    That's how I usually would have done it. One load bar at shoulder level and one at waist level below it and then one and a half pallet spaces away from the nose.

    I've deliberately done that a time or two to burn up trailer space when my dispatcher pissed me off by having me go backtracking stuff that should have been picked up earlier.

    If you drive a single screw pulling a long box you pretty much have to do it that way.

    That moment dispatch gives you 10 pu’s, with a 48’ trailer.

    Then the 2nd one fills up said trailer. Lol.

    Dispatch always thinks 1 PU = 1 regulation size skid.

    Thats the truth here. Our new dispatcher is still learning though, so I cut him slack on this one. Lol.

    That might work with a tandem axle.

    Phew had a nice scare today!

    sure I’ll get a drive cam on it.

    I was making a right hand turn into a business, and my truck did its blind spot beep. I looked saw nothing. I proceed to take the turn, and about 20-30ft away I see a bicyclist; scares me I slam on the brakes dude keeps going almost hitting the trailer. He then proceeds to try to go around me instead of stopping, and letting me finish the right hand turn.

    I swear the guy blended in with the scenery, and that safety blind spot thing gives so many false flags I’ve almost become deaf to it. It’ll beep to everything as if you’re going to run over a stop sign,a “no u-turn” sign, or a tree.
