That was very expensive lesson for me to learn. $160 to be exact. That's what I paid the locksmith to pick my lock in 5 seconds. That'll teach me for being to lazy to hang one by my DEF tank with a zip tie like Rainy told me to do 1000 times. Now I have keys everywhere.

I had one near my DEF tank on my old truck but I just got this one less then two weeks ago. I thought I put a key outside but guess not 🤷

It's a lesson I'm sure I'll pay for since Schneider was nice enough to pay for it the first time like 6 months ago. Of course i wouldn't be mad since my dumbass left my keys in the truck to start with. rofl-1.gif

I've already found one that the previous driver of my truck left under the hood. Although if I could find it, maybe it wasn't hidden well enough!

That's the part of the pre trip they don't teach you at school.

Yeah, Jaimie, a key on a lanyard around the neck is a must for me. It's part of my wardrobe.

I asked my FM if Prime had a dumba$$ rookie mistake fund for my dumba$$ locking the keys in the truck? He laughed but sadly said, tough luck!!

You lucked out with Schneider hooking you up. Don't know if you know how to open it with a hanger but it's worth trying. Better than paying a locksmith! I guess I can try to walk you through it if you find a thin metal hanger. Not a solid one though.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Going on about and hour and a half and they haven't found anyone to come out yet. embarrassed.gif

Might be a long night of sitting in the back of my trailer. rofl-1.gif

I carry one in my wallet, but you can't lock your keys in our trucks at least the Kenworths I have had... you have to manually lock the doors. That's a blessing for me because I locked myself out of my pick up all the time

I got a call from them, they said they have been trying to find someone but they are either closed or I'm to far away..

I did it once in my yard, I hit the button getting out and locked myself out. Had to do the walk of shame to the terminal to borrow a key to get in lol.

You might want to invest in the ol spare key around the neck, so you cant keep doing that. smile.gif

I need to do something! rofl-1.gif

Put spare key in your wallet :) lol had that happen years ago at work, pulled up to shop at quitting time 1 night, left my car running, while I ran to my locker, co workers thought they be funny and lock/close my door! took a bit with coat hanger to pop my lock! After that my spares went in my wallet!! They didn't get me again! haha

Funny thing is, I have one in my wallet... But I left my wallet in my truck as well. rofl-3.gif

I had to use the restroom and didn't really think about anything, beside putting my shoes on and got out. Big mistake. shocked.png

I'm sure I'll be paying for it this time, oh well. rofl-3.gif

I'll put another key on the outside of my truck once I get it unlocked.

Put two out there

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
