    (i).even though your in your sleeper are you not still sitting at the dock WAITING to load/unload? ..Off-duty is time spent at the house or the trk at the terminal and your far from it doing (your) kind of activites..you probably just go off-duty or sleeper to "save" hours to run,thats one way to put in free time for the company..Not this driver,l'm in your truck,l'm on duty and l expected to be paid for ALL spent in said trk..

    You've got one rule that says all time at the dock needs to be on duty
    You've got another rule that says all time resting in a CMV needs to be logged OFF or SB

    Tie goes to the runner

    Unless I'm unloading myself, I'm off duty. If I hire someone else to unload my freight (lumpers, natch), I can hardly be considered to be working while the truck is being unloaded. Especially if I am in the sleeper with my feet up, watching TV. Log it as you do it, the man said.
