Mr. Brett, there are some things that have changed on Prime's Pretrip Inspection and if you can please edit it for me.

1: Brake Lining:

Please delete "There is at least 1/4" of friction material".

Replace that with "Friction Material is not worn dangerously thin".

That goes for all the Brake Lining on every section.

2: Delete the Steering Column entirely including the picture.

3: On the Daniel's Tip for the Steering Items it states:

Daniel's Tip: Feel free to combine the Steering Column, Pitman Arm, Drag Link, and Tie Rod and state that you'll be checking all of these the same way. Example: Point at each item and name the part, then state "I check all of these the same way, they're all to be Properly Mounted and Secure and not Cracked, Bent, or Broken. That's it!

Please change that to what I have written below.

Daniel's Tip: Combine the Pitman Arm, Drag Link, Tie Rod, Castle Nuts and Cotter Pins and state that you'll be checking all of these the same way. Point at each item and name the part, then state "I check all of these the same way, they're all to be Properly Mounted and Secure and not Cracked, Bent, or Broken. While pointing at the Castle Nuts and Cotter Pins don't forget to state that there are no Missing Castle Nuts or Cotter Pins. All of these items make up your Steering Linkage.

4: Under the Coupling Section please edit the Air Lines by deleting this "not dragging along the catwalk and not tangled."

Edit the Daniel's Tip to say "Don't forget to say "At both ends." Be sure to point at both the red and blue air line.

5. Change the name of "Sliding Fifth Wheel Locking Pin" to "Sliding Fifth Wheel And Locking Pin". Keep everything else the same on this item.

That's all for now. We do our very best to keep up with the constant changes the industry is making!

Interesting changes.

For indiana, you still mention the air lines not dragging the catwalk, hence being a possible tripping hazard and getting wrapped in the drive shaft.

The 1/4" minimum on brake lining material is a DOT measurement and remains that way as per DOT standards.

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.

Robert, that Pretrip Inspection is exclusive to Prime and Misouri. It is not a good example for other states. Every state has their Pretrip inspection procedures slightly different.

If you went to Prime or will be going to Prime this is exactly what you'll need to know in order to get your CDL. If you're going to Prime, I encourage you to read my thread before heading to Prime and make an effort to try to memorize it to get ahead of the competition.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Hey Daniel, where do I find your "Daniels tip" thread and other threads specific to Prime?

The Daniel's Tip is part of my Pretrip Inspection thread where I talk about the item and how Prime wants it inspected and then I give my personal tip on that item.

Here's my thread about the drivers first year income.

My first year income

Here's my mega-thread where I documented my days on the road.

Adventures of Daniel B.

And here's a more recent thread where I document my month of trucking in December.

A month of trucking in the winter!

And on top of that here's a super detailed thread I made about the Lightweight trucks at Prime.
