May I take a 34 hour reset in sleeper berth status or not?

Sleeper Berth:

The portion of the tractor behind the seats which acts as the "living space" for the driver. It generally contains a bed (or bunk beds), cabinets, lights, temperature control knobs, and 12 volt plugs for power.

Your breaks are "Off Duty". SB is off duty. Sweet dreams, Moe.

I always do a combo of Off and Sleeper Berth.

Cool. I am here at Loves 💘 in Hepburn, Idaho for my 34, I had to bobtail in PC like 7 miles or so as I was simply out of my 70 hour to move on legally. I am going to take a few minutes and post a first week update soon (as in as soon as I am done typing this comment) please he patient as I am typing on my phone and it is time consuming to spell check and double check in order to make sure I don't sound like.....special....yea...lol

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Your 34 is all off duty. SB is while you are in the sleeper section of your truck.

I'm taking my 34 in the truck, at a Loves station.

Don't worry about typos. I want to see the content and I don't care about your spelling.

Yes, but you will go in to use the bathroom or shower. You can't be in SB while in the front of your truck or out of your truck.

Well you can read it now, I just don't like sounding tarded, so I proofread and take my time.....

I was told by logs unless I didn't leave the sleeper at all I had to switch to off duty status. DOT may ask if you spent the entire 34 sleeping according to them and if you said no it's a violation

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
