Yea Ex, you have to be in the sleeper berth. It seems crazy cause you'd think the safest place to be while the truck is moving if your not driving would be the passenger seat with a seatbelt on, but that's the way it is. I guess they figure if we are on duty 12 hrs the ONLY way to get rest is to stay in the sleeper or out of the truck. Makes me wonder how an attorney or a dr or a student that has pulled an all nighter is allowed to get behind the wheel of a car. Just my thoughts.
i guess i'm not reading this right. if its a "team", how can the off duty guy be "off the truck" or "off duty only when the truck is parked". isnt the object of a team, to be rolling 20+hrs?. i'm looking a teaming and i do have questions about this. if we work in 12hr shifts, on my off 12, i have to stay in the sleeper if the truck is moving? i'm not able to sit in the passenger seat? this doesnt sound right!
Thanks, this helps.
You cannot be in the jump seat and off duty, in fact i believe off duty is off the truck, hopefully it is stopped. lol
No, just sleeper birth, and technically you cant be up in the passenger seat, if caught just say you came up for a smoke, you can only be off duty when trk. is parked and there is no buisness with the trk going on, which includes maint.
Yea Dieseldog, seems he messed around with it and got it fixed, not too sure what he did. Thanks for the help .
Hi Sonbell, just checking to see if you got that fuel tank problem resolved?
Thanks dieseldog, I will pass this on to my husband...hopefully this works.
It sounds like your fuel tanks are not venting. Most trucks have the vents in the caps. Loosen the caps and see if the fuel level evens out. I have had to replace the caps or drill a small hole and install a brether,similar to the breather on the diffs.
If that does not work, there is a junction valve that needs to be replaced usually over top of the transmission that has 3 hoses coming out of it,one to the engine,the other two to the tanks.
