Hi. Iam a 5 year driver and work for schneider. I used to drive the 2018 freightliner. Just got the new 2023 and am having issues. I had 1 roll stibility in 4.5 years. In the new truck 5 in 4 months. It seems that in rain its really sinsitive. Is it just me or anyone else getting lots in the new trucks? Will need to quit before i get a bad rep.

The new trucks are overly sensitive. I had no critical events in my first two trucks, in this new one I had multiple in a few days. Going over the analytics with my DTL, for me it was coming out of turns and speeding up to merge. Any time I start to speed up coming out of a turn it triggers roll stability. Really have to baby it on those ramps/turns. It can make getting up to speed to merge a real pita.

Why don't they just tone down the alerts? I assume the telemtry has the exact data as well as just "alert." So if the sensors ready x.xx° lean and y.yy G force unless the sensors are bad just adjust it so the alerts only trigger at the readings they do in the older trucks.

My 22 has had 0 alerts aside from the bridge and other phantom "collision imminent" silliness.

If it's known that it will signal an alert warning, and the vehicle settings have been verified as accurate by the mechanics, how about just slowing down more? A few minutes each day will not affect much but it will improve a driver's safety rating. That would be a higher priority for me.

A lot of Schneider drivers on here today!!! I am on my own now.... Scary stuff but it came with a 2022 Freightliner Cascadia with just a hare over 40,000 miles haven't been having to much issues with it but since I am new I don't drive a lot in the heavy rain yet.

The sensors and related software need to be calibrated and/or recalibrated. Especially when brand new.

Keep in mind there is a “learning” aspect of sorts that will over a period of time reduce and minimize false reads (like underpasses).

But I agree with Pack Rat… slow it down. Safer is better than sorry.
