    I searched everywhere and get the same stuff 7/3 and 8/2. I also messaged dot to see what they say.

    Scenario. To make easy I'm a bad driver today and didn't do pretrip or post trip etc.
    At 5 am I drive 5 hrs
    At 10 am I sleeper for 7 hrs
    At 5 pm I drive 3
    At 8 pm I sleeper for 7 hrs.

    At the end of my 2nd 7 hr break, how much clock do I have left? I'm assuming if I combined my 2nd 7 with the last 3 of my first 7 hr sb I'd get 8 hrs of drive time back and 11 of my 14 back.

    I tried it 2 times and failed.The ELD stopped the 14 clock but going back on duty after the second SB I only had 1:42 of time.So I only do 10 hour resets now.
    We use Samsara,there's some extra toggles to use when you go to split SB time.

    You would have 8 hrs available on your 11 hr clock, and 11 hours available on your 14 hr clock.

    I'm ashamed to say after 20 years and HOS changes, I have no idea how to run a split.

    All I know is 11 in 14, break for 30 min after 8 hours, and 70hrs/8 days.

    I feel they have made many things far too complicated for the average driver, and taken away the forced learning of paper logs, pencil and paper, and a Casio calculator. It taught penmanship, where you were on a map, calculating skills, and diligent routine.

    In example when you go into Sleeper for second time after 7 hours you'd have 8 hours driving time.
    That's because you subtract the 3 hours from 11 you drove after your first Sleeper.
    The two Sleepers added up to 10+ hours in total so that's why you get that 8 hours back.

    If you were in Sleeper for 3 hours, drove 3 hours and then took 7 hours Sleeper you'd still have have 8 hours driving.

    It's all how the combo adds up to the minimum.
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.

    If it can't be done 14 hour day then it's gonna have to wait until the next day.

    Years ago along with logbooks, we could buy a rolling mileage pen, I had one myself.

    You would set it for how ever many miles per inch, and roll it along the route curves and all, and it would give you an approximate mileage of the route.

    Now it’s all electronics, and every day I’m out here I find that electronic devices have not saved trucking nor the world….

    8 hrs drive time. When you took the 2nd 7 hr break, you got 8 hrs back once your 2nd 7hr break reached 3 hrs. You could have driven at that point. You swapped it the other way, so you would have needed to park for 3 hrs next time.
