    I switched after I finished my TNT training n did my Ace-1 upgrade. I have to be out for 30 days with this guy to learn securement. Also need practice meneuvering a spread axle trailer. They turn a lot different than tandems do. Also a difference between going forward n back. Cannot turn these trailers like a reefer trailer. Its not as much work as people make it out to be.... Also far FAR more interesting than the reefer side.
