And got to thinking. Assuming the air horn literally uses air from the air tanks, how long would it take to empty them via blowing the air horn? This is what happens when I'm bored...

Hmmmmm. Is the truck running or not would be my first question but then again it might be fun to do it both ways to see just how good the compressor is.

Right! The pre trip when wqiting for six hours,

First Im going make sure its at at least 90 PSI then ill lay on my highway horn to see if the low air warning light and buzzer come on.

Hooooooooonk

Then ill check my cut out...

Then ill check my cut in by honking 1 little blast at a time then count ten seconds... Honk.

Next Im going to make sure the tractor protection control valve works.

Hoooooooooonk

Doing a tug test while locked on the dock would probably get some attention too....
