Hi guys .. I worked really hard on a new video about the sleeper berth split rules. I show the QC to explain as well.

I hope this helps.

Explaining the 8/2 Split

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.

Awesome, for sure . . . Thanks, Kearsey/Rainy !!

I was transfixed, right from the 'push' video alert. Very well done. My other half never 'did' get it in his OTR days, . . . nor did he 'need' to .. at the time, or something; so.. neither did I. Great job.

This, y'all .... is very very good!!!!

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Kearsey, that was an awesome video and it helped me a lot. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the split sleeper provision and procedure, but thanks for putting together that tutorial. You rock!

Totally agree!

Yet, you know what's more important than getting the videos edited just right?

The CONTENT!

Kearsey; so much going on with the 'women' in 'trucking' all around, and I'm not meaning just the moniker of the same acronyms.

Thoughts? JB Hunt Announcement!.

Industry wide! Cummins' 1st female CEO !.

And. . . this could/should . . . be YOU!! Bluetooth Ad . . etc! Commercials, and all, haha!

There's more . . . haha! All I've got for now; Your stuff loooks great, tho!

Just a suggestion, that it's time for a 'womens' article/blog/video .. again?!?!? (Or soon!) ;)

ps: I'll share comments from commenters that don't YT comment at some point, haha!

Keep on, gal!

Good job and thanks for sharing. That's how I understand it but I'm not using it unless absolutely necessary. Thankfully, I rarely have the need for it.
