Got it in 3 different (wide) holes. 2 off-sets and one not-so-straight-line and spent a little time with a real Driver.

Thanks PJ!

ALWAYS enjoy spending time with you. Driving your Pete was REALLY SPECIAL! Considering the oversized steering wheel I feel like my oversteering tendency is maybe actually getting better. And figuring out that is was bigger shows I was paying attention to a few things. Probably need to look at air pressure guages a bit more often when backing (like I do).

Not sure to which one of us that was directed, but like I keep saying...

Who knew what a bunch of funny Truckers I would find here!?!

Was a pleasure Marc. I always like to see people succeed. Was very easy on my part you did all the work!!

You gotta watch those old school Navy Chief’s. They are very accomplished at being comedians. They are a different breed for sure. shocked.png

Getting in and out of strange men's trucks at the truck stop is a good way for a fella to get a "reputation". Just sayin.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
