    Some dirt lots are packed better then others. Avoid water holes the best you can, some are very deep. And near the edge may not be as packed as the rest of the lot. Learning exp , is how you look at it.

    It's possible at some point in time it might show up on your DAC only way to tell is give it some time then order your free copy and check and see. Highly doubtful they will charge you with an accident. I am sure it wont show up on any MVR as the DMV could care less if you get stuck. I would also not discount gravel lots as a place to park just be more aware of your surroundings.

    The wobble is most Likely packed mud throwing something off balance. Check engine light ?

    I was dug in pretty deep. The truck sunk about a foot. trailer was never stuck. Well, International is working on my truck and I hope I can deliver this load on time tomorrow!

    And yeah... I still can't back worth a shxt so I was at a ###### up angle.... I got a lot to learn. I saw a guy yesterday just whip right into a truck stop and back into a spot like it was nothing. One day I'll be able to do that. I'm still wondering how I'll hit that dock tomorrow but... I'll get it eventually.
     
    RAGE 18 Thanks this.

    Thats what OTRM thinks. The dealership is going to take care of it. Engine light is due to something up with the turbo, they are going to install a new turbo which is warranteed.

    There shouldnt be a need to fire you. If your safety department has dealt with rookies before, they will realize that the odds of a rookie making the same mistake twice is actually quite slim.
