    Whoops, guess what this guy did. End of his trailer is in the grill of the guy parked on the end. When i first started driving, my trainer drilled it into my head, "never park on the end". Now over the years i can count on one hand the times i felt there was no choice but to park on the end but usually never will. 15612606565574620332693455186608.jpg 15612606565574620332693455186608.jpg 15612607094287070044209768991286.jpg

    Take care bro! I fell out of my Magnum truck a few years ago and gave myself a good concussion. To this day I can’t recall being in the hospital for 8 hrs and most of the day after I got home. I asked my wife, every 3 minutes, if I had wrecked my truck. Took several weeks for the symptoms to clear up...

    That’s one thing I like about driving a tank~majority of the time I park at the customers or a terminal

    Parked next to a ShipEx truck last night just north of Nashville. I gotta say I was impressed with the Opti-Idle. I didn’t know if it’d be starting and shutting off every 5 minutes or what would be goin on. Didn’t bother me any it idled just as much as I did in the humid night it seemed. How’s everyones week been?

    Not as enjoyable as I had hoped. Came home for time off and slipped and fell out of my truck. So I have been semi laid up all week recovering from it. Doing better and will be back out on Monday. Stuff happens.

    I totally understand why at 2 am your clock is gone and you have to park somewhere.....but if you set an alarm for 7-8 am there will be plenty of legal spots to park in. Get your butt up and move it.

    Yeah it's a pretty mellow idle. Last night i was in Baker ca @ 100 degrees when i went to bed. Set the air at mid range and slept a full 8 hours undisturbed straight through. Of course there was no trucks close enough to bother me either. But pretty happy with it.
