    So I have a pick up for early tomorrow afternoon at Cavendish Farms in Jamestown. Matt said the customer was very flexible and usually loaded early. Rolled in 24 hours before my appointment, expecting to be turned away. Called the number, told them my PU#, got told that "your dispatch is full of #### as always", then promptly got hung up on.

    I wasn't expecting to be loaded that early but really? A simple no would've sufficed, and i would've been more than happy to wait until tomorrow. Considered calling and saying no way jose about the load but everyone has gone home for the weekend.

    Stuff like this makes me wonder why i got my CDL in the first place.

    Hang in there buddy. The nice thing about being OTR is that in a couple days you will be several states away from that idiot and you will be on to bigger and better things! Meanwhile, he will still be stuck at the job that he hates.

    When I was OTR with Magnum, I regularly loaded one to two days early there. As long as they had the product available, they were pretty good about getting you loaded and down the road even if you were early.

    Can't remember who but someone mentioned to me to look out for a 2023 sleeper Cascadia with to see if it had a digital dash.

    Well i saw one in the yard in Fargo and am here to report that it was ordered with the standard analog gauge package. Probably for the best to stick with tried and true stuff. Been hearing that the next gen PACCAR trucks have had their fair share of glitches (what a surprise). I'd be kinda pissed if i had to stop and cycle the ignition just to get my gauges working again. Never had that issue with analog gauges, truck or car.

    Having glitches is not exclusive to digital dashboards. Though lord knows I am not a fan of the new dash, or the stupid tiny mirrors on the new petes. I have had to cycle the key before to get a 2018 W 900 and a 2007 International prostar to get the gauges to function. And it was a pretty regular thing to have to cycle the key in a 2013 volvo I drove for a time to get any sound out of the radio. Long gone are the days of speedo cables. Everything runs through the computer first these days.

    As I mentioned in this thread, that's the only thing that's gone wrong with my 2023 Peterbilt is the digital dash freezing up on me. I went and got a software update in the Twin Cities area a week or so ago, and my dash has gone out on me once since then. Luckily, I was able to stop the truck, take out the key and then the dash unfroze itself.

    When you guys say you are having to "cycle the ignition", I'm assuming you need to turn the truck off and take the key out for a good 10 seconds or so, then put the key back on, turn the key to the right but then my question is do you actually turn on the truck to unfreeze the digital dash or just leave the key turned to the right without actually starting the truck?

    Because before the recent software update that I got a week ago to fix the dash freezing problem, I tried turning the truck on and off to try to get the dash to unfreeze itself but it didn't work.

    Getting a PM done today and I called Shawn N. (from maintenence) and asked him about the PM intervals. On my window sticker (that the Fargo shop put on) when I first got this truck it said:

    PM1 (grease/fuel filter) 30,000 miles
    PM 2 (full PM with oil change) 60,000 miles
    APU (full PM) 2,000 hours

    But Shawn told me that it's actually:

    PM1 (grease/fuel filter) 25,000 miles
    PM2 (grease/fuel filter) 50,000 miles
    PM3 (full PM with oil change) 75,000 miles
    APU (I'm assuming oil and oil filter change with a full PM) once per year

    Has anyone else had discrepancies with PM intervals like this, where the sticker on the windshield from the Fargo/Coon Rapids shop says one thing but the maintenence department will say another thing?

    I was supposed to start magnum as an OTR trainee on Monday but my son caught Covid. I was just wondering can y’all tell me if it’s a good job? What the pay like weekly? I live all the way down in Mobile and I’m kinda nervous they won’t ever be able to get me home because it’s so far south. Can y’all give me some info?
