    After a short four weeks of training was headed to Tontitown to go through my upgrade process but as luck would have it, it was to far out of route so I got transferred to the Irving yard and after three days I am now in a old ##### FL century class autoshift with optimized idol BS. But I can handle it because now I can finally get to make some money.

    Two quick questions about the century class when just sitting after it shuts itself down for the opti idle I hear a ticking sound in the dash. Is this normal? Second the hud says it has 2 active faults but the truck runs good and everything. Seeing as how I'm trying to get a load to get me home in northeast Arkansas should I get them checked out now or wait until I get home.

    Something I just remembered my bunk only has one curtain and is missing the snaps from the slide rail should I have dispatch schedule all of this to get fixed after a lil r&r or just show up at the shop?

    1) Yes, the ticking is normal. It's your relays kicking in/off.

    2) I would get that looked at before you leave. It's probably in need of an update; no big deal.
