    When I was there (2011-2014), the rule was no more than 10% OOR miles on a trip. There could be variances due to weather, but even then, there was usually no reason to go that far OOR. I planned my trips according to weather and traffic and almost always had some sort of OOR miles. Was never an issue.

    My truck needed a PM so I went home last Friday. Called the shop today and truck still has some issues, may not be done by the end of the week.

    I am content to stay at home for now, but what point will they force me out on a loaner truck?

    The issues aren’t severe, but it looks like it won’t be ready until Monday or Tuesday.

    I’d rather stay at home than take some ratty loaner truck that has who know what problems. Also I just spent almost 3 months continually on the road.

    Coming up on that seven day rule though..

    You don't have to take a loaner if you don't want too.
    If you got enough money, sit at home till your truck
    Is fixed.

    Don't say anything to anybody.
    Just keep in contact with the shop.
    When your truck is done, put yourself on
    The board.

    If the loaner breaks down somewhere,
    You have to go back and get it.
    Don't worry about the 7 days off limit.
     
    28 and Harry Flashman Thank this.
