    So due to extreme cold in MN and WI ill havta idle my truck all night at least the next two nights. How bad will that hurt my idle % ? I want to stay below 20%. How do I know what I'm currently at? On my drivers page there are two numbers. ITrip idle 13.6% and Xtd idle 6.7%

    A female beggar tried to open my door rather than talk through the window and was surprised to find it locked. "It's locked" she said as if I might unlock it for her. Then she made a move with her hand towards my mirror as if to climb up on the step but thought better of it. Maybe if I wont unlock the door I also don't want you climbing on the truck; glad you worked that out yourself.

    What is with people? Do you think I've never heard your exact story from a dozen others just like you? Also of note: "I'm scared to be here; can I just have a few dollars for gas?" only works in the city, not 100 miles from the nearest violent criminal.
     
    Arkansas Frost and Jarhed1964 Thank this.

    Let your DM know about extreme conditions and the need to idle... That way hopefully you won't get dinged for a high idle number... As to the drivers page, we don't pay attention to that part, since we pay for the fuel the company has no say about our idle. So we can't help you with that part, but someone else might...

    Finishing up my week of orientation in Fontana. I am scheduled to leave with my trainer tomorrow. It looks like I will be training on the Kraft dedicated fleet. I am looking forward to seeing you all out on the road. Safe travels.!

    I'm in Nebraska. I can't remember which truck you got, but my bunk heater heats my sleeper even at 18 degrees. 9 degrees or colder and I might idle a few more hours. It sucks getting use to and this new sleeping bag I have helps. But once I started buying fuel the idling stopped! Lol. Being company, just shrug your shoulders and say, "Me cold!!" Good luck man. (One year and a week since I quit my job in the real world!! West bound and down, loaded up and truckin...)

    It was 16 this morning and my bunk heater couldn't keep up. I idled for about 30 minutes to warm it up. The thing is when it's under 50° in my sleeper I won't get out from under my blanket, and late loads aren't an option.

    I don't mind sleeping in cold, I've got thick blankets and a bunk heater, but about the time it starts getting below 20 degrees my truck struggles to get going in the morning. I put the key in, wait for it to go through its setup, and them the DEF light flashes red rather than going up to its normal amount, if I try to start it up it just clicks like its dead. And that's been when it was 18 over night. I don't dare try when it is 10 like tonight in WI, -8 like it was last night in MN, or 0 like it will be Sunday night in WY.
