    Ya, I really need to start using it... I could have used it on a load I was on but a 10 worked although it was very tight. Had I used the 8/2 it would have been a bit more cushion and then head to the yard for what turned out to be a 34 waiting for a trailer from Broken Bow to arrive.

    but that was the morning after the Debates so I was already up late and then rolling at 3:30 so I wasn’t going to roll at 1:30... lol

    but ya, I need to just use it on random days so its a sharper tool in the bag.

    I could see using it to adjust your start/end times too... like today my 10 isn’t up until 2 but I could have left at noon and just take an extend break later... and push my starts to a more reasonable time.
     
    BOO! Thanks this.

    That tire rating is only good if you're running the minimum tire pressure for the tire which is printed on the tire right next to the weight rating. A lot of guys believe that's the maximum tire pressure but it's the minimum pressure to get the maximum weight rating.

    Dang, I thought my KW was just heavy. I'm 11,700 full of fuel. I have a 13,200 steer also.

    Oh, so it doesn’t see the two and know? You have to pair them up manually? Or is that maybe to avoid getting yelled at prior to completing the 10 later?

    also, the mixed on duty and off duty to get a 30 works too. Stopped to fuel ... used 20 On Duty and 15 Off Duty and it did see it as a qualifying 30 break.

    Heading home for a day off the truck then to Four Oaks to drop this load... and then my next load will be at... Liberty.

    I hope they have gotten their stuff together.

    Just logged an unneeded 34 in Fremont while waiting on this load to arrive, day off on Sunday coming, followed with a visit to Liberty... next week‘s paycheck might be a bit light.

    With that said, this last paycheck crossed the 30k for the quarter, barely, so I guess I should be getting the bonus. When do they release the bonus? It’s given as a check and not direct deposit correct?
     
    RStewart and BOO! Thank this.

    I’m not sure what a ‘will pair’ SB button is...
    You MUST do the 7-8 segment in SB. The 2-3 segment can be SB or Off duty. The elog figures out the timing. There is no special pairing needed. At least not on Omnitrax’s or Peoplenet....
    FYI: You cannot use PC while in SB. You will have to do the whole 10 at that point.
