Do you turn off reefer right as you dock ?

    You folks got me to thinking about my days pulling a reefer. One of the routes I'd do on occasion always had a backhaul out of the same warehouse. I swear, in the summer, that place would get above 120°F. I would set that thermostat down to 0° when I emptied out and roll in. The fellas working in there would darn near get in fights trying to be the one to load my truck. It was hilarious for me. The down side was that it seemed to take longer to get loaded there than most places due to all the extra time spent inside the trailer making sure those pallets were placed just right.
