    You mean where the "mechanics" (LOL) stare blankly at the truck and then report "cannot reproduce the problem"? Yeah, when it comes to Mega shops, Been There Done That Bought The T-Shirt.

    :mad:

    When you use opti idle are the knobs up front set to full blast, and full cold? I have a 2021 and if the knobs aren't set right things get wonky

    If I shut the truck off, wait 30 seconds, then just turn the key to on (w/o starting it), then reset the opti-idle with comfort on...it goes back to working right.

    That would most likely be the case with me. When I had the PA shop look at the inverter to replace it, it hadn't just almost burned out, so there wasn't that gawdawful melting smell, so they switched it on...everything lit up and worked. I told them to run it for 10 min and then take a sniff, but they wouldn't. They said there is nothing wrong with is, and it's normal for it to kick off when you start the truck.

    So they route you an extra 80 miles to get fuel but do they pay you for all the miles?

    Well, it was fairly accurate to the actual miles that route added up to. But because of the delay getting me loaded, I didn't have the hours to go that way and make it to a decent place to park after passing the Love's in N.Las Vegas, and that Love's is a good distance from my delivery. Going my way, I beat their paid miles by a few dozen, and got a heck of a lot closer before taking my 10.

    I used to go to the Indian casino and truck stop just north of the Loves. Cheap cigars and booze and a small diner area.

    You know, it's never a good sign when your load info for a shipper has specific instructions to follow in order to receive detention...and those instructions are before any load, pu or del numbers. And, I see why. Live loading at Kraft in Union City GA...or I should say, sitting in front of my trailer, waiting for it to be loaded in Union City. Looks like some more steak money this week. Made almost $100 in detention last week. Sure am glad they don't do things like they use to here as far as detention pay.

    I’m at a scrap yard. They really make sure you don’t pull away from dock too soon LoL. This scrap yard is the most clean and organized I’ve ever seen. Very orderly.

    While the sign is a bit overkill, it *IS* nice to see a scrapyard that doesn't look like a rat's nest.

    The sad thing is probably why they had to make that sign lol
