    Back when I worked at the horrible western express they deducted like $15/wk for transflo so I MADE sure to scan every page i could find, and maybe a 2nd time to be sure.

    Didn't realize your frozen goods had so many BOL to deal with o.o.

    F T/A anyway. I have had my T/A Ultra One card so long, it's cracked in 2 places. I have had work done on various company's trucks over the last year or so, and each time they have me swipe my card. Late last week, I was given a T/A to fuel at, no mention of my card/account being deactivated thru any of this. Today, decide to use my 1 shower credit (or the shower credit I thought I had) before it expired, only to be told that my account is deactivated. She said your account gets deactivated after 3 months of inactivity...so I fueled enough to get a shower, but nothing gave me an error or issue when I swiped my card...F the T/A-Petro franchise. No wonder Love's is kicking every other truckstop's butt...customer service (or lack of) is what keeps or runs off loyal customers.

    And my week keeps going downhill. Got to the receiver...no empties, so I PC'd bobtail to a truckstop. Will head back in the morning and hope for an empty...but the worst news, they're already pulling me out of this workhorse with a manual transmission and putting me in a #### auto Freightliner... I am also suppose to have my new hire evaluation...this is gonna be a lousy weekend.

    Trading it early. Usually they wait between 450-500k, mine has 408k.

    But, Creaffer locks out manual mode and puts a 3 minute idle limit on their Freightliners...and if the Freighliner inverter is like the one in this truck, the low voltage cutoff on the inverter is higher than the autostart, so brewing my morning java won't work since it won't idle enough to generate power.
     
    Dale thompson and 650cat425 Thank this.

    Do you not have an apu? If not guess your stuck in the drivers seat hitting the brake to cancel the idle shutdown

    They are still buying new manuals cause we have 2 up here with 2021 10 sp kenworths. Was told you could request to only drive a stick but it can be a gamble if you do get it. Usually those with a few years with the company are the ones they do make the exception and give them a stick.
