I tend to leave mine on during the day too. This time of the year I’m making home heating oil deliveries (unfortunately) and almost always have to park in the road in front of the houses or as close to the tank locations as I can get. I try not to park in driveways unless I have to in case I have a leak, spill or just a few drops of diesel from the hose nozzle. I’ve had quite a few close calls with people not paying attention but the 4 ways and the headlights help especially when I have to park the wrong way in the road. It’s not company policy, it’s more for my safety. Same goes for the big truck but luckily I don’t have to worry about parking in the middle of the road with that.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Another check for always on. I switched to LED so I don't worry so much about them burning out. I used to run Zenon HID in my old Kenny and they would burn out/break after a month or so

I don’t have a choice because my truck has daytime running lights but I leave all the other lights off if the sun is out.
