My engine was turned off. I always lock my cab and draw the curtains.

I usually feel pretty safe, but today, while in my sleeper, my tractor rocked heavily as though someone had climbed up to my passenger window and stepped off again.

I had that happen last night too. At a rest area. I thought someone had hit the truck as this spot was packed to the gills. I still don't know what it was. I got up and opened the curtain but I didn't see anything.

I hear ya, but at that point, I'm already in contact with the perpetrator.

Same here. Rest stop. Saw nothing. Broad daylight.

Mag light wouldn't have an impact in daylight.

Yeah, it will have an IMPACT! Depends on how you use it.

Yup. A 5 D cell Maglite has quite an IMPACT! shocked.png

When your brakes are set and your airbags bleed off it can cause the truck to lurch as a trailer will push forward and when the brakes slip a little it will cause that.
