Transportationi>? I am a US Army veteran. I have the option of using their CDL School to receive the training I need in order to get my CDL or as I have been reading I can go through a company that has their own CDL School. I am married, no children. I can start whichever process as soon as possible. Any advice at all for someone considering trucking as a career is welcome too. Thank you, have a blessed day! Cecelia "Cece"

Try UPS. Or an LTL carrier. Like Old Dominian, Saia, and you are a woman, and that actually could help you. Good Luck. And, THANK YOU for your service!!!!

Tandems Won't Slide

Along with those rocks you got in the tractor, stop and get a can of PB Blaster. Next time spray it in the channel for the tandems. That stuff fixes everything... Dry gladhand seals? Spray it.. Something won't move? Spray it.. Pins won't retract spray it... Then beat it with a hammer. Step two will still work but it's easier if you spray it first. A little lube goes a long way.

I sure wouldnt spray ANYTHING on the slider. It will make it worse in the long run. Just get it to slide, then, move it occasionally so it will not sieze up.
