Quick update, tractor assignments said once I recover this truck and get it to our terminal in Salt lake, that I can check out the 2020 fraightliner and if I like it, then I can have it.

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.

Sorry about the deer, but otherwise glad to see your work ethic paying off; enjoy the new ride!

Jamie, have you asked about getting a push guard, or in your case deer guard installed?

I haven't asked but at this rate, I probably need one!

Picking up my rental car soon, then I got to go clean my truck out since I'll be getting another one once I take the recovered truck up to Salt Lake City. I guess someone else will recover this truck from the dealership once it's done getting fixed.

Glad you are alright. The deer that hit me took out my rt headlight assembly, on-board sensor, bumper and the front grille. Anyway, the 2019 and 2020 freightliner they took out the air bag dump, the use of air actuated kingpin release and the weight air guarge. Just to let you know.

Our new trucks dont have the suspension weight gauge either. Ive become WAY to attached to that helpful tool.

That might be a company-specific thing. My 2020 freightliner still has those features, thankfully. Very useful!

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Exactly as RD points out, it is a company option to order these features for their fleets. Air dump, pyrometer gauges, driving lights, fifth wheel release, etc. are all still available options.

My fault. Should have been more specific as to what I meant. Apparently Millis got a sweet deal from Kenworth on some 2020 T680s that some other company canceled or just refused not sure on the details. But they are setup different.
